Working Dogs?

I have would be wonderful to have a cattle dog - something that would help me herd, sort, move, separate the cows...or at the least something that would protect me if things turned sour. But all I have are these two strays for which I am trying desperately to find a home. Contrary to HELPING me, these two are a hinderance as they chase the cows! Anybody want a dog?

Natural Horsemanship

In this game, Silver learns to trust April & not only accepts being touched all over his body by the stick and string, he willingly walks up to her & puts his head in her lap. To find out more about April and her incredible ability to communicate with horses, just click on the link for her website listed under UNDERSTANDING YOUR HORSE.

Silver, the stallion

A stallion's work is never done; he constantly patrols the perimeter in hopes of finding a way out of his pasture and into his harem's pasture...but, alas, breeding season is a few months away.

Registration photos

Foals must be registered before six months old in order to avoid penalties, so it's picture taking well as pulling mane/tail hair for DNA tests & completing registration papers.
