    Oh I agree, same here, but............... what I was asking was, when doing ground training, is it ok to just halter them up and go at it or is it good to join up in a round pen first?? Does it matter or help in the training??

    Awesome trailer by the way!!

    EDIT: Grow a pair = ummmmmmmmmm of those things that us women do not have as in wow he has big pair of ***** to pull that off.

    Thanks nvr2many for explaining "growing a pair". You did well,, I wasn't sure how I was going to do that in a "graceful" manner!!

    Stan, my students just did research projects on NZ and Australia! What beautiful country!!! Sad to say...but my students know more about your country than they do their own!! at least we got them excited about researching!!

    My cartoonist and coauthor live down under, hoping to make it there for a visit someday! . Bucket list!

    Dialect

    Stan made me think.....so many of us live in such different places, we have different dialect, who's in to share some of the most common from their area?

    For example, my friends wife is Australian and one day asked me to grab a 'tin' of chickpeas from the cupboard....I had no idea what a tin was....obviously it's a can now that she explained....

    Here we say.......Jeet yet? Did you redd up the house? Grab me a gumband will you?

    We eat SAMwiches, hoagies, sh*t on the shingle, and pork and sauerkraut for New Years!

    Your turn!

    I guess... I know why I like all of you in this ... slightly older thread. Tolerance... translation understanding... reading between the lines and just understanding that venting and sharing is OK. Instead of being stomped on we have our past experiences to share with others without shame. We are old enough to STOP and figure things out. We are old enough to appreciate others points of view and their good times and ... not so good ones.

    I'm lucky to have such ... lost for words. Thank you.

    Grow a Pair: Just wanted to put you on the spot and see how you got out of it. Well done.
    The song lord its hard to be humble, when i'm perfect in every way, comes to mind.

    Round pen, don't have one. Some of the trainers I have seen use one but only with green horses. Its a small paddock at my home, however with Bugs and being green, and inexperienced I have taken him to the neighbours arena as a safety feature for me, just incase he tossed me. The landing would be soft and if I get hooked up he can not go sailing off into the distance with me dangling on behind. He has never tried to throw me. So its back to riding out on his own now for experience. I can't wait for him to get some experience under his belt. He may not be much to look at but he has a good nature. We go well together rough and ready.

    Now just to cover the down under. Down under is considered as Australia so what could one refer to for NZ. Down under down under which may infer that we are cling ons.
