The Cowboy Two Step

The Rancher is a roping cowboy, as is most of these cowboys around here.  My family, on the other hand, are cutting cowboys.  I love when you see a horse that is knows what she is doing.  She moves with the cow, understanding her every move.  In so many ways it like a dance.

Usually I don't see these boys just try to cut and sort out a cow- they just resort to roping her.  Don't get me wrong, there is NOTHING wrong with that, but this girl wants to see some cutting action once in a while.  I got just a minute of it after they weaned calves.

There was an ornery cow that they were bringing in that did everything to work against them.  5 cowboys vs 1 cow.  Guess who won?  Well, the cowboys did eventually but she sure gave them a run for their money.  In fact, they gave up on sorting her and turned to what they did best- roping.  But the chase was good while it lasted!
