Haha no clue but I think they use smaller cows? But most of the cows used for those events have been used so much for shows and practice they pretty much know what's going on.

We use our 3 horse team to drive the geldings in from pasture and let me tell you that is alot of work as they really fight being herded by another horse lol. But that makes for even more good practice as there are lots of tight turns and cutting them off and driving them another way.

Herding miniature cows would be fun.

If I pull this off, the sight will be laughable - a rider with a big draft type in English gear, trying to herd other horses...in a dressage arena. LOL.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

Lol yes it will, I has always been doing it in my dressage saddle. It might take a bit to get used to.

In my experience owners don't like it when you try to herd their horses.

What about sheep or goats?

We're a friendly bunch and like doing lots of odd stuff together, so I suspect at least a couple of people who'd regard this as a fun opportunity. No horse will get herded without their owners' concern. :)

We don't have neither sheep nor goats - and the BO doesn't want any. She even refused llamas and alpacas.

Well if the owners of these horses don't like it then they can get their butt to the barn and bring their own darn horse in for the night. I don't enjoy trying to chase 9 geldings on foot through a pasture trying to get them in.

Saranda I am trying to convince everyone to get llamas for one purpose lol.....

Hehe I just love all the fur. There is an Icelandic that has recently started boarding at our barn and I have to give him hugs everyday because he's a giant teddy bear lol.
