greetings

I am a misplaced "buckaroo" from the ION (Idaho, Oregon, Nevada) country, temporarily ensconced in the Arkansas/Oklahoma country visiting family for a couple of months, against my wishes.

I am a professional working cowboy and horse trainer. I specialize in 3 areas: starting colts, fixing problem horses, and making reined cow horses. I also love making teams of driving horses, and have started a lot of mules as well. IN addition to the usual hobbies of reading, writing, etc, I enjoy tooling leather to make buckaroo gear, and ranch roping with a long rope and reata with a mulehide wrapped horn. ( I AM NOT A TEAM ROPER!)

Love the username! The first thing I pictures was some guy punching a cow, LOL!

Welcome to the board! I share two of your three passions, starting horses, and fixing "problem" horses/owners =) You sound like a great, well rounded guy, and a good addition to the community here!

Can't wait to hear more about you! =)

Yes, there are so young ones. It's nice that they have such an opporturnity to learn.
I asked your age because of your signature. I thought you were either wise and experienced, or young and insightful.

I'm old, but not wise, and was never insightful when I was young. I just get tired of hearing "natural horsemanship this" "natural horsemanship that......" People seem to forget that the Dorrance brothers, and Ray Hunt, and Pat Parelli, and Brannaman, etc....all of them were cowboys and buckaroos before they were "Natural Horsemen."

CowPuncher,
Not every body is a youngster on here, and I'm old enough to probably be your Dad. And not everybody rides show horses like many of the photos on this website dipict.

I'm from Utah ( Close enough to ION ) I don't spend much time around cows. But I do ride a lot in the mountains of Utah & Wyoming . Take a look over in the Horse Pictures forum under the Thread titled "Rough Ride" to see some of the country I ride.

Enjoy your stay in the mid west.

Painted Horse,,,,I love that Utah country. I cowboyed south of Vernal for a while and started colts for a QH breeder in Vernal for a while, and have some friends that live in Ogden.
What part of UT are you in? I'm hoping to return out thataway this spring myself.

I live 20 minutes north of SLC. I have a good friend who moved out to Roosevelt. I join him several times each year to ride in someplace. Usually stay a night or two, fish and come home.

I hunt a lot South of Duchsene. So I ride a lot over in that country.

Look familar? I mean the country not the 8 bulls.



I had father of a good friend. ( I guess they were 3rd cousins) who sold his farm here and bought a cow/calf ranch over in eastern Oregon. His kids that were my age run the local vet business. So I see them pretty often, but I haven't seen much of their parents since they moved. Land has just gotten too expensive to let animals stand on here.
