Just hangin out and helping Dad

Braden has been so excited this summer because he gets to break his very first colt. Sammy is about two years old. He was born right out here in our littlle pasture beside the house. The boys have played with him and been around him so much That the horse is about as gentle as you'll find. so I guess the proper phrase would be, Braden is going to train him. Last night Roger didn't get home until after dark so Braden went out and saddled Sammy by himself, put the bridle on him and then got brave enough to climb on to his back. Sammy stood there a minute then turned his head looked at Braden nuzzled his leg and acted as if he'd been born with a cowboy on his back. Nothing to it.

By the way notice the nice corral They're in. That was last Saturdays project. Roger and the boys spent about the whole day building this round corral just for the pupose of starting Sammy.

This was Chancee's favorite part about building the corral, digging the post holes. Yeah Roger's dug so many post holes that he digs them perfectly now. Look how round and perfect That hole is. It amazes me.
Truthfully I had to scroll back through the pictures I,d posted to make sure You couldn;t see the post hole digger on the back of the tractor.
