Back to School

There's a mistaken rumor that "real cowboys" never hold on the the saddle horn. That's not true. Smart cowboys use whatever tools are available to stay safe - especially when training a green horse.
I saw this cowboy at a calf working several Springs back, and he was patiently walking his horse back and forth through the water. Evidently the animal had been initially reluctant to cross it, so he was encouraged to get his feet wet for the next 15 minutes. Back and forth. And since the horse was green, the cowboy held on securely - knowing that even the calmest horse sometimes decides to pitch a fit when asked to do something unfamiliar...
Psalm 37:3
Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

I've never had to break any of our horses. I've got one that will need to start this year. It won't be ME doing the breaking though!!!
