Trails, I did a lot of question and answer on another forum with guys that run packstrings into the backcountry. After posting the pics there, two guys said the same thing about tacking your horse up on the hiline. And we do have porcupines here in NY. But it was also suggested to hang the tack to keep the leather and fleece away from field mice for the same reason.
QOS, not sure if I could sleep in a hammock, but it is something I am looking into. And thanks for the compliment on the Roan. She is 5, I got her when she was 3 and by far the best horse I have ever owned.
Reiterin, nice corrals, but more than that.....what a great looking horse!!! Is that yours?
Life is like a bronc ride. You gotta hang on, ride it out, and Let er buck!!!!!
