    For ME? This would be enough to make me start looking HARD for a new position. Few things worse than being unwanted, and not appreciated for your work.

    What makes you think "waiting it out" would...

    Uff poor mare.

    My first thought was hit by a car as well - I don't think a barbed wire fence would break skull and jaw bones - it also looks like her knee is quite swollen (but not cut) - and...

    Curious - How do you use roping in your training Murphy? I see a few mentioning using it to catch a horse - but I wonder how it is used as a training tool.

    Uff - what a situation.

    I don't think its "fake" - I can buy the idea that only a select few treatment centers would take someone this far gone.

    What I can't wrap my head around is the fact...

    I am thinking roping as a training tool (the horse at Buck's clinic wasn't out on 2,000 acres - but rather in an arena).

    And I have kept horses on 50 -70 acres - and never needed to rope....

  11. Spin off of buck brannaman - Do YOU know how to lasso a horse?

    Spin off of the BB thread - Now, I am not saying that lassoing a horse is abuse - but is it a tool you use?

    I never learned how to lasso an animal - I played with ropes a bit, and have tossed them...

    Its a "colt starting clinic" - I am just not a fan of hauling green youngsters to a strange place - then attempting to introduce tack, and start them under saddle in a matter or hours, or days.

    I like much of what Buck says and all.....

    But I *REALLY* do not understand the "rushing" with a "wild" (ie, very green, not much handling) horse type stuff. I have never in 30 years had a need to...

    Horrible - but honestly, she did not "chase him from behind" - she went at his shoulder - and he wheeled and kicked her in the face...

    These two obviously do not have a wonderful relationship.
