Good job! I hate it when you stand up after a wreck and realize you're bleeding, bent or broken. A horse bucked me off last fall at a roping and when I went to climb back on one of my fingers was dislocated. I might have waited but the finger was on my roping hand so I was out anyway.
I would rather brand than just about anything but unfortunately the branding is done here. It sure seems like the training portion of the horse market is picking up. I have 5 horses scheduled for june and 4 this month. If this keeps up neither one of us will have to get a real job! My dad told me that if I learned how to shoe a horse and ride a colt I would never starve and so far he's been right.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
