Your mare is absolutely beautiful @Tex Dennis She sounds and looks like the ideal horse. One of my favorite things to do was shoot rattlesnakes off a trained horse. I have friends that have a couple of great cow horses, but both are a bit nervous with gunshots, even a .22. They developed the skill of using their reins to snap off a rattlesnake's head. They only use their revolvers if they go out on their ATVs.
