We sold out of the trucking business and went back to cowboying. So we bought horses instead trucks. Been pretty busy fall works is in progress. Gathering all the cattle out of the mountains, sorting off the pasture cattle that get shipped back to CA. Soon we will be weaning and shipping the ranch calves.
1.) Hooey is my chestnut colt that I bought in August. He will be two in April, my next show prospect. Topsail Cody, Powder River Playboy and Doc's Oak on his papers..should have some cow!
Clyde is the bay gelding next to him. Great ranch horse, can really move, he can trot bigger than most horses can lope. He isn't pretty but he gets the job done! He is one of the horses we got in trade for Gracie our little gray paint mare(who is a college rodeo horse in MT now and winning money!) Also got a big sorrel horse "Gator", I haven't tried him out yet, Monday we are rodearing and sorting pairs so I will try him then.
2) Little bay colt that I bought, he is small not even 14H as a three year old. Topsail Whiz King Fritz and Dry Doc(who he really looks like). Fun colt to ride about ready to start his real job.
3) Baxter and I holding pairs in the weaning lot. Baxter is an outside horse I am riding for a friend. Barrel horse prospect that needs to learn how to be a real horse and get broke before the barrel pattern. He has a difficult personality but is getting better. Today was day four and he was pretty dang good today.
4) Jake on his favorite horse Zorro, first day on the job gathering the mountain.
It had snowed that morning but it had melted by 11 am.
5) Wrangling horses
6) Clyde and I first day back to work.
7) Sorrel horse we bought at the ranch horse sale. He's pretty flashy. Safest place to be is on his back, goofy on the ground. But he will watch a cow
