Norm,

  There's something about reading that last statement from you....

His leg to back length look well proportioned.


... and then looking over to the left seeing you holding that hind quarter that would make me nervous if I was that colt.  :o I'm just saying ...  ;)

 :D :D

I plan to just enjoy him, although the grandkids might be thinking barrells someday.  Cowboy Bob enjoys team penning, but we found out the hard way that a good cutting horse ain't necessarily a plus around dairy cows.  He had a mare he called Mama and she was so dedicated to cutting cows, she'd run our heifers through the fence every chance she got.  Yes siree, ol Mama enjoyed bossing those cows, with or without our help.   :o

Great looking colt you have there Roxie,we recently had to sell our cutting horse because he started just running the steer over like he had a grudge or something, but he made someone a great trail horse... does anyone in your area use buffalo to train cutting horses? it's getting to be a popular thing over here.

We had a cutting horse show up at our farm once that loved to boss around the cows. The neighbor brought over his bull for services and cured the horse of that habit real fast. :D

He is beautiful Roxie! I love the loud paints, they are really popular around here.

We have a guy about 15 miles from us that raises World Champion paints. It is fun to go by in the spring when all the babies are out frolicking.

Maybe you could call him Loud Paint.  Anyway, it is probably too late since I bet that you have named him already.

His name is Whiskey.  Here's a picture of him checking out the cattle trailer.





And here he is, with four in the air!

My brother's favorite horse growing up was named Whiskey! On a sad note my dad sold him and my brother was devastated....too bad we couldn't of sold him instead. ;D

He's a beauty Roxie, are you going to keep him?

Great pics!!

We're up to about 429" of snowfall this season with a 79" base at 10,200'.
So, it's about average, maybe a little low overall.

Here's a pic of clearing snow around our cabin with a 2003 BR2000 snowcat.

WDH - LOL!  I don't think the roof would quite hold the cat (18,000lbs).   That was just my feeble attempt at clearing the roof, before hiring a snow-removal crew.  What you see in the vertical opening on the roof is a ladder I have attached to the ridge.  There is about 3-4' of standing snow on the roof. 

But the cat is about 7-8' above the ground in that picture.  hehe.

Stonebrooke - we're designed for 160lbs/sq-ft.
1/2 way through construction, the engineer made us replace some of the horizontal wood logs in our post & beam roof support structure with steel.  When I visit the south, or Ohio I can't believe how simple/inexpensive the roof structures are!

Roxie, your little colt, Whiskey, is a real beauty! I can't believe your pasture is so green already, we are just now getting rid of the last of our snow. This morning I see the neighbor is putting on his anhydrous, so I guess spring is truly here!!  8)

That must be because you have that nice dry snow. Places in the Adirondacks have a 200lb snowload. Down south it is zero .  That is why the chicken houses fall down when they get a little snow.

Our engineer says it will hold over 200lb/sqft, but it is only submitted for 160 on the plans.

While our snow falls light & dry, the strong sun and fast melt-freeze cycle consolidates our layers quckly increasing the per sq/ft loading beyond say mid-west snowpack.  Our top layer (1-4') can be fluffy, but below it is a solid, heavy pain-in-the-you-know-what to shovel base.

Here are a few pictures of our snow from 2008 Winter where we got literally 1000" of snowfall.
I measured 14' of standing base.  Our neighbor's A-Frame picture is the best.
