So Tuesday I went and practiced my team roping with one of my partners. Then Yesterday it was way to cold for that but I ended up having to go cut a horse out of a fence. Then today it was more team roping and helping catch an injured cow. Tomorrow it looks like it might be more of the same.
So Tuesday I did chores and then headed to one of my team roping partner’s house. We spent some time working on our team roping. While my partner roped really well, I didn’t do so great. I don’t know if it was because I took Ice or what but we just weren’t roping very good at all. I spent the whole day trying to figure out why.
Yesterday, it was just to cold for anything. It was like 20 degrees out but felt more like 4. I decided to stay inside for the most part. However, that changed when I got a call about a horse with his leg caught in a wire fence. The owner was at work and couldn’t get to the horse so I set out to see what I could do.
I got to the horse in little to no time. And sure enough he wasn’t going to be able to get out of the fence without some help from some wire cutters. This poor guy had the wire fencing not only around his legs but also between his hoof and his shoe. It took me a little time but the horse was calm and just stood while I cut the wire away. With the fence all cut away I took the horse to a pen and put him up until his owner could get there and take care of him. There really wasn’t any serious injury to the horse so I felt just fine leaving him in the stall. After that I called the owner and let him know what was going on.
Today I headed back to my Roping Partner’s house to get in some more practice. Ice and I did better and things seemed to go more smoothly. When I got home I got a call that my Uncle needed some help getting an injured cow in so I set out with Precious to get that done. Not only did we catch that cow but we also caught her again when she got away. After that we doctored two other calves before I headed home.
As for now I am going to get to work helping Mom get things ready for Winter Woolfest. Again this year Mom is teaching two classes. Tunisian Crochet and a Fiber Notebook class. I will be there with raw fleece as well as Yarn, soaps and anything else Mom tells me we are taking … LOL
