Our friends Bob and Diana visited us and took their Clydesdale Boomer for a Sunday drive.

Our horses prefer grazing to working. In this photo, Reggie is in a paddock of about 3 acres and Paj is on about 7 acres. You'd never know it to look at them. You'd never know that the fence is electric, but it is. They know exactly how close they can get.

The other big happening this weekend was the National Reined Cow Horse Association competition. Our neighbor Chuck showed his horses Boss Man and Rooster.

About all I know about this discipline is that the horse and rider cuts a cow out of the herd and tries to keep it from getting back to the herd. There's a lot more to it than that. Both of Chuck's horses did really well.
