It was a love /hate relationship ;)

Two step process, I smashed the fender with the bale getting it in then crinkled the tailgate getting it out.
I promise I have done this hundreds of times and never ruined a truck. I guess today I made up for it.

LOL! Funny you mention that Andrew...I am thinking about bypassing fixing the truck temporarily...tee he...
However I made myself sick when I did it and cried. This pickup was the nicest thing I ever owned. Ah well it's just sheet metal I guess.
I am thinking a flatbed may be in order.

I'd go for the horse too, I can't even see the damage in the truck. Plus, next time you get hay it could happen all over again!

Yep, definitely time to go flatbed....but that can wait LOL.

I actually really like this colt. Sure, he's not perfect, but no horse really is. He's got a compact, tough looking "using body".

It seems to me that horses always look lighter in bone in pictures than they do in real life. I know that's the way most of mine are....in my pictures, they look like they've got chicken legs but they really have good bone when I'm standing there physically looking at them.

He's got a cow-horse head on him. Not "halter" pretty, but an intelligent head with wide set eyes and delicate ears. His neck is a bit funky looking in those pictures, but he's young and he was on the alert in most of those pictures, especially the one where his neck isn't hidden under his mane. He looks like it should look a lot better when he's bulked up with age and training and carried level instead of like a giraffe.

I think he's a nice looking colt with a lot of potential. Certainly worth a serious look.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Couldn’t agree more.
