Post a picture of your horse ...

#1 Post by JimT » Sat Oct 05, 2019 3:52 pm

I don't have any now, but when I did this was one of my favorite ... photo is from the early 1980's ... the Quarter Horse is "Shay's Gal" ... a Three Bars mare .. about 30 months old in this photo. She turned out to be a really great mountain horse. We hunted together for many years. She was a good friend.

Little Joe has long since passed.

You know I don't think I ever got a picture of him..... but he visits me regularly in my dreams. Loved the summers of being a cowboy …… not playing it like my friends did, but actually doing it.

I understand Wm.... wish I had more pictures of the horses we had.

Years ago I wrote some stories about me and the horses .... they are on the Leverguns site ... for anyone who has not read them and is interested:

Despite the resemblance, this is not me; but I do applaud guy's choice of animals.

Image

This is me on a rented mule named Supai at the north rim, Grand Canyon. Mules have a sense of humor, as evidenced by his occasional attempt to crowd my left boot into a Juniper pine. He also lived up to his reputation for sure-footedness with some fancy footwork around deadfall on a steep trail.

Image

And this is Sgt. Pete, a gentle and big hearted mule if there ever was one. It takes a year or two for them to really trust you, but once they do there is no more stable and sensible mount.

This is Vandal......real name Coach Vinny. He sold as a yearling for nearly half a million but was decidedly too lazy for the track and ended up at a kill sale. We got him from a rescue for a few hundred bucks. He is easily one of the kindest and most gentle animals to grace GODs green Earth, our toddlers ride him.

My mare "Shay's Gal" was nearly the same way. Her sister was Quarter Horse of the Year back in the mid-80's. Gal was too slow for the track and we were able to get her for pennies on the dollar. Her blood line on the Thoroughbred side went back to Native Dancer. I was happy she was too slow for the track as she made an excellent mountain horse for both hunting and trail riding ... and became a close and trusted friend.

I shouldn't really post here as I don't own any horses but here are some of my mounts that I rode this past summer:

Debbie, a draft cross. She wasn't too excited about anything but she wasn't fast either. You could rope off of her if you could get her going fast enough to catch up to it which turned out to be near impossible. Great mountain horse, didn't seem to care what mischief the pack mules behind her were up to.

Image

Reba was a great cow horse. She was a great mount if a bit spooky in the thick timber, especially around the deadfalls.

Image

I never even knew this knot heads name. A little spooky but nothing unusual, pretty darn barn sour though.

Image

I don't have a picture of Pistol, he was... special (and not in a good way). Normally a pack horse (they didn't tell me that until after I'd been riding him a few days) he did fine following someone else but as soon as you tried to take him off on his own he started coming apart. Acted like a wild animal every morning when it was time to catch horses and get them ready but once you did manage to get something around his neck he calmed right down. Scared of cows, trees, shadows, the wind, his own farts, etc. I made the mistake of trying to rope off of hime once. Just once.
But through all that he still tried. He broke my rifle but only after I made him go through a bog (that he didn't want to) and he got hung up and went down. Twice I had poor fitting saddle roll on him and he just stopped and waited for me to figure out what the heck I was doing. There was something wrong with this horse, he'd been through several owners/trainers and never learned a thing but he never did unload me even when presented with prime opportunity. Oh he wen't down several times but that is not the same. Even riding through the snowstorm he did alright even if he was a bit spooky.

I like the way you pack the rifle. I packed mine the same way but on the other side. Worked for me. With the rifle like that I could get it out and into action without getting out of the saddle. I saw guys carry them like the movies .. horizontal with butt to the rear .. and saw lost rifles when the horse jumped a small creek or ditch. I deer hunting one morning and coming down the trail to where there was a small ravine the horse had to hop over, there was a 30-30 Winchester laying in the dirt. I got off and picked it up, climbed back aboard and laid the rifle across my lap and rode on down the trail. In about a mile I met up with 3 guys horseback. One was the local Baptist preacher and I could see his scabbard was empty. I rode up and said "howdy" and we talked about where the deer were. After a bit I said, "God gave me a new rifle." Of course they all started asking how that happened. I explained about the 30-30 I was holding and suddenly the preacher got this funny look on his face as he glanced back where his rifle should be. I handed it back to him, for which he was thankful. It was worth seeing the look on his face.

Thats a pretty funny story! I bet his face was priceless!
Honestly I'd have rather had that scabbard pulled a little farther back but it wasn't possible with that borrowed scabbard. The buttstock sitting just behind the neck strap on the breast collar would have been ideal but no matter what I tried I couldn't get it pulled back further. It did sit comfortably right under my knee and was easy to get to the rifle mounted or not. Even from the drivers side it was easy to reach over the horse to get the rifle. I did have an old boot lace run through the scabbard so I could tie the rifle in place but it really wasn't needed.

We owned a Haflinger pony for a couple years though. I miss those days.... :(

Sorry about the poor picture, click to enlarge, they are not mine but I have to look after them occasionally. Unfortunately they have only been schooled for English :roll: so no use to me.
