They own a cattle company. They buy up cheap (or free) horses. They then get on to see what kind of training they have. If they're trained, they keep them for cow horses. If they're not, they sell them to the public or ship them to slaughter. Horses are livestock to them, pure and simple, just like cattle.

I had thought they might have been dealers, so in a way, I suppose they are in some cases. Nothing wrong really, with looking upon horses as livestock. Not all of us consider our horses as pets. Are you going to see the horses?

If you're going to take one, I would take the sorrel overo. I can totally see that horse in the cutting or reining ring with some training. The one thing that stands out to me is that he's very straight through his hocks.

I went to see them Thursday. Not much to do other than look at them, though... they're not really set up for riding and I wasn't keen on climbing on a possibly untrained horse in the middle of a pasture.
