I now have 2 roan horses I am riding.

This is Pink. He is the horse in my story. Never heard of any of his pedigree. I took him out today, and he thought that maybe, just maybe he could catch me off guard. He didn't, and after that he rode out pretty nice. 9 year old, and doesn't know anything, but I knew that going in.
And then early this spring, I told a gal from Iowa, that I would put some miles on her mare. SHE REALLY DOESN'T"T KNOW ANYTHING!! I moved cows with her a week ago. First time I had her outside. We got the job done, but it wasn't pretty.

I don't think she knew what a Porker was before.

She pretty much just stood there while I pulled them out, but I gave her the night off from school. I have no idea what her breeding is, and I am just trying to get her to the point that the owner can trail ride with her.

I find it interesting, that up until I turned 40, I never had a horse buck. They may have reared over backwards, cold jawed me, laid down, or just flat ducked out from under me. Now that I'm durn near 50, every horse I buy tries to buck. :oops: I'm sure some of has to do with how I ride. I'm not in their face all the time, and probably my weight has something to add. Used to be they never knew I was on em. Thought I was just a fly.
Anyhow, just an observation.

Prior and proper preparation prevents pee poor performance. :wink: :D














Even so, we seem to have problems too. Ours isn't bucking so much as
so lonesome they want to be with another horse. Boy, that's aggravating.

I didn't even know those people had horses they run a bunch of stock cows plus milk a bunch of dairy. They live sw of town so not my stomping grounds.
