One more ride!
Well, It’s time. Charlie and I have had a good time together but it was time for him to go home. Every horse I work with changes me a little. I learn tons from everyone of them and am grateful for their patients and understanding. Charlie has been that kind of horse as well. I know that his family will be glad to have him back in the pen with them and I wish them all the best.
I wish I could have had a little time with his mom and dad before he went home, but folks have to make a living and that’s the case with Anthony and Laurie, no fault of theirs or anyone else. They both have lots of experience with horses and I know they will get along just fine with him, and I’m always here if they should need me.
Anthony and his wife, came out last weekend for a little ride on the ranch with Charlie and me, before they headed back for home. We had a great time and they, Anthony and Laurie, got a chance to see their boy under saddle. Anthony brought a couple of mules and a horse to ride. Anthony does a lot of guided hunts in our area and knows this country well and can’t wait to get Charlie in the mix. I look forward to pictures of them together in the wilderness areas and will do my best to keep all of you up to date on Charlie’s great adventure.
There is still plenty to do on the ranch. I have another horse coming in around the first week in Feb. so we are getting pretty excited about that. Spring is coming soon and we will get started on putting together some clinics and demos around our country, in hopes of showing folks what we can do to help them with their horses and what we can offer to help them become better horseman.
I have not heard anything from the ladies doing research on the McEvers Ranch for their up coming book, but as I get any info I will pass it on. I know there are several folks out there that are interested, just like me, in what they find.
Kathy and I have developed a new product that we hope you folks will check out. It is Herb’s Cowboy Hand Bar. It is a lotion bar that is really helping folks with weathered hands. I use it around here and it has worked great from me. It is a lotion bar that looks like a bar of soap but it’s not, but works better then most lotions on the market and is easy to take with you on a pack trip or a trip to grandma’s house. It’s easy to use and not greasy. Some of you have it already and we are getting great feed back. The website is under construction right now, but we will have it finished soon. The name of the website and company name is Herb’s Body Shop. www.herbsbodyshop.com . So stop by and give it a try.
It’s raining right now and that feels good. I have riding students that are going to be disappointed, again, because of the weather.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
