Here are a few more pics. Excuse the two with the camera on my head, not very flattering I know. The roan is the one I borrowed, and the sorrel gelding is my old man.

I still think it's great that more people are doing cattle work. But, I don't want anyone to think that the pace and handling techniques in a sorting or penning competition are what happens on a ranch.

At my place, we have a pact where those of us who own it and/or run cattle on it, agree that it's a good day and a sign of a job well done, if we can hear birds or leaves rustling during corral work. Extremely little, to no, dust or moo-ing at the corrals.

Sure, there are times when we have to get after a recalcitrant cow or bull, but those times are very rare. All of my friends, and most of my acquaintances, work theirs in the same way.

I want to stress that I think the popularity of penning and sorting competitions is a good thing. Just, if you get to a ranch, hang behind the owner or foreman and don't run pounds off his beef.

LOL, boots, this quote works for a lot of things, cow work included

"Slow is smooth, smooth is fast"

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I'd REALLY love to try Campdrafting one of these days. I don't know much about sorting but it looks quite similar.

Unfortunately I don't have any access to cows!

I worked for a guy who would caution the crew with "We're in a hurry today, so let's go slow."

Very cool! I don't know much about the Western disciplines, so it's really fun to look at pics like this.
