“The greatest deterrent
to freedom are men and women of zeal, well-meaning, but
without knowledge or understanding.”

"People are so quick to defend their own agendas, but they so often fail to realize we must protect the rights of all if we are to continue to have any rights of our own."

Ranch meaning, in general, any real world dwelling probably not involving full care board. Kind of a rural voice of real horse owners, trainers, traders, auction owners, rodeo contractors, etc.. all of us who have taken a verbal beating and called greedy ass hats. Back at the Ranch contributors, moderators, subjects, and so on, are pro-horse, pro-owner, and pro-slaughter.
Back at the Ranch was formed by a group of like minded horse / livestock owners. It is a place for us to try to educate, a place to vent our frustrations with the current equine industry, a place to share humor and snark, and in general try to open the eyes of the public who seem to be anti-agriculture.We do have a section for comments of course, and if you would like to email us you can do so directly or through the contact us form. We like to hear from our readers. I hope you enjoy reading our blog as much as I enjoy managing it.

Aren’t They The Coolest Thing You Ever Did See????

While Fugly and Team *NAHSC are scanning the globe or at least Craig’s List and the North American continent for things in the horse world to bitch about we miss things like this. They are on Craig’s List too, but we didn’t hear about them. Even though they are on Craig’s List I’m going guess they are not in need of rescue. In other words I’ll bet they ain’t cheap. According to the ad they come with the harness, wagon, and all the gear, the ponies range in age from 8 to 15, and are one of only five in the U. S.. I don’t know about that but I think they are the cutest things I’ve seen in a long time. You tube video under Crazy 8’s Ponies.

Sometimes we need to stop bitching and remember why we all give a crap about what happens to the horses and the horse industry. We need to celebrate the good. What a well trained and turned out set of ponies. Think how much effort has gone into matching and training them not to mention the financial outlay for their gear.

  1. now that is the coolest thing I have seen. I have never seen a 8 horse team only 4s and doubles and singles.

  2. Boy, you're not kidding! It took me almost a year to find ONE little mini to match another. You're right, this is a nice, well trained team. The good news is that this team shouldn't need to be "saved" by the NAHSC
