Granpa Saddling Up
Grandpa’ saddling up the horses

I remember Grandpa’ had a calm way about him when handling horses.  He moved slow and would kind’a whistle, more like a subconscious whistle, that would keep the horses calm and to let the horse know he was moving around them.  It was a pleasure to watch and learn.   I was amazed at the way he could lay-out the saddle blanket and set the saddle in just the perfect spot over the withers all at the same time with just one hand.
