Weekend, August 4-5, 2018 – There was this city kid. Grew up in what used to be a normal neighborhood. At age 8 he was building sidewalk scooters – old roller skates nailed to one-inch thick boards with a 1×1” post and handle. Worked well mostly despite falling off many times and crashing into the neighbors’ hedges. At 12 he was fascinated by cars and watched a relative work in the garage until repairing one or two resulted in acquiring an old 1932 Ford Model B at age 18 and turning it into something he called a 50hp hot rod that wasn’t so very hot at all, especially after he drove it into a tree. In his 20s he was driving a 350 hp ’34 Ford Victoria and raced it on desert salt flats. Until he crashed it.  By age 32 he hopped aboard real horse power for the first time.  And was thrown to the ground because of a loose cinch.

As time went on he gained much experience taking horses into the high country and, short of anything resembling a Ford Mustang with a flat tire at 90mph, began figuring out how horses worked and, getting frequently bucked off while starting 2-year old colts, understood what made horses tick. Then he went hunting in the Rockies and only once felt hard ground hitting butt when…yes, another cinch broke and, with the saddle ending up beneath a running away horse, he picked his bloody self up, dusted himself off and, as the song goes, started all over again. Eight horses and many hunting seasons later, and all those personal animals buried and fondly remembered, he settled down and took up walking during hunting seasons. Turned out to be far safer, especially as old age crept in.

Horses are unique animals. Many are smarter than we give them credit for, and there are those that are dumber than a rock. So, some advice: If you’re getting into horses on a once-a-year basis to go hunting far up the trail, learn to walk with them, talk to them, soothe and comfort them…and don’t take any guff from them, and you’ll get along fine. Horses are working critters. Under optimum conditions they’ll get you there and back, haul out your big game and, some even, will entertain you in the process, as you’ll see in this edition of…
