So yesterday we had made a plan that we were gonna move our cows with the ponies. Neil wanted to ride his horse before we had to use him for branding so he did and I took Bailey since I should be riding her anyways if I want to sell her. Its a good thing we did. Neil's horse forgot how to stand still while getting on and he thought he would jump a little just as Neil got on. Nothing bad so we just went to work.
We headed out North and then west where the cows were. We wanted to push them West then South to the branding field. Bailey had an issue with her rib sticking out towards Neil's horse, I could pull her head around and get her to move away that way, but no way was she gonna just move over without being pulled around, so I kicked her in the ribs and she was just ignoring me, not good. So I gave her a good kick and she straightened out and that was good for a while. She tried it again later and one little kick brought her back. I always forget with her she would rather a big correction that just nagging. Well I think they all do, but most listen to little correction, she just completely ignores it.
We separated for a while and I headed farther North towards a big bunch up there and got them through the first gate and then we met up again and headed towards the slough and got a bunch through the gate going south. Then over to the other slough dugout to check if anything was there, nope, so we got the rest from that field and closed the far gate and headed back East to where it looked like a couple calves were running back. We just slowly walked and by the time we got there the cows were making so much noise the calves had started coming back, so we just stayed out of their way and they made it all the way to the gate so we closed it, actually the last one just went through the fence but I guess that works too.
All moved and all gates closed then I remembered I had brought my little waterproof camera, duh! But it was in my pocket cause I wasn't sure if I could take the big one with Bailey so I got a few pics on the way home, lol. Oh well more important was we got the cows moved, can take pics next time I guess.
Before we went I separated Jazz and Kali from the others and kept them in, and we will keep in Bailey and George till Wed or Thurs cause will be using them this week and its much easier to catch them if away from Magic. And Jazz is going to the trainer this week. Oh Shirley, sorry I forgot to answer your question. She is going to a guy named Tyler Albrecht. He shows in working cow horse, he showed at the Supreme when you were there I think. He actually worked under Doug for a while. Kinda makes me think everyone did, lol. Im pretty excited for her to go :) Cant wait to start riding her, not that I need more to ride but...
