It's been awhile and I apologize for being so slow to update the condition of my new horse. It was a confirmed case of west nile. The blood that was sent in tested positive and after researching his past confirming that he had never been vaccinated left us with a confirmed case. To say his recovery has been anything short of a miracle would be an understatement! I started to ride him a little about a week ago and while using him Saturday when branding the fall calves actually roped a couple calves and drug them to the fire. Pretty amazing young horse in my opinion. This was the first time I had ever dallied onto anything and he took right to pullin.

Good deal!! I used my new one to drag a calf with, the day after we sent your cows home. He wasn't anywhere near as calm as yours, but we got the job done.

Sorry you and he had to go through that. You're both very lucky that he
survived. He's a cutie holding the rope. :D He looks pretty serious about
his job. Thanks for the update.

Thanks to some help I figured out how to make the pictures normal sized instead of itty bitty! Honestly never expected him to do this well this soon!! Only reason I even rode him into the brandin pen was because most of the help was ribbin me to get in there because they figured once I got one roped the rodeo would start! Earlier in the day a fella that was helpin did get launched off a horse that he used for brandins last spring. Only problem with their plan was my little horse just plum amazed em all when I went to ropin and he went to draggin no questions asked!! Me and the horse are both better now due to the experience.
