Fun

Went up the other afternoon and helped a friend and neighbor gather his cattle up close for shipping. Then we returned yesterday morning and sorted calves from cows and sorted off anything he wanted to keep and wean, loaded the calves and came home.

Fr Tyler came out a little before noon and after lunch he and I took Buck out, looking for grouse. Buck did pretty good, for a dog who has never hunted before. He found it strange that I didn’t want him to go work cows and just wanted him to run around up ahead of us, but not too far, and seemed puzzled, as he couldn’t see any livestock! We did finally kick a few out of a shelterbelt and missed on a shot by Fr Tyler. I was too slow and the shot was gone before I could take it. Oh well, we had a good visit and we didn’t have to clean any birds this way. Besides, I like to see these grouse running around here. Well, until one blows out of cover, under my colts belly! They sure can get things moving, then!

It was a nice day and the wind did pickup later in the day. Supposed to be in the 40’s today and then in the 50’s for the next few days. Guess I better get out there and get to messing with the Halflinger fillies!

By the way, I got a nice present in the mail yesterday. A knife sent to me by Connie over at  Far Side.  http://farsideoffifty.blogspot.com/

Thanks Connie! Hopefully I will get a photo of it and post it on here!

  1. Sounds like a good day. A man can never really have too many knives. I picked up a belt sander a little while back and been trying to learn to use it to put a convex (Moran) edge on a blade. It is going to take some more practice still though.

  2. Loved to see some of your halfflingers. My husband learned to pull when we were first married -then the boys got older and wanted to rodeo\rope so we sold the draft horses and went to that for a spell. He would love to get back into that – I like the halfflingers because I believe you can ride them under saddle too……..right? Also, the belgium mare we had was a sweetheart but I don’t know………just the size of her made me nervous to handle her on the ground. And that was when I was 20 years younger and could move much quicker than I do now LOL!

    1. Stephanie, do a search of this site, maybe just photo’s. There are lots of pictures of them on here. And I have ridden the older mare in the round pen, but they are pretty flat backed and real wide and i don’t like getting spread out like that. I make my saddles that way, so they are real narrow between the legs.
