Just thought that I would start a journal to kinda document my journey as I work toward getting horses trained for my customers. I started my documentary in this thread (Day 1.... The saddle. :D) but decided to continue it here. The little Arab named Do-si-do from the linked thread is getting ready to go back home. I have a mare that I got from a member here that I am going to get started on tomorrow, now that I have some time and we're not receiving more cattle until sometime next week. Also, I have got 3 horses coming from Kansas sometime next week. I am about to have my plate full. 2 of the Kansas horses are from an old friend that my Dad used to train horses for and I just found out today that the horses they are bringing me are out of a full sister of the horse I grew up on. Vv That is Buck. He was my faithful mount for years.
They also want to give me a horse of the same breeding. He is broke and I think he is 6 years old but his feet are not good enough to withstand working all day every day on concrete and rocks like they do in the feedlots that these folks own. But, no harder than he will get used here and no more perilous than most of our ground is, I bet he will be fine here. Plus, a lot of our horses are getting older and it is always a good thing to have another broke horse just hanging around in case someone bows a tendon or bruises a foot.
Anyway, I'll stop rambling now that I have my journal started and I will be back with periodic updates.
