New horses and cowboy stuff

Thought I would share a few pics

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

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

Great pictures!

BTW, you can just go ahead and pack up little bay horse in the 2nd photo and he can come live in TX. I need a shorter horse .

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/

LOL! You do need some short ones! I don't know how you climb up on yours. I know I have hell getting on a tall horse. That little bay colt is perfect to on and off of, I think he might be 13.2H, 13.3H maybe?
I have an outside horse that's about 15.3H and a little snorty on the ground. I got on like I shouldn't have the other morning. I was cold, stiff and having hell getting on and jabbed him in the back ribs with my stirrup, he cow kicked at me and took off bucking...whoops...just confirmed my love for a short horse

LOL! I know, the other day hubby bought a S&W revolver, cowboy looking pistol, I jokingly asked if he was going to start packing it. He replied that he was "not that western"

We sure happy to be back doing what we love, life is good!

LOL, thankfully, my tall monsters are very mellow. If Rafe had ever acted snorty or broncy, I probably would never have even tried riding him. I joke that he's the type that's big and stout enough that if he ever took a mind to really buck, he'd split me in two all the way up.

He's very patient while I scramble up his side. Very reminiscent of when I was a kid of 5 or 6 and used to do the same thing on my 16hh horse LOL.

So glad you weren't hurt when that big ol' monster had his fit .
