You know your horse will have amazing adventures when...

...you spend a whole hour walking as much of the 40 acre pasture as you can handle, looking for him.

I went out to feed him (F- YES to finding a new location) today and I whistled, hollard, listened, and walked to no avail. Sneaky butthead. Not a snort or whinny. I guess he'll have to wait until the morning.

Guys, I need a mount to find my mount.

For sure!

I usually grain mine in the morning so they come up and I can give them the once over. The other weekend we needed to get going before daylight to friends to help work pairs. Well they must of seen the truck getting hooked to the trailer because there was an awful lot of snorting, running and bucking going on before we got one caught. They are just wise to being caught before daylight, it means its time to go to work....LOL! Who says horses aren't smart?

Definitely not any equestrians.

So far Scotch hasn't ran from me when I fetched him to work, but I'm knocking on wood anyway.

I have to go through this on many summer days. My lease horse is out on 40 , hilly, treed acres. It can sometimes take 45 minutes to find him and get him back up the hill to the barn. But, here there is a herd of about 12, so if you spot one, the others are bound to be nearby. Funny how 12 horses can blend into the scenery. It's like Where's Waldo at times.

I am convinced that routines are not always the best, especially when trying to out smart a horse.

Routine for feeding alone = good. Routine for riding = a wise horse.

LOL! No doubt!
We had a herd of buckskins, whick look like dirt and clay, grays, that look like weatherd sage brush and black and white paints, which blend with all the above....
husband would send me to gather horses, it would take forever!

Finally they let me take a day off to get eyeglasses....wrangling horses didn't take quite as long. I still say it isn't easy! LOL
