Lena is cow-y. She reminded us of this when we were up at Slide. She is not afraid and can handle moving cows around as needed. She even likes chasing them.
But we got to see a real cow horse--Truly a Hot Pepper--give the cows (and her rider) a run for the money.
This here is a National Champion Cutting horse, and damned if she didn't prove it. She made all the youngsters look like, well, youngsters. She made Tiffany laugh the whole time. She made the ex-racehorse stand perfectly still and watch.
In other words, she was awesome--everything a real cow horse should be.
