    Kevin really wanted to get a llama or alpaca for a while, I'm not sure if he still wants one... I guess it depends if we get him a horse or not. There are only so many furry critters our little pasture can support!

    Cows usually don't charge horses, but if they do they're pretty clumsy and it's generally very easy for the horse to sidestep or evade the cow. I wouldn't want to try and herd longhorns though, those horns are wicked.

    Herding sheep is quite fun.Except they can cheat,they are small enough they can just scoot under your horses legs. :)

ARGH! Maybe there is some good literature or videos available on this topic you could suggest regarding some basic exercises?
    i'm pretty sure that Clinton Anderson has a DVD series specifically designed for cutting and/or roping.

    And as far if the cow turns on the horse, it's not a very common occurence. But most roping/cutting horses will get out of the way of a charging cow, if not, the rider better cue them to do so. The biggest thing is the horse's reaction. I've seen horses that are great for roping and stick right behind a cow, but as soon as that cow turns around and gets aggressive, the horse freaks out.

    Thanks, I'll look into what CA has to offer!

    And WOW, check out the pictures of the ad - SS.LV Lopkop - those of the third colt! His sire is the same as Snickers' - and the little guy is the exact copy of Snickers! Well how cool is that!

    Haha it's Snickerette! Or Snickerillo I want him (well I want Snickers but his baby brother might have to do unless you don't notice me sneaking your gorgeous boy off to Australia, Saranda ).

    Evil, I'm afraid that it won't be a good idea, because Snickers has a lot of drafts in his bloodlines, thus he is prone to growing a really thick coat and being intolerant to extreme heat - unless, of course, you live in colder parts of Australia - I'm not sure if you've got those over the globe. But I will sneak in his haynets and go with him to your place!

    His baby half-brother looks like a darling, I want him so badly! It's a shame I don't really have the money to buy and board him, and the time to train a greenie. But, if I had all of that, I'd be certain to buy him yesterday!

    They would be very cute together (if they weren't fighting over who is the most handsome lol).

    Heehee, cold for me is 15C - we don't get below freezing in Sydney so poor Snickers would be sweltering as soon as the sun peeked out! Might just have to move to Europe instead

    That sounds like a swell idea - and Latvia isn't too overpopulated, AND we have a vacancy in our barn - in fact, two vacancies - so you could come with horses! ;) But you'd have to get accustomed to temperatures well below -20C and -30C during winters.

    I am sure they'd fight a lot - Snickers and his little brother. Snickers was extremely nippy yesterday (he knows how to behave, but there are days when he forgets that, because all he has in mind then is PLAY, PLAY, PLAY! ) and I would have loved to give him a youngster to play with!
