Lol I wouldn't be angry! I'de there laughing! Lol that's some funny stuff! My grandpa had his horses in the round pen to clean out their pasture and of course they were retired cutting horses and the cows were in the other paddock running around and driving the other horses crazy! The horses just wanted to go teach'em a lesson! But they were on the other side! After my dad and grandpa brought the horses back out they wouldn't stop going in circles in the paddock! Lol too funny! XD

Um. Cutting horses typically don't herd - they cut and hold.

Yes mls, thank you. I've ridden many cutting horses and cowhorses. I'm aware of what they do. But how is that relevent? It's just a funny story I was sharing. It's old anyway. Does it make a differance what they "Typically" do? Because I wasn't telling you what they "Typically" do, I'm telling what Daisy and Scruffle did.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
