We took a little break. During a short stop, someone's horse went off bucking and tossed the guy, he cracked some ribs! They caught his horse and he INSISTED on riding back to camp (although they got him to ride a different horse). So while that was going on, we all just relaxed in some shade.
Harley's new saddle is SUPER COMFY!!!

Very cool. Ya'll look like naturals at cow herding. LOL. We have about 600 head of yearlings that we will be gathering and shipping out sometime next month, ya'll are welcome to join us. We will need all the help we can get, they are kinda wild. :D
