bored waiting for my boy to get off the school bus :)


got to do some trimming and shoeing

I don't have an anvil, but this thing is very handy for shaping shoes

I really like these chinks from B Bar B in Blackfoot, Idaho. I like to
shoe in these more so than in my farrier chaps, as well as use them
for everything else.

in their new pen right where I'm shoeing

my trailer. I might be a little too far north for this type, but I love these
trailers. I hang plywood up in it in the winter.

views from where I'm shoeing. Not very good pictures.

My favorite hondas are the metal ones, but I have found I don't like using
the metal ones roping heels during branding. So I put this San Joaquin honda
on this rope and really liked it during branding this year.

Yep...nice trailer!!! Is it a gooseneck or neckover brand? We don't see many around here but they are quality trailers.

Thanks!

It's a Gooseneck brand trailer. I looked at the Neckovers and the WW's I believe it was, just a little.....but knew I wanted a Gooseneck brand. It's a little over kill right now and I get weird looks in line at the sale barn with such little loads at a time in it.....lol. Better explain: The first thing I learned in the beef business last year is.....March calving cows really means April through August or not at all.....lol. I'm trying to group every thing together, so I that is why I calve all over the grid and take have to take little loads to town. Anyway, yeah, I really like them....tough....can take abuse....lots of places to tie ropes and stuff to.....cool for the cattle hauling in summmer, can be made warm for winter,etc. I took the decals off to some day put my ranch decals on....just need to look like a better operation first....lol. Heck I was pulling a 1976 one that I bought not too long before this one, but sold it a few months after getting this one.

Cute kid, great photos you added. Like burnt said,
"keep 'em coming". Very enjoyable.

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Yeah, I'll post some more if people don't mind. I'm redoing every inch of our house...inside and out. To save money, I don't want to buy expensive pictures to hang up, so I have been taking our own pictures for us to hang up. It's taking longer than I thought to get to where I am haying with a team and have a pack mule, but I have some picture ideas for when I have that. Here's a sample of what I have been taking that I had handy....I have hundreds....lol.

Oh, and please don't judge too harshly.......lol. I'm just messing around with this. There are probably tons of flaws to them, but I think they will work for what I'm doing :D

Great shots.
I was told a long time ago The difference between art and photograhs is the courage to hang them on your wall.
Some I would hang on my wall and he is not my grandson LOL

Thanks, everyone! I appreciate it!

That's my little buddy! :D I feel very lucky to have only had to have a town job for the first few months of his life. He's been right with me every step of the way since.

I'll fetch a few more pictures and start a new thread or two and see what you all think of them. Might be a lot of sun set pictures....I hope that doesn't get old for every one?????

Thanks
