A fair amount of years ago we just had the meat pole break in camp There were four bulls elk on it and it was not a proper one anyway . We just finished stacking the halves up and I heard a horse nicker ! I looked up and there was Jeremiah and our packer / wrangler Chris Woodcock . I ran and got my camera and snapped this of Jeremiah . It was November 15 th and we had two feet of snow . It was -5 below zero . Jeremiah was 6 ! Chris brought the mules in to bring out the meat and hunters gear . We were all headed out the next day . I had no idea Sue was sending him in to camp . But what a great surprise to share that night with him . He is riding Gus a half pony half quarter horse . He was a Grullo in color . I bought him from Harold Jan’s out of Verdigre Nebraska ! He was a good little horse but had to jog to keep up with the big horses so Jeremiah only rode him a few times . Changing times . Jeremiah ride the 20 miles in one day and the next day we rode back out . On a jogging pony 😊! It was a tremendous hunting season and one if my most favorite years . All great memories ! On a side note I gave Gus to our neighbor Zondra Skertich and she kept him until she outgrew him . I was plowing snow today thinking about this and how many horses I gave to kids around here to get them started in life . It always made me feel good . Good to be home .
