This is Parker riding Snickers and Alan a little behinde him. Notice Ben in the background on the gray mare, I am just pointing it out because that is the only time that day that he was on top of the horse. I think I will nickname her HB. (If you don't get that you haven't spent enough time watching Lonesome Dove, or maybe I have spent too much time watching.) Jer and I felt so bad this was a horse that we had brought with us that Jer was training. Jer has never had a single problem with her, she must not have been a fan of guys named Ben. Jer and I both felt really bad that Ben kept getting dumped, but he just kept climbing on.
This was a new experience for me, I have always used a calf table. So Mariah taught me how to flank the calves. This poor calf was so new that it still had it's ambilical cord.
