Yes sir robby and I have been friends a long time.
Berkeley Springs, WV, United States
Richard Boatwright yes sir i started him ive had him almost 60 days got on him first couple days just because he was so easy going! on the ground he has no problem moving his feet but on his back he's pretty dull im hoping they leave him with me another 30 days
Richard Boatwright no worries completely get it! I have a hard time navigating computers period so can't judge someone else on how fast they respond lol 😆 got a new colt in the other day going to start him in the morning
Commented on Getting the buck out
i have one thats acts about the same i bought this horse knowing he was going to be a challenge and boy is he 1st one thats bucked me off in awhile and i new it was coming lol so i just decided to approach him like i do a colt try to fix holes in the foundation either someone has broke this horses trust or he learned that if i act like a squirrel get all big eyed and blow that people will just leave me alone or he is just an outlaw and why i ended up with either way im going to give a fair shot at having a good life with me or sending him down the road! honestly i think it really depends on how much your willing to put into one and you have to look at do you think he will make the type of horse there looking for?
Commented on Saddling issues
just went threw the same thing with a colt i have in for training he had been saddled 5 or 6 times before i got him and everytime he popped his cork so wasnt a good experience for him so i started with just a rope then a girth with a cinch and got him to except that then i moved to a very small pony saddle then back to my saddle it was a 2 week journey and some of those days it seemed like he was never going to get it but today he finally let me saddle him and work him with out anything ugly happening even got some weight in the stirrups so stay the course follow the code reward the smallest of tries thats my 2 cents
Hopefully real soon! Wanted to come on the 10th but we have a saddle club show that day have to go support the family! It's also good for the horses I have in for training to get out and get some exposure its awesome to see someone I went to school with be into the same thing I am!!! Got an old head horse I want to use some and got a filly in for training that I'd like to get on some cattle!
Replied on Thanks
