    Great things to look back on.

    Buckshot, Your grandfather did what most everyone did. It was just "the way" I grew up doing it that way, on the ranch I spent my time. Or actually, watching the cowboys do it. It was when I got 'out on my own' that I realized that I was more likely going to get hurt. And I did get hurt, and have some bad spills. I started looking for 'another way'. "There's gotta be another way!" I was thinking! And off the ranch, with personal horses of my own, I came to see them differently, as friends, and loyal companions. I didn't want it to be like that for them. Eventually, after time and quite alot of money spent on going to clinics of one kind or another, I found it. (and Wayne) I also found some fruit loops doing ridiculous things, and learned just about as much about what I despised, as what I liked. But that was good too.

    I look back and think, "Oh man, if I had that horse now, I could do it so much better!" But I think that about everything....

    Anyone who is serious about their horsemanship, should read books by Tom and or Bill Dorrance, Ray Hunt, Buck Brannaman. Read them over and over again, and watch their videos. I have all Ray's videos, and several of Bucks and others. We watch them, and I see something new every time...or it sinks in more. And I can't imagine how many times I've watched them.

    I went on a bit, ...but the point is, don't worry about your Grandfather, he'd do it differently now too!
