Photos from a cattle drive

My friend Amanda rode my haffy/welsh cob, Summer


Heading out to find us some cows ;)



This couple have the most gorgeous TWH mares I;ve ever seen, and I REAAAAALLLLLY want the champagne mare!


Spotted the cows!



Summer's first glance at them lol



The champagne Walker I'm in love with :)


We took a little break. During a short stop, someone's horse went off bucking and tossed the guy, he cracked some ribs! They caught his horse and he INSISTED on riding back to camp (although they got him to ride a different horse). So while that was going on, we all just relaxed in some shade.
Harley's new saddle is SUPER COMFY!!!



Haha


The group waitin' around

Cow rider fell off, so gotta re-rope a cow!

Moving on to the pen



And here are some of the photos Amanda took.
I was riding my Fell gelding, Harley


There were some TAAAALLL weeds! Where'd my pony go?




Remember that shot of Amanda taking a photo?


Harley was good with the cows





That was fun!


Including the 15 minute or so break, it was about 4 hours of fun! :)

Very cool. Ya'll look like naturals at cow herding. LOL. We have about 600 head of yearlings that we will be gathering and shipping out sometime next month, ya'll are welcome to join us. We will need all the help we can get, they are kinda wild.

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/

Thanks!

Smorabs, I'd love to, if I could! How far are you from Brazoria, which is near Galviston? (sorry, I'm not sure where in Tx Amarillo is!) I have a friend there whom I'd sure would love to help ;)
