Reminds me of the song Chestnut Mare, by The Byrds, “I’m going to catch that horse cause I can, and when I do I’ll give her my brand, and we’ll be friends for life, she’ll be just like a wife, I’m going to catch that horse cause I can”

Nicely done, albeit the horses are trained. Crappy trailer.

Used to take me three days and 2 hired cowboys to catch old Spot. Once caught he would easily load. Half Arab and half Oregon Desert Mustang. Colored like a Belgian with white hooves the farriers cussed. Wildest horse I ever owned, we came in 30 minutes ahead of 2nd place in an endurance ride in Missouri. It was a lesson in how to make 23 other horse people really mad. It was only a 15 miler. I turned around twice. The first time I saw two horses about a mile back, the 2nd time I saw no one.

Would anyone care to bet that he feeds them grain in that trailer on a regular basis?

Do you load a horse with a 105 mm shell from the breech?

I have never loaded a horse, but I have loped a mule.

That was excellent, and reminds me of the things I miss about Northern California.

There were times with my old feller that a two-by-four between the eyes and a meat hoist were awfully tempting...

A coworker years ago lost an eye loading his horse. A harness lead whipped back and hit him.

These kiwi horses responding to a couple of cracks of the bullwhip causes me to wonder how familiar with that whip they had to become in the past.

Wonderful. My daughter bought the Parreli DVDs. She trained her 6 month old guy with his lessons. He’s now 11 years old and is a sweetie.

Yep. We have a thirty year old three horse slant Sooner. Solid as a rock. Our two mares and Gypsy Vanner colt just hop right in, no issues. We do a mix of Buck Branaman and Monty Roberts style training.

Ours are eager to load, the figure they’re going barrel racing and enjoy their work.

Got one pony though, sheesh. Put me in the ER with a dislocated shoulder, loads if and when she bloody well feels like it. I bought this hellion for my then 8yo daughter. Daughter is now 22 and the pony is retired. The pony has tossed numerous supposed trainers on the keisters. My daughter races and trains both horses and riders but nobody can handle the hellion but her. Still runs her now and again just for grins. The old pony is still blistering fast.

I know a horse like that . . . at full gallop, he’s like a battleship cruising through waves. Always wanted to ride him, but he has a problem with the command, “whoa.”

The horses were easy to load with some hay in the nose of the trailer.

It was the bull who always gave us a hard time....especially when the neighbors cows were in heat. He didn’t care about hay at all!

We used to have cattle on two farms and used the same bull for both herds. He was good-natured for a bull and soon figured out that if the trailer showed up he could start thinking of that song “I got a brand new girl-friend ...”

Felt kind of bad when we loaded him for the last ride to the butcher’s.

He was very tasty.

Same here. Our bull’s last ride was to the butcher after breaking through a fence. He was delicious and fed 3 family’s. We sold our Scottish Highland herd after that but they are great tasting cattle!

yep - no problems that way.

On winter nights here in Colorado, my 4 come from pasture to the barn at the charge after one whistle. In summer, I have to go put the habeus grabbus on them or jump on the alpha and use her to mosey the other 3 along.

Thus I have come to the scientific conclusion that green grass causes temporary deafness in mares...

Maybe apples, carrots, or prunes. But some nags LOVE their grain (particularly with a little molasses).
