My horses could care less about their jolly ball. Got the one with the handle, and the one you hang up, that has the treat above it, that they can lick. They don't touch either one. But, the dogs love the jolly ball, so it wasn't wasted! Lol
Wow guys I had more fun on horseback today than I ever have before. I didn't just do turn back help but I got to work some cattle too. Also since Im learning to rope right now they let me rate a cow for a while. That was a rush to cut and to rate. Great day. About to go out to eat with my lovely bride. And then going back out to my co-workers place tomorrow to do it again.
WWarrior I agree, playing with cows is the best! I board at a cutting barn and was a turn back horse a while back when there was cutting practice. This summer if I have time I want to get more into sorting. My mare was a cutter about 10 years ago and she still gets excited around the cows.
Looking forward to hearing more about your cutting and roping! Posted via Mobile Device
OK been lurking for a while, insanely busy past 2 weeks both at work and with truck and trailer business! I found my truck, an 06 Ram 2500 59 diesel 4x4 AT tires SLT really clean on inside. Had to have the main computer control unit replaced, I guess that's why somebody sold the truck. Their loss my gain!
Adding to the productive Saturday theme, yesterday was awesome! Nothing like getting up getting into your new truck and knowing you're going to spend the whole day working with horses and stuff! Went to pick up the new little bumper pull trailer I bought, a CM Dakota, Put the first coat of varnish on the floor and got all the locks and stuff done. Then my friend helped me to learn how to back up a trailer.
Today I rode my mare put the second coat of varnish on the floor and started feeling guilty about not cleaning house haha.
Don't have to work tomorrow so I think I'll practice loading the horses and maybe driving them a little bit if I can snag one of the guys from the barn to help me. I've never had any issues with loading them in a trailer, but I've never been the one driving. Makes me nervous! Posted via Mobile Device
Good morning y'all! Sounds like everyone had a great weekend!!! I know I did:) My kids had a powerlifting meet on Saturday. My son got 1st and my daughter got 5th but it was her first time and we think she qualified for regionals. My son's last lift was 350 pounds which was more than my daughters total weight of the day! I was so proud of both of them
One of DH's friends from hidhscool was in town and we went out that night and had a blast. Then church Sunday morning and got to ride last night. My mare did awesome but I think she was worn out from being out in the pasture for a day and a half. DH finished cleaning stalls last night and his little filly never got up while he was in there cleaning, It was so cool!!!
