    That's a cute saying, but it won't keep you on the payroll of a ranch, because the rest of it goes, "And the rancher paying the bills is going to bottom line who is better for his rangeland and cows."

    I never said, nor did that quote imply there was a compromise in stockmanship...

    Cool. Cause I don't care if a hand fancies himself the Easter Bunny. If he doesn't put my grass and cows first, he'll be playing somewhere else.

    The early bridlemen were some of the hardest working cowhands. I have a book about Henry Miller of the Miller and Lux ranch in California. The Miller and Lux Ranch had some pretty incredible hands come out of that outfit. I was rereading the book last week and came upon a story I will paraphrase, Henry Miller visited one of the outfits on his large ranch. The hands were doctoring cattle, he watched as one man flipped a cow (stretched it quickly, making the cow go airborne and land on its side) he immediately fired the man on the spot The cattle baron then insisted that all the cows be laid down correctly if the men wanted to keep there job on his ranch.

    The name of the horse in this video is too ironic not to share... This is this particular horses second time "in the bridle" she is by no means finished, but if Jeff keeps her around long enough I think she will turn out to be a pretty good "straight up bridle horse"

    As an aside, boots, the classical music community has had a slobbering love affair with 16th & 17th century guitar music and guitar transcriptions (of other periods) for about a decade, now.

    Turn on your local classical music station ( or 75 & 76 on Sirius ) and slobber away!

    At the risk of highjacking this thread... I was picturing drool in the orchestra pit!

    We don't have a classical music station here, except when NPR features it.
