I totally agree Allison. The man that I worked for as a teenager did the same. We used a "bell mare" in the mountains. Picket the bell mare, and you could turn the mules and horses loose in a meadow.
Have to say doing that in a packed arena that is pretty impressive!
If I ever went out of country to strictly cowboy my first choice has always been Argentina. They are amazing for their stockmanship. They also are the finest when it comes to rawhide braiding, beautiful work.
I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.
