    Default Tired of the Rat Race? Meet Lee the Horselogger!

    Maybe Lee's nomadic horsey life is what you need instead of commuting to work and sitting in that office cubicle trying to keep the boss happy.

    Sorry, have met him more times than I can count. The guy is a loose cannon with an attitude and I feel sorry for his horses.

    Wow. That's unambiguous.

    I was wondering about this, as there are people in New England who could do the horse logging job. Why call in someone from Colorado? The video would only play for the first 14 seconds, so if the answer is in there, then I apologize for asking the question.

    Mr. Breeches and I saw him not too long ago on US 85. Can't remember if he was stopped in Eaton or Ault for the night

    Well....I have never met him, but his horses certainly look good.

    I am also drawn to certain loose-cannon types who do their own thing despite the odds, especially when it involves horses

    I could see the whole video, there was no explanation for that. Perhaps he sought out the job, and they liked the cut of his jib?

    None, however, to be found on this forum.

    From The Phrase Finder:

    Loose cannon


    Meaning

    An unpredictable person or thing, liable to cause damage if not kept in check by others.


    Eewww...I think I'll keep my distance.

    Sorry, but lee the horse logger has spent much of his time in the last 2 years floating around the Willamette Valley, being kicked out of one parking lot after another. One of his horses died, he was cited for his stallion getting loose and trying to get to some mares that were at a 4H ride night at the fairgrounds. I personally spent about half an hour wiht him one night wiht the original intentions of letting him place his horses at our house for a few days..plenty of draft safe fencing, stalls and room to roam... He actually said that because of his publicity that we would get for our farm, he should charge us for being there... he is a rude, crass man that needs to get a job and stop working people for donations. His mission is no longer a mission, he is just a homeless guy with horses now... you can find him on facebook, where he has pages set up for donations, as well as his regular website leehorselogger.com

    You know I had never heard of him before today - but that is exactly the impression I got of him. That and that he is rude and very self entitled. He has quite a beggars list on his web site for someone that is supposed to be "working".

    I have worked with the homeless and the aimless for decades. Some of them are just this way. Here is betting that there is not a long list of previous clients, nor will their ever be. And when he gets to his destination - and I'll bet he won't - he will have either a problem with the job, the pay or the management or he will become "injured" and head back "home" with little to no actual work done. In a few years I doubt he will have horses just be homeless and wandering or in housing - sorry he just fits that mold to a Tee.

    Seen it, now i have seen it with horses.
