Well, Kid is on his way to being a rope horse! LOL!
The fiance spent about 20mins throwing the heel rope at him, at the saddle, at his feet etc. Roped the saddle and pulled Kid over a few steps each way, then roped one of his feet. Then I got on and threw the rope off of his back a couple of times. He didn't even move! Probably sick of having the roped hucked at his face, and he knew I can't rope to save my life so he wasn't worried about actually having to do anything!
Aside from his "I'm a stallion" retard moments, he's on his way to being the horse I once knew!
Waiting patiently for the calves to be born......we have about 18 cows and only 4 babies.......come on ladies!

Well, now I've rambled.

Sounds like you northern ladies had fun! Wish you all were a little bit closer! You guys going to The Mane Event? If so, let me know and we can meet up. I'm going with my mother in law and niece.

I was actually thinking about learning how to toss a larriette (sp?), obviously not to rope cattle since we gots no cows. Just to do something fun off of my little boy, maybe rope a few boarders now and then... Punishment for tossing their smoke butts on the ground lol.

So Courtney (my oinkers) has been having bleeding spots on her the past few days. I wasn't sure wtf it was until I caught the evil bich chickens pecking at her while she was trying to tuck herself in to her blankets. I kicked those hens out of her room like their arses were on fire.

They no longer is allowed to sleep in her room. I know once a chicken pecks a bloody spot they don't stop, I had to blue spray my lil oinkers. Now she looks like some fancy hybrid lmfao.

I seen Emma pecking hay off of the hair on her face, but she was always really gentle with it and Courtney liked it. Maybe the stoopid bird got it in her head that Courtney is MADE of alf alfa.

I love llamas, I love donkeys, I love mules... Long ears just make me feel warm and fuzzy inside, and I like critters off the beaten track.

I think I'll impregnate one of my mares later on in life with a standard or mammoth jack. Most likely my appy, not sure if she'll throw her colour but I'll get more insight into that when I have an awesome appy baby from her, and once I can track down her ex owners in regards to past foals she's had (she's had two). Even without spots, a mule baby would still be frickin awesome. They just make me laff and they are fantastic on the trails... I'd like to train to pack as I'd like to get more heavy into trail riding, which might someday require using packers.

I'd like to get back into Llamas one day, I was as a kid... volunteered at a rental farm where people would use them for camping out on the trails. They are fantastic animals to be around and to bond with, their wool is worth quite a bit more than sheep wool which would pay for itself at least, hopefully.


On a different note, my mare has an uber hard mouth and I get really tired of having to use brute strength to slow her down. It's not that she doesn't understand what I want, she's just evading it. I know this because in the arena she's not even half as bad, I can bring her down no prob. On the roads or trails its just constant fighting with her. Grrr. Other than that I LOVE riding her, she's got a fantastic smooth gait, will go anywhere, in any weather, and never has issues with feet tenderness.

I switched Kid to a twister wire gag bit and that helped him with his hard mouthed issues....not sure if that would help you?

Yeah a friend of mine has a twisted snaffle for her horse, she swears by it. I think I'll try a figure 8 bridle first, she does gape her mouth a lot even with the noseband cinched right up. I just hate how those bridles look, but if it works then smakin lol. I did put her in a d ring snaffle with the copper rollers and it has helped, but not as much as I was hoping.

(oh, smakin is my werd... it means good things like 'awesome'. It's the 'rad' of the new millenium lmfao)

Warning! Brag post!

Post  KiddingAround on Fri Apr 17, 2009 4:33 pm

Oh oh! Kid and I actually had a JOB today! The fiance asked me if I could go out, bring in our 40 or so heifers/steer calves, move them to another field, let the cows/calves out into the field where the heifers/steers are. So.....I put on my brave face, told Kid not to fail me, and saddled up.
*for those of you who don't know Kid, only a year ago he was PETRIFIED of cattle........sang that song "Cows with Guns" in his head. Swore they were going to eat him......if they were 3 fields away they were to close....you get the idea*
Now, me and my (hopfully) fearless steed strike out into the pasture, and of course the wind is blowing durn good today. Not an eye is batted. *phew*
Now, my darling longhorn heifers are nosy little missus'. They don't want to "round up".....nope, they want to investigate. So we spend a good 15mins or so convincing them to run AWAY from the horse. Finally, off they go. *insert small panic here* I am hoping Kiddo doesn't think he needs to RUN after them. A little prancing, then settles into a walk.
Get them out (WOO HOO!!!!!!! VICOTORY CHEER!!!!!!!!) Even went into a little alley with mud and about 5-6 calves bunched in there and moved them out. Open/Close a bunch of gates, and head into the cow pen. Now this I am not to worried about. We have 22 cows, and 4 calves on the ground now, and they are good old girls. Move them out, all but one little calf. She lost sight of mamma around the corner, and decided that Kid could be her mamma. Kid was giving her the "Uhhh, you are one small cow.....maybe I should be scared " look, when Red Mamma came back to fetch her. Close the gate and we are DONE! cheers
End of story. I let him off after that. Wind, nosy running cows, calves who lose their mamma, and my mare whinnying in panic cause I took her boyfriend away, and NO explosions!
Finally thinking I'm not scared of him anymore!

Ah yes. Kid still chews on it when he has decided that he is done, but a lot more responsive. Good luck!

So I got asked to judge Pony Club Regionals! The only thing that sucks is that it's the same weekend as the EAADA Gold Rush CDI**, but I figure that's 4 days long and my horse can take Saturday off showing Razz Razz It's at Beaumont Ag grounds and should be super fun, I'm really excited to go buy a bunch of fun stickers so I can put them on all the tests!!!
Now I just need to get some shadow judging in at earlier shows so I am a little bit more confident in my abilities. I figure I can also "judge" my friends tests from the stands and then steal their test sheets to see how close I was to the real judge's score.
