Again not a big deal. Most show jumpers I know never jump anything as large as some of the cowboys I have seen jump natural obstetrical out on the open range.

One thing? My finished horses will spin a post hole in the ground with the touch of a knee, they will slide to a stop if I pick up my reins and say whoa, they rate a calf, and when I get it roped, I'll step off and doctor and they stand there patiently, and I can click at them and they will back up to keep a rope tight, or they will step forward so I can get some slack, and I'm not even touching the horse! If you ask me, that's something. Along will all the other work I can get done with them... They will effortlessly change leads, I can rope a big bull and drag them into a trailer if I have too.

NRH, your horses are so intelligent they're doing obstetrical courses while cutting cattle? Dayum!

I just have regular horses. None of mine will ever be doctors!

(Sorry, had to do it. That typo is hilarious.)

People who have never had to do this with a horse just have no clue. Getting a horse to even want to work a cow is something that is bred into them. Again something people know very little about.

Ok not sure what you are talking about.

If you are talking about a reined cow horse class? Sure. Obstetrical coarse with cattle.

Sadly, that is very very true. I guess I'm very fortunate just being able to have cattle to work horses on..

No dear, obstetrics is what a gynecologist does. I think you meant obstacle.

Just poking a little fun because I found the typo amusing.

Ya I wish I had more access to cattle. The cost of keeping a large herd of cattle around here is too high. I would have to change them out ever few months. So I use others cattle and take advantage to reined cow horses shows and practices to work the horses on when needed. Best part is that my horses are so well trained that is it not hard to go and show a reined cow horse class with very little cattle practice.

I gotta work with the stinky critters every day.. We have been night calving right now. I cuss them almost every second of the day, but I wouldn't have it any other way.. Horses, cattle and dogs go together and that won't ever change :)
