Woodpile Gang hosts " Beat the Winter Blahs" event!
The Gang wanted a rodeo and since around here we don't break horses or bust them, but actually teach or fix them , using horses was out of the questions for bucking stock!
So they chose a Whale Bustin!
Long time friend of the Gang "Leonardo D Leopard", Champion Whale buster from waaay back, was their choice for Judge and official timer for the event.
Chompin Chestnut showing very good form here, but only made a 7.655 second ride.
Stix got a little busted up on his ride but a little wood glue, gauze and vet wrap and he'll be mended up in no time. The Gang made him a crutch since they have not found a health insurance company to cover them having a pre-existing condition of splinters..
Sir Cedar had a bad ride, did not make it 2 seconds before going head first in a snow bank. He'll be fine and his flat head will puff back up in no time! Just cant get the Gang to wear helmets!
Our winner was a new comer to the sport though, being "Perfectin Gold Stryk ".
No one could deny his excellent technique in bringing this whale into control!
A great time was had by all and looking forward to next winters event!
Baby Boy Pine tries his hoof at training. He insisted on a Rocky Mountain Horse as his first try.
So I let him have the reins of this youngster we are just starting here.
I'm going to have to give him the breed snob lecture, but did not want to put a cloud over his first time out. I feel the kid has a gift in being able to convince such a dignified breed to wear a cone on it's head and look happy about it is a good start.
Stixs of the Woodpile Horse Gang landed a gig modeling T-shirts. The ear muffs are not a part of the merchandise but it was a chill day. He was warned though he would have to work on reducing his Booty. It's that little bit of Quarter Horse coming out in him. We feel a diet of wood shaving will get it down some though.
