    Youngest sent me this shot of him moving bulls. He knows how to put words on his pics somehow. Don't know why he's complaining about cold, don't see any snow on the ground and the bulls' tails ain't blowin' sideways?



    Gotta make it worse than it is so the girls feel sorry for you.

  2. Practice pen pickup '86-87 thereabouts. Yella was a soured saddle bronc that came out of some amateur stock contractors pen. So they thought he'd make a calf rope horse!!!? He showed up and the boss said "he's yours,fix him" .After quite a while he made a decent pickup horse,wheat pasture and after I got the box sour cured,heading horse. Little light weight for dragging bulls around. He always did throw his head like that. Spike hair,RayBans, beer company tshirt,no chaps or shin guards College Rodeo in the 80's. I had the world by the a$$ and didn't know it.

    I got a ticket for one of my boats numbers being out of order. Got another ticket when i was done fishing and as i was leaving i tossed all my cutbait in the water. Apparently thats still chumming. Even though i wasnt fishing....i got a fine...got a warning for not having my lights turned on on the boat near sunset. CPW is a bunch of jerks for the most part.

    They do a lot of that sh!t here. Magistrate usually throws it out if you have a half thought out rebuttal.

    Don’t have a picture of him cause the access to phone cameras wasn’t good when he was in his prime and he was teaching me to cowboy. He came off the Drummond ranch and he could definitely cow. He was a better ranch horse than an arena horse and green riders was scared of him with cattle around cause he could change direction without shifting gears.  I got him as a blown up head horse. I worked him through his arena and box issues and made something out of him again. For a long time he was my go to mount. Even after I retired him he was my trusted pasture horse when I needed him. Last year he was at the ripe age of 32 when the other horses came up to feed and he wasn’t there. He was the top dog and the rest followed him so I knew something was up. Jump on the atv and go searching and I found a newborn calf I didn’t know I had yet and also found him laying peaceful beside the pond. Still alive but I couldn’t get him up and knew it was his time. I talked to him for a while then I left him beside the pond. 

      I’ve had to shoot other horses of mine when the time came but I didn’t have the heart to do it to him. He wasn't struggling or suffering and that was the spot he picked so I wasn’t gonna take it from him. The next day I went back to see him and cut off some of his mane for memories.  Sorry for the long post without pics but I didn’t want any pics of him being retired. I wanted pics  of him kicking butt and I don’t have any.  Just good memories.  I’ll take some of my others and get them up when I get a chance


    Shooting horses is tough. The best one I ever had did the same for me. Cleaned up his dinner one night, laid down and died an hour or two later. He was pushing forty. I've fostered more than a few that weren't mine to the end. Harsh as it sounds it'll make you a believer in kill floors. Horses die long and hard. Especially it seems the ones that have had good lives.

    It seems you already have the 67,but the 76 Loadstars (or there about) forward tipping cab that looks the same is best hood I have ever dealt with. Just like a cabover,you can get to everything. Just a thought if your changing thing anyway. 

    School bus front. Was pretty much a standard upgrade in these parts.
