Skippy (Hayes Brothers, close to us here, raise these line bred Skipper W horses). Day before yesterday he bucked so hard tied to the trailer, I made the cowboy put him up and pick another colt to ride ( it didn’t help much as that colt bucked at least a dozen times that day). Today he was an angel and a useful one at that. Pretty good for a 4 year old: rope, get down, and tie off, like he had being doing it all his life.
And one of our other daughters. We have three of our own and 2 we think of as ours. This one is headed to Australia for a few years to be with her new husband. We’re going to miss her a lot. What a cheerful kid, and starting to make a pretty good hand besides. I have to really admire her hutzpa. Her yellow mare that she rides is a real cowboy’s horse: big, strong, capable and liable to buck you off. But our girl loves her and we love them both.
