Bah ha ha! You know it's bad when the barrel racers think your horse is goofy! ;) I shouldn't laugh, Zorro was the same way when he was a pickup horse

Exactly what I thought. My partner was riding a big Two Eyed Jack gelding that knew his job, but nothing else. He couldn't lope a circle or hardly Even turn. Wouldn't back up a step unless there was bucking horse behind him. But he knew when the whistle sounded to blow in there and get against a bronc. Boy we were a pair

LOL! Good times!
That's why they cut Zorro out, he wouldn't really get in on a bronc. Tow bulls all day, but didn't have the nuts to get in on the horses...and he started bucking everyone off. That's how we ended up with so cheap and hubby got along with him.
You still picking-up and wild cow chasin'?

I remember you (i think it was you) saying your husband could always find good things about any horse. I'm pretty much the same way. When I have one that doesn't like the broncs, no big deal. Can't really blame them for not wanting to bang and bump on a horse that's honking and bawling and kicking at ya. Some people will just sell em but I just figure there's plenty of stuff they can do, always can use a cowy stock horse for pushin timed event cattle and bulls.

A local contractor had a gelding he bucked in bb, then he'd pick up SB with him and rope both ends and tie-down calves too.

But no I hadn't been doing any pickupin' at all. I'm going to get back into it though, or work some bull ridins or something. Funny when I was younger and did stuff cheap I had people callin with cows to catch and rodeos they wanted worked, but now that I'm older and ask to be payed better for the risk, fuel, and time involved, there's not much demand! Heehee

I love that!!!! Buck him out in the BB, pickup SB and rope on him...that is bad as$!!!!


Yep, that was me talking about hubby. Matter of fact we was just talking about it.
"cowboy broke horses". Drives me nuts that Zorro lopes on the left lead all the time. He's okay with it, figures he's 13 years old, cowboy broke, pickup pony, and team roped to death. And I go pickin' a fight over the right lead....LOL! Even my ill-broke gray gelding picks up the lead I ask for..geez!

Well I hope you get to go do some! I know hubby misses picking up. If it paid better, like you said, it would be a no-brainer! It sure is fun crashing into one!
Although we might go to CA for a few days to do a clean up gather next week on some yearlings that pays decent...who doesn't want to go to CA in the spring/winter when the wind is blowing in NV????
