Yeah I asked her about whether she may know if the horse was an ex rodeo bronc..her reply..
Wow, I sure don't think she was a bronc. If they recognize the brand, there is always a possibility. However, I don't think rodeo stock contractors hobble their broncs. Not the one's I've met anyway. She has some scars on her lower pasterns that look to me like they came from long use of hobble straps. She was really opposed to having her feet handled when she first come to us, and I don't blame her. If every time some one touched your feet you were being strapped up, I not want anyone lifting my feet. She had improved a ton since then though. Did I tell you her other vice is fly spray. We are working on that and making progress there too, but still a challenge.
Let me know if your friends recognize the brand, I'd be interested to know. If you have any other questions, let me know.
I'll talk to my instructor today about possibly going out and seeing her this weekend.
