    Here lately in my latter days I've become conscious of my "legacy"!
    I do Not want my great grand daughter to remember me as the ole coot who fell off his tractor and plowed himself into the damn ground.
    I do have my pride, believe it or not!

    I had my horse fall on my leg once on an asphalt road with gravel embedded in it. That wasn't a bit of dang fun.

    I never had a horse fall on me, but had a young filly drag me a considerable distance before I could cut loose.
    It was all my fault.
    A horse is the most innocent of God's creations, IMO.

    Got bucked off when I was about eight. Tossed headfirst over a barbwire fence. Managed to stick since then.

    Horses are dangerous, especially out alone in the mountains: just you and a string of horses, each one a lot bigger and stronger than you. I used to imagine the worst, dumbass, ornery, cussed trick a critter could pull, and they didn't disappoint me.

    But in thousands of miles riding and packing, I only got hurt bad once, by a clumsy packhorse falling off a switchback trail. That one is with me still.

    I'm glad I had 3 boys.
    That's a tough one Fred.
    I'd say no.
    You'd have nothing to gain by doing so.

    I've know some sweet horses... some cantankerous horses... some moody horses... and one I decided was just pure evil.

    I'm not really much of a horsey guy... but I've been involved with my share of horsey girls. Starting in junior h.s. - when I actually learned to ride. She lived right near the beach, so what I mostly got while learning was sand-burns. Never had one kick me, but had a few slither out from under me. One memorable time - purely by accident - one stepped on my foot. And the three from junior h.s. - well, let's just say they were voyeurs. And they made a lot of gratuitous noises that I took as ridicule. Distracting to a young feller who was just feeling his way... My girlfriend thought they were funny. Even now... my god-daughter trains polo ponies. Summers at a spread in Wyoming. Winters in Florida. Me... I can ride a bit, but still don't know all that much about 'em. I never did learn which end to milk...

    When I visited Yellowstone, I got to thinking that I would love to head across here for a while with a horse and a pack mule.

    Sorry to hear that, Fred!
    About all you can do is give her away, if that is her wish!
    I'll have Rum for you when it's done!
    Best wishes, Sir!
    I gave away two daughters, but not under such a circumstance.

    Dynamite wasn't a bad horse, but something sure got into him that day. I was trying to rig a martingale across his chest when he spun around and kicked me. He sure was fast. I wondered if he ate something that made him paranoid.

    Started riding for a living in 1972. Fed from a bobsled, calved, and cowboyed in the off-season, and rode range as a grazing cop June-September. Rode and packed horses in rough country most years until 1988, when I switched to llamas for sampling alpine lakes. I love living with horses and most of them love me.

    There's a trick my Da taught me, when a horse is on the fight, to put my hand or wrist under his nose— my scent calms and comforts a horse. My Da had that gift— I think it's in the blood. He grew up ranching, but his father worked him too hard so he became an aircraft engineer.

    My grandfather reared and sold Belgian draft horses and American Saddlebreds. His great-grandfather started ranching horses at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon in the Salt Lake Valley in 1850, buying wornout stock from the 49'er wagon trains and feeding them up, selling and swapping horses, oxen, and mules with the next year's pilgrims.

    I miss having horses around, but have no reason to work with them, and can't imagine having one as a pet.

    I think I was less than 10years old when my parents bought Ditto for me. He was 1.5 years old. I used to ride him bareback in the morning until I saw the school bus come down the road. Then get back on him in the afternoon when I got home. I probably spent more time with this horse than with people. That probably still influences my dealings with people. That was a great horse.

    That looks a lot like the head of the Green River. Not so far to Yellowstone.

    The extra stirrups were rigged on an extra leather strap and draped over the saddle and tied to the saddle. I still have that saddle.

    Yeah I know.
    Electric Peak was named during the first ascent in 1872 by the United States Geological Survey. Members of the Hayden Survey led by Henry Gannett experienced electrical discharges from their hands and hair after a lightning event on the summit.

    When I lived in Eugene, I had friends who kept horses outside of town. They rigged the stirrups that way for their kids until they grew into the stock ones. They called 'em 'training wheels'.

    When I was riding the southern Wind River Range from a line shack at Cross Lake, I'd leave Big Sandy Opening at dawn with my pack string and climb out of the East Fork River canyon up to a broad rocky ridge they call the Sheep Desert (badly overgrazed), just as the worst of the lightning storms roared across the Green River Basin. I'd pull up in a swale and look at the clouds, trying to judge the timing of the strikes. When I felt confident, I'd make a dash across the high point, hauling the pack string as fast as I dared. Being on a horse with iron shoes makes you a target.

    Never got zapped, but I did see strikes nearby. Almost got bucked off once when my horse flipped out at a bolt that blasted off the top of a whitebark pine.

    God, that was fun!

    Ok, even though 'foul mood' was one of the secret ingredients of Bobby Java, we should give Fred a pass on the coffee making detail.

    As for not liking a future SIL and refusing to give your daughter away, that's a tough one alright. I feel for you and all the lip biting you'll likely be doing.

    You might want to find something pleasant, like sex or sailing, to focus on during the wedding photos. The pics can be quite telling and they manage to be around for a loooong time. We were checking out some expressions of in-laws on wedding photos from 1955 the other day.

    For a dose of some 'misery loves company'; A few weeks back my poor bro flew down here on a Monday, spent a few days with lawyers and retirement homes as power of atty, had mom moved in on Thursday, drove back to Va on Monday with elderly father and step mom in tow so they could attend bro's youngest and only daughters wedding the following Saturday. The next week he and wifey drove back down here to help empty the old family home so it could be put on the market. And then drove back home the following (this past) Monday. Whew! I know all of his damn dogs are barking.

    Fortunately for him, though, he appreciates his future SIL and thinks the daughter finally met her match.

    Still I wouldn't drink any coffee he makes right now, either.
