Judith and I decided to send H up to Cody Crow No Where But Up Performance Horses in August because H, Mr. Cowy Son of Gun, needed more access to cows.
H started living in the barn, which he likes because he gets to talk to everyone that walks by. But, he has a high play drive and a lot of energy (Labrador puppy on crack, I am told), so he also spends a lot of time outside, trying to mess with his neighbors.
Here, he was always out with bossy herd leaders and I think it kept his personality under wraps a bit!
Training went well, and Cody gave the thumbs up to taking H to Ft. Worth to the Appaloosa World in jr. working cow horse. And what the heck, while we are there, ranch riding, ranch rail, ranch trail, too. We did not put him in reining or ranch reining, but he will be good at those in the future!
Cody and H had a really nice ride in the cow horse! H’s spins and stops have really come on under Cody’s tutelage, and down the fence H was never out of position. It was very exciting!
