Horse Picture------------

We drove out to Brown Spring this week and through the glasses saw over a hundred head of mustangs scattered around the flats. However we couldn't get within a mile of any of the bands. Soooo in an effort to entertain those who have an appreciation for horse flesh, I found these pictures that I though some might like better than nothing.

My first horse, named Dandy in about 1940. He was my wheels for the first ten years of riding horses.
Image

My Dad in Law gave me this horse shortly after we were married in 1957.

The mare, Wendy I owned with a friend and I raised the colt, Silk.

I really wanted a good Thoroughbred cow horse, but I didn't ever find one.

My friend and Parker hunting cows in The Circle Cliffs, Southern Utah. Ho55's country.

This old man guiding a bunch of dudes into Horse Canyon on Parker, years ago.

My dream cow horse, Ol Blue. Double bred Hancock. Scared of a cow for about a year.

Hunting mustangs in the rain, forgot my slicker.

Image

The best I could do, when there were no trees around.
Image

Image

Ol Blue turned into a joy to ride. He has the distinction of being my last ride. Love him like a brother.

Old Paint was pretty splashy :D

We do pretty good if we get one horse like old Blue. :cowboy:

Some color there for sure! Would that first paint be a piebald or a skewbald?
Loved looking at the pictures, especially seeing the how the colts looked when they grew up.
I remember you went to visit Blue not long ago, but he wasn't there and you were sad.
I'm glad he turned into such a good one. Double bred Hancock....really good....or lethal. :D



Can I say "MORE, MORE, MORE, PLEASE?"

They all are sure worth looking at. But the blue horse sure knows how to pose for the camera. Do you have some enlarged copies of him hanging in front of your favorite chair?

Our current favorite photo is hanging beside the TV, and both of us say we look at that more than at the screen! It is our three year old great grand daughter. We need one of her sister to put beside it. One of these days I'll get to it.

Thought we had quite a few paintings or photo's featuring or including horses in them in our living room, so did a count. Horses are in 20 out of 33 hanging on our walls in here! Family members or ranch scenes in the rest. It is a big room, but most people would probably think it is 'too busy' and would look better with fewer. Just can't part with them, yet.

I sure don't know piebald from skewbald. But I do know that ol paint mare was as fine an animal as I ever rode. I just wish I had had her about thirty years later, when I had half a brain. We did a lot of fun things together and had some terrible wrecks together. Like they say, ya never miss a good think until its gone.

My wife is the only thing that keeps me from covering the whole house with horse pictures. I have the silhouette and the last picture, hanging on the will in my man cave. I've been trying to pick one to "super size" but have too many to choose just one.

Rarely do I have a horse that I trust enough to drop the reins, and step off 30 feet to take a pic of em.........My horse would think that was the perfect time to go to the barn.............
always enjoy your pics Mustang..

I've been lucky enough to be able to call the last three horses Iv'e had to me, the pasture wasn't too big. When we've been out alone it worked OK, but when other riders were around, on one occasion I paid for my sins. :x :x

I was lucky enough that one of the other riders caught the "home sick sucker." :-) :-)
