Holiday Training

During their time off of school, the girls have been training our 3 year old horses.  They have been enjoying the challenge.

Bringing the cows to our home place to get fed. They will settle in before they start calving in 5 weeks.

This is ‘Rock’ (Cashenin’ the Rocks).  He is 3 years old.  Last year we caught him and tied him up a bit.  This summer our middle daughter started to lunge him and work on the ground with him and then just before Christmas she got on him and had her sister lead her out.  He was exceptional and she is really making progress with him.

This is ‘Poco’ (Rocka Poco Fella).  He is 3 years old.  We sent him and his older brother to a rancher/trainer to get a month on last summer.  Now our oldest has been working with him these last few days.  He also is going to be amazing.

This is about on day number 3 when they opened up to pen #2 to have a little more space.

Their dad is chitter-chattering away in the background as he puts his chains on his tractor!  Now that he has passed on horse training to the girls, he can do these other jobs.
