Kevin on the job!
We finished up the cow works for my neighbor Sunday. Was a lot of riding but we got it finished. There is a little bit to do sometime this week or next, moving a small bunch to their winter pasture, then that will be pretty much it. Took Kevin the cow dog with me one day and he did a great job. Helped me get a cow down off a cliff and saved me from getting, myself hurt or my horse hurt. So pretty proud of him.
Tim the Gray.
Got a chance to drag calfs with Tim the Gray. This is the first time I have ever had a chance to use him in the pens to drag calfs. I have roped a little outside with him and he was fine, so I was excited to see how he would do. When we first got in the pens he was a little concerned about the branding pot, the fire. It makes a pretty loud noise, with the propane fire burning, but it did not take long for him to forget about all that, once we roped our first calf. He did a great job. Was quiet around the cattle and did not get in a hurry to take the calfs to the fire for branding. I sure look forward to doing more of that with him down the road.
I get the chance to work with some pretty fair cowboys as well. Some are full time cowboys, others are guys that work in town or have their own little herd, and do what they can to help their neighbors. They always have a story to tell, and three always seems to be time on the trail for tellen em!
From time to time I have the oppertunity to take folks that I'm working with on some of these gathers. If you think you would be interested in getting involved, let me know and I will see what I can do to get you in there...
Have riding lessons this morning so I better get after it.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
