horses are like potato chips right?

Cocaine and I
In the morning I loaded the horses up and headed to North Carolina for a little jackpot shoot.. and I brought Charly... we had a time..... I'm beginning to just NOT like her at all, I'd shoot 2 balloons and she'd bolt and not turn.. and I had to man handle her... it's either my fault for putting her aside.. or she just sucks... I'm not sure which one is which....  While we were there... I saw this guy from georgia who bought for his son.. who has not ridden the horse but 4 times.... well they had a big blow up in the arena...  and when everything was said and done, he was pissed at his horse to... (can you tell where I'm going with this?)
Well, the show was over and it was time to go head back to the ranch and Jim and his girlfriend were coming back to the ranch to stay the night, because he wanted two buy two babies and wanted to pic them out...   Sunday morning we all wake up, I made biscuits and gravy, sausage, bacon and eggs.... we all ate a big breakfast and headed out to breeding pasture..
beautiful mares... :)

Jim picked out his two babies and we got that settled.. and he was off to go back to Georgia.... and he went into the barn to get his horse... well his son's horse... and he started explaining how he wasn't going to shoot off of him, etc.. and he didn't like him and wanted to sell him... and I looked at him, and he told him to price him.. and he did.... and I said... well let me borrow your horse...
he threw the lead rope at me and kissed me on the forehead and said see you later.....
So I'm standing there with the rope staring at the own grandson of Streakin Six....  Holy crap.... So I may or may not have just bought another horse.... lol... 
I put him out in the pasture.. and went and got Maggie....  I'm not sure what the heck I was thinking..
well,  Dad got his horse pokey out... I thought about riding the new horse but, I decided that since Maggie was the only horse with cow sense.. that I'd ride her.. we sorted out all these cows to take to the sale, and a few to go to the packin' place and one to slaughter...  Maggie was a rock star.. she even bit a cow that I was trying to move.. it was funny... 

After we got that all sorted out and finished, we rode back the long way to the house.

We got all the horses untacked and put back up, and I went out to try out the Streakin Six horse.....
I was pretty impressed after I asked him to turn and he turned on a dime gave me back 9 cents and I almost got un-assed out of the saddle...  I was like whoa...
Cocaine resting after shorting some cows...
I'm going to put him in a english saddle and see if he'll jump... he's supposed to have a lot of thoroughbred in him, so, we shall see... I'm liking him but I want to make sure he's going to be the all around I want....


Maggie and I at Worlds!

this would be titled me screaming "heeyah" or "wooohoooo Maggie" hahaha
