Re: Mule saddle

I never had a problem with my crupper making my mule sore. The most I've ever ridden him all day was 10 days in a row in some pretty steep and slippery country. He never had a problem with the crupper, but it was a well made crupper and it was adjusted properly. I still agree that a britchin is the ...

Re: Mule saddle

Mike,

Like I told somebody yesterday, I consider myself a mule man, but I've owned a lot better horses than mules. Good mules are hard to find. It's like the old saying, "good saddles ain't cheap and cheap saddles ain't good". That's twice as true for mules.

Re: Mule saddle

you remember that big old hill to the north east of the ranch house about 1/2 mile? the one with the big pines on it we told you the kids slide down in the snow in the winter? So be sure you get them horses and mules ready for that under their tail or you may look like me fogging off that hill on t...

Re: New to forum from South Louisiana

I'm not laughing. I've got some beagle rabbit dogs that would probably try to tackle a bear. I doubt they'd win, though. I went to college with a bunch of boys from Folsom who used to coon hunt the Lake Ponchartrain marsh around Bayou Lacombe. I've hunted the edges of it around Madisonville and Manc...

Re: New to forum from South Louisiana

I used to hunt with a guy in Bayou LaBattre, AL who marsh hunted coon. They would literally run all night until either the dogs gave out or they caught the coon on the ground. They would run out of the marsh into the swamp but never tree. I'm easing into hog hunting myself, but I haven't bought any ...

Re: Bluetick Bear Hounds

Hogman, I see you're in Brookhaven. I'm in Kentwood, LA myself, so we're practically neighbors. We've probably coon hunted with some of the same people. I've heard the "slow blue dogs" argument all my life. I agree with most of what is said on here. Sometimes slow is in the eye of the beho...

Re: New to forum from South Louisiana

Welcome to the forum. You'll find some good folks here who know their way around a dog. I'm just an old southeast Louisiana coon hunter, but I know a few guys who hog hunt. I assume if you're from the marsh, you're probably on the western side of the state?

Re: Mule saddle

I've used both a britching and a crupper. A crupper is more convenient if you have a good one and it will work in your country. My last mule didn't need one at all. It depends on the mule. I don't use them, but I know a mule guy in east Texas that swears by those flex tree or even tree-less saddles....

Re: Hunting Horses

I've never had a need to shoot a gun off of a horse or a mule while hunting, but all of my horses and mules are gun broke. I do know a couple of old Mississippi squirrel hunters who hunt with terriers and ride mules. They never get off their mules except to pick up dead squirrels. I've found that th...

Brood Gyp

I've got the last of David Pierce's hounds here and I really don't need another mouth to feed. I took her in because of his poor health. She's an older gyp, looks really nice, sounds nice, and I have seen her hunt. All I know that he ever used her for was a brood gyp, but I own a pup off of her that...

Re: Big Blue pups on the ground in SW TX

Mr. Pierce is in pretty bad health and is not hunting anymore. I got a phone call from him a couple of days before Christmas saying that he wanted to let his last two females go to a good home. If you like what you have from him and you're still interested in a female, I'd give him a call. The numbe...

Re: Canyon and Moses

Which hound is not a Silver Mist hound? The Silver Mist Donna that is in the pedigree of one of these hounds posted? Not that it concerns me, I'm just confused.

Re: Price of hay

Well it won't be right away, but, the horse slaughter being reopened may help hay prices. I sure hope so! Supply and demand Reopening the slaughter market is the best thing to happen down here in a long time. As for hay, alfalfa won't grown down here and we can only get it in small 2 wire bales or ...

Re: Mexico Cat Dog type

Personally, I think you COULD use the same Catahoula for a cow dog and a cat dog (if it fits the bill in your part of the world). I know plenty of people around here that use theirs for both and I have too. One thing you need to remember is that a Catahoula doesn't really "herd" cattle lik...
