whoah Nellie? Who was drunk, those riding herd, or the horses?
In my young and stupid years I rode yearlings a LOT. Take 'em out to the garden (freshly tilled) where the fall had a softer landing.
Ever tried to saddle up a yearling? Ain't NO way you're gonna cinch that girth up tight enough to stop that saddle from spinning under its belly. They're totally ROUND!
The view from the underside of a yearling while riding it upside down changes frequently.
Growing up on a farm provides many "hold my beer, watch this" moments.
Such as: for some reason we decided rolling off the barn tin roof on to the lean to tin roof stable was a good idea. eeyyyup, caved the stable roof in and landed UNDER "Old Buck" who truly WAS old, Dad's horse from when he was a teen. In that case, OLD was a good thing. Too old to even react much.
I can share the pain of ridin' a horse while "under the influence".
Distinctly remember one trail ride up into the foothills above DeLight, Arkansas. Discovered the more often you dragged a cold "wine coolder" out of a saddle bag the less pain ya felt in your backside. "are ya numb yet? newp, gimme another one"
those were the days :sigh:
