    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.

    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.
