Cowboy Up!

We’re getting saddled up for branding season.

Patrick caught Gray and led him out of the meadow and up to the barn and corral.

Unfortunately the young Bay horse isn’t invited. He’s not even half-broke so he gets to stay in the meadow. His time will come but for now, Patrick can only focus on one horse. He ran and bucked up and down the fence line the rest of the evening. He’s fine now, but the first couple of hours he was full of anxiety.

In the evenings, Patrick saddles Gray up and encourages patience and obedience while running circles. He took a spin around the meadow with him the other day and he did surprisingly well for not being ridden all winter.
Tighten the cinch and git yer spurs on…here we go!

    oh yeah, the first spring rides! I have been ‘spilt’ a time or two myself when the cows and calves bust through the gate and the fresh spring horse goes nuts! Brandin’ time is fun – a special time; and the season opener for a summer of lots of saddle time. I miss it so! muchas anos, but now my saddle time is much different – la jungla, and not too many cows. have fun! and stay in the saddle 🙂
