Roped and held a cow this morning on Squiggy! The cow had a bad case of the porcupine quills so we went out and dropped a couple loops on her! Squiggy has roped anything and everything in the branding pen, but riding 90mph in the pasture is a whole different story! Lol I let my dad (who was riding his heading horse in the making and Squiggys half sister) attempt to head the cow twice and he was sucking real bad so I ran up and roped her like I've pasture roped my whole life! Squiggy was a champ, pulled the cow out of the brush so paps could heel her, tripped the cow and worked the rope so mom could get at the quills. I ccouldn't be more impressed with my girl!
Needless to say, my parents were impressed as well. :)
It just felt awesome, I wqs following my dad just letting Squiggy lope and when dad missed and was building a new loop, I just rode up, stoop up, three swings and perfecto!!!!! It also helped that the coe happened to be a longhorn so catching horns was easyyyyy!!
