Working Horses, Working Dogs

I've been blessed with the opportunity to spend a lot of time at Jason Hanson's.  Jason's been kind enough to let me bring Reba with me to give her some experience on cattle.  The bonus is that I'm learning a lot about cutting.

Last week I spent about 9 hours there, holding herd while he trained horses.  This is great.  It gives Bacardi the miles under saddle she needs, and in between horses before we change cattle I can give Reba the chance to learn and work the cows.  It's a total win-win situation.  I've got to admit - I haven't spent this much time in the saddle since I left Consort.  It's amazing how quickly those muscles let you know...

Next week, we'll be back in the arena working horses (Jason - not me!) and working dogs.  What a great way to spend a summer!
