Love the pics soapweed...can I come live with you for a couple weeks so I can take pictures??? (joking) Your pictures are all so neat. Alot of different views and things in them. I'm forever snappin pictures but have wondered if they are starting to look the same. Sometimes I feel like I'm covering ground that I've already covered. But I keep on snappin away, on the off chance that I run across somethin perdy, or interestin.
I've added a few to my website if ya wanna take a look. Some new one's in both albums

Nice pictures, lilly. Our old slow dial-up doesn't seem to cooperate in downloading your enlarged pictures, but they look good in the small size. Ranching in different areas has a lot in common, and yet is not much alike in other ways. One thing about taking care of cows, there is a lot of variety to each day's activities.

Keep taking pictures. They are interesting.

excellent pix, soapweed and lilly!!!! Gonna have to get me some "updated" computer components so I may post a few....had some taken of the new pups on a disposable 35 mm camera and the two littlest ones lost the camera..probably in the sandbox :shock:
anyway....sure was glad the 16 year old daughter was not awake and looking over my shoulder when i was looking at these pictures as i am sure she would have been simply slobbering all over herself over those good looking boys!! :wink: :wink:

Really good pictures, lilly. Love the one of the cabin in the mountains. Is that in Texas?

On my personal photobuckets web-page, when I hit "browse" to look through my photos, there are different boxes to click on for whichever size is wanted. One of the options is "best for web", and it sure downloads faster. The finished size is the one that comes up when I post them on Ranchers.Net.

P.S. Thanks for pointing out my "back to the future mistake". That shirt was prophetic because I sure did put in July 19, 2995. Did edit and correct it this morning.

GOTTA LOVE THOSE PICTURES!!

I'll bet that cabin in the mountains is not in Texas...

And Soapweed, is your Yellowstone horse taught to ground tie? Appears so in the picture. I have only been around a couple of horses that could be ground-tied. It is a pretty handy thing, but is just about a 'lost art.'

The last 6 pictures on Soapweeds post didn't download for me, and the last 5 on jersy lily's didn't. There is a small box with a red x in it. What happened?

Did you try right clicking on the small red box and then clickinng on "show picture"?
PS.. Teaching a horse to ground tie only takes about 20 minutes of your life if done correctly (on most horses)

Silver, would you share with us how you teach a horse to ground tie?

One horse I knew of, a sorrel mare; you could drive a herd of horses past her and she wouldn't leave. She might move her butt around to be able to see, but her head and the reins never moved. It truly was like she was tied to something.

Ground tying is one of the first things I now teach when doing groundwork. I start by holding the horse right at the halter snap with my left hand, and hold the halter shank in my right. Slowly raising my hand towards the horses shoulder to move her away. If she doesn't move off, start swinging the end of the shank, if this doesn't get her to move you may have to strike her lightly with it. As she moves away you should be pivoting on your left foot, controlling things with your left hand on the halter snap. The idea is to get the horse to move across at the hips, because this is hard work for them. In no time you will be able to controll the speed of the turn with the positioning of your right hand, it will be like there is a bubble between your hand and the horses shoulder. Once this is working for you, you need to make a definate "release". I pivot away and back on my left foot, say "whoa" or some such, and make a big deal of throwing the halter shank on the ground. At this point the horse should be quite happy to stay right where she is, so walk past her shoulder to her rear, and around behind (this direction seems to work the best, they are less likely to follow you). Walk away and move off, turn your back to the horse. After a couple of minutes you kinda hope they move off (they will eventually), and when you do you catch them right away and repeat the whole performance. Pretty soon they're dang happy to stay right where you put them. It makes the right choice easy and the wrong choice hard.
The exercise is also good for teaching them to lead past you, which is a must for going through gates and loading into trailers.
The whole circiling exercise then becomes the only 'discipline' my horse gets on the ground, so when they get it, they know to start thinking of a different choice of actions that will save them from that dang circling.
I didn't invent this method, but I sure like it.
