Ok, I have to quit letting things get away from me. It's just too much to get into one post. So where to start? I think a nice list will get us there. I started writing a post about how Rev's contract is getting renewed and he is going for some roping/cow-horse training. So I will … Continue reading Y’all I Don’t Even Know Where to Start…
I worked Rev a little yesterday. More mental than physical. His breeding season is coming to a close and today he helped me water my garden and other plants.

I have plans to take some pics tomorrow. Now for the happenings of the last few days. I would also like to point out … Continue reading Catch Up!
Rev finally did a little work. Not much but we have to start somewhere. This is his second time on a lunge line instead of "free" in the round pen, so it was interesting. He actually did really well.
