I loaded Pilgrim up in the trailer and went over to a neighbors to help trail his first calf heifers home. Just three of us horse back, but it wasn’t a real big bunch and the people who’s pasture we were trailing thru’ were out and moving their cattle out of the way.

The wind kept picking up and as we got closer to being done, the harder it blew. It was good to get done and out of the wind.

I found out Pilgrim doesn’t care for rattlesnakes buzzing underneath him, also. When one went off, so did he! He jumped and hogged a round a few jumps, I lost my glasses and had a little trouble to get to them located and keep him calm enough to pick them up and get back on. I sure was glad I stayed on thru’ his little storm. It would have been a shame if I had gotten bucked off and landed on the poor little snake and squished him. 😉
