Padre: Cowpony Working

My friend, Sabine (Friendly, Hairy Creatures blog) & I were talking and I was bragging up the cowponying skills of my reg'd Morgan heart horse, Padre. This photo is Padre (Rancher Ray in the saddle) @ calving time on the Coyote Flat Ranch, circa 2006.
Padre still loves to work cattle anytime he gets the chance, & YES, he still looks this good doing it!

    1. I think he's Gorgeous & Brilliant too Heather, but some people might think I'm a teensy bit biased. They'd be wrong though. ;-)

    1. Neighbour seemed impressed; I told him it's all Padre. Neighbour actually has no CLUE how often we come upon his cattle (usually only 1 or a pair at a time) out of his fences and we just go ahead & tuck them back inside. :-)

  5. Love it! He’s a looker!!

    Horses need jobs like that. We used to board at a facility that hosted all the cow events, so we had lots of cows to practice with. I found that all the horses loved it. It made them more confident.
