She also ate anything - dead birds, rats, mice, slugs, mushrooms and worms etc.
The mother climbed up on the lid of the cistern to get a better view of the world and crashed through, that was the end for her. The daughter totally lost it after that and was sold to...I won`t say.

Damn, that's not good. Surprising that they were Arabians, mine have always been very well-mannered and gentle. They are a bit spirited once you get past a trot, but just hanging out, they are pretty peaceful.

My daughter was riding hers when she was 4 :p

I think you have to tire them out in the ring before approaching and no oats prior to handling...
Fuck That Shit!

I used to go for coffee with my Grandpa when I was a kid, one day he locked his hand in the door, but he never said anything, he just tried to reach in his pocket to get the car keys out again, then he unlocked the door and we went for coffee. I don't remember if he ever went to see the Dr. about it or not, but thats how farmers are, tough as leather, and they figure out how to do things on the fly and repair things with whatever is around them.

LOL No one dared to be caught sitting around doing nothing.

When I was a kid, my neighbors were dairy farmers. I use the word 'neighbors' lightly since they were about 3 miles away lol. But when I was little, I became a volunteer farm hand. I'd get up at 4:30, saddle up my horse, ride through the timber and pasture and meet up with them back where the cows were. We'd then drive them to the barn for the morning milking, then I'd ride back home and get ready for school. As soon as I got home, I'd do it again for the afternoon milking.

I thought I was a real cowboy at age 7 :p  I had the hat, the boots and even the lariat draped around the saddle horn. I know those guys worked really, really hard at what they did, but my part was pretty fun actually :)

Oh that sounds great. I can just see you doing that.

Ours came when they were called. They loved that dairy feed. We only had about 25 that were milked. It was a very small operation.

I've stayed on a few dairy farms & would help out before breakfast at milking time.
In the mornings many of the cows would be waiting at the gate ready to be milked. When the gates were opened those that weren't waiting would amble up to the milking sheds.

Never had to round them up.

It is amazing that he had not passed out from the pain !!
It is equally amazing that he didn't bleed to death !!
