Video of working yearling cattle (with dogs and horses)

I just was playing with my new camcorder the other day while we were out going through our yearling cattle and thought I would share some video of the dogs and us working with the cattle. I want to apologize in advance as you will probably be on this thread forever. There are several vids.

Here are some videos of the dogs. A couple of them are still learning as this is their first summer so they don't have just a whole lot of handle yet (cheating, no horses here but easier to put them all on one post).





And here is a vid of Dad on Pokey playing around at some ranch cutting. I am jealous, Pokey is a much better cow horse than Dobe is.

Here is Dobe and I playing around some. He is more aggressive than other horses and keeps getting closer and closer as we work them. That in turn, freaks the cattle out and they start to run. I know I need to work on his stops/turnarounds. I haven't done much except piddle around with him in a long time.

And here is one of me and Dobe walking to count some cattle. I let them go so that the dogs could bring them back.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thank you both. Bloodhoundmom, you are more than welcome to come here though we are fixing to ship the cattle out sometime in August. But be prepared to spend all day in the saddle............literally. That was a short day and we started about 10 am and finished at almost 5 pm. LOL.
