Shelman Horse Sale

Little guy waiting to go into the ring

This horse didn't want to walk across the pallet so he jumped.

Pulling a tire
A local horse breeder and trainer had a sale this summer, and I went to take photos. It was at the Bell-A ranch this time. I got to see some of the horses for sale who were identified with numbers on their flanks. Different buckaroos put the horses through their paces which included pulling a tire and walking over a pallet.  It shows how well the horses are trained.The little guy in the photos with the big hat someone said was 5 or 6 years old. Shelman trains horses for working with cows. At one of his auctions I went to last year one horse went for $7,000.
