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!)
Welcome! How old are you out of sheer curiousity? (I hope you don't mind me asking..)
Welcome to the community, cowpuncher!
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!
Cant wait to hear more about you! =)
I asked your age because of your signature. I thought you were either wise and experienced, or young and insightful. :wink:
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.
