Here's a few pictures for those of you who were curious about our breaking to lead process on our colts. After they get tied to a post and lead to water and "mauled" by us brushing them and petting them, we turn them loose and practice catching them. Then they get lead behind our haysled and go feed the cows, calves, and the rest of our horses. They have to watch where they put their feet...way easier walking where the sled runners slide! We usually will lead them for 4 or 5 days and then turn them loose until next November. They will run all summer with our draft horses and learn how to navigate sage brush, timber, swamps, ditches, bogs, and badger holes.

Faster Horses, here is our yellow dog, Tator. He seems to have the same ears and head shape as your dog you had. And the course hair. Your dog had more white than Tator, but his full sister has more. He is the best dog!

He is heavier headed than our dog, but then he's a male and ours
was a female. There are differences between them, but there are
similarities as well. If you find out what he is, let us know. :D

Birrers said they forgot what there's were.....so they just bred to
any yellow and white dog that came along. They had one male that
Pete Birrer swore could count, and told us quite a story about it!
