CattleToday's Q & A Boards are a Cattle Forum for swapping information and asking and answering questions about breed, health problems, beginners questions and jokes about cattle and horses.
Horses are wonderful. Horses are some of the first memories I have. We had draft horses. I grew up with them. Some folks grow up with dogs. I grew up with these big huge draft horses. They are the most gentle beasts on earth. My brother and I would go out in the pasture and get on them bareback. We were probably only 60 pounds. It is amazing how wonderful those memories are. I loved those horses.FarmerShell wrote: ↑Sat Jun 08, 2019 4:16 pmMeet Naynay our mini horse!! Hi Naynay!!! We think she is in heat. She just had her 2nd birthday. Should I start looking for her a baby daddy or is it to earlier?? She doesn't have any fancy papers (not registered). We brought her off Craigs.... for all I know she could be a regular horse. She is cute I wanted her so we got her. Really we got her for our children. My daughter is the same age 2! 🥰 They can be sasshole together.
I that story. Thanks for sharing. We brought some bottle calfs. Then one day I was taking my 3 year old son to school. He told me, mama I want get my money from the bank to buy more cows. I didn't say anything about it he came up with the idea on his own. Being that his saving account doesn't make much we let him. Pretty big decision for a 3 year old. I'm hoping it will teach him and his sister responsible and all that comes with farming. Its teaching my husband and me things already.Son of Butch wrote: ↑Sat Jun 08, 2019 7:54 pm92 yr old Uncle passed a few years ago. He had built is operation into a large modern farm.
Few years after he retired and moved to town I asked him what he missed most about farming.
His answer surprised me... The Horses (before my time) he was most proud that his Pa trusted
him to hitch up the draft horses by himself and take them out to work the fields.
He sure saw a lot of changes in his lifetime, but the horses from his youth always stuck with him.
