horses, paint horseSee these guys?  They are troublemakers. They are in big trouble with T.H. (so am I)

They can run but they can’t hide from me anymore because they are essentially in jail.

T.H. banished them to the “Trap Pasture” while I was out of town. The Trap Pasture is a 40 acre pasture, aptly named, because it is triangle shaped funneling into the cattle pens. (thus trapping them) It’s where he puts things he doesn’t want to escape. They were being bad boys while I was gone. Actually I was supposed to pen them before I left but I kept “forgetting”.

horses, paint horse, ranch lifeYou see T.H. has a Hunting/Outfitting Business in the fall of the year.  This happens to be archery deer season. Grown men pay big bucks to dress up like Rambo and sit in a tree all day waiting for the Big Buck to walk under said tree so they can shoot him with an arrow. (I know)  Then they put the trophy head on their wall back home as a tribute to their manhood.  And why would a deer  saunter under a tree with Rambo hanging out of it?  (I know you were going to ask)

They spread corn out to attract (bait) the deer.

 Guess what else it attracts?  My horses. I have no idea why?
horses, ranch lifeMy horses kept “busting” the hunters up in their trees. My horses like people and they love corn. They don’t know squat about Scent-Block.

Every morning T.H. would walk his hunters into the spot under the cover of darkness, shove their fat asses up a tree and when daylight came, my horses would be munching their snack and looking up at Rambo like “Hey buddy, got any more where that came from?” So much for Scent-Block. (Scent-Block is the modern version of the Emperor’s New Clothes)

horses, pets This understandably caused some upset in the hunting camp and produced quite a bit of devilish laughter from my Evil Twin. Needless to day, I wasn’t surprised that T.H. got tired of me “forgetting” to pen up my horses so he did it while I was gone.
horses, ranch lifeThere is more than that at play here.  I walk and ride this ranch everyday.  On my daily jaunts, I see lots of wildlife. One particular large buck that I consider a friend.  T.H. has plenty of other places to put his hunters.  I’m pretty protective of my buddies so I consider this a war and I am the Chief of my own Covert Operations.  When T.H. or his guides try to pump me for information if I’ve seen any Big Bucks on my jaunts I usually say “No” or give them a wrong location.  I can secretly level the playing field for my buddies …….  and I do.

It’s really not me doing it.  It’s her …….. my evil twin.  She’s like the Honey Badger .

And Honey Badger don’t care.  ***

Love,   Cowgirl Red    aka  Terah

P.S.  Deer season is over in a couple days.  My friend is still here.  And T.H. still doesn’t read my blog.

And Honey Badger really doesn’t give a s%$@

  1. Gotta tell ya, that honey badger clip is my kind of nature show. Liking this evil twin thing – you’re onto something!

  2. You go, evil twin!! Love the covert operations. 😉
    I sat here LMAO watching the honey badger video! OMG! Badass is right!
    Sorry the troublemakers are in jail and can’t go scarf up that corn. But I’d hate to see them shot by an overanxious hunter in the dark, too!
    I have to go back and watch the honey badger one more time….

    • Oh RIta, We should all watch the honey badger first thing in the morning. Builds confidence. Haha Love you. Terah

    I got a good giggle out of this post. I can just see those hunters trying to scare away the horses so they could get a buck. ha… and the horses saying thanks for such a yummy treat. teee hee. That is one for the troublemakers.

    • Hi Lisa, The trouble makers always have the advantage because I have their back. Thanks for reading and commenting. Terah

  4. Love this post. I bet those trouble makers love you!

  5. we all get into trouble sometime! Again love the story!

  6. I loved your story and photos. Your “evil” twin seems to have a soft spot for deer and other creatures. Maybe she’s not so evil after all.

  7. It’s a shame that your trouble makers disturb the hunters, absolutely dreadful 😉

    The honey badger is alright in my book 🙂

  8. Great story ~ I agree ~ let the hunters go elsewhere ~ I love my animals as well ~~ thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) CED

  9. Here’s one for the twin, the Honeybadger (good god, how did you find that?!) and the troublemakers….(and the buck!)

  10. This was the best way to start my day – a fun post from someone with a like mind! I don’t understand hunters (there are lots around here since I am in redneck country) so I applaud your creative way to handle them!!!! Glad your buddy is still there!

  11. Beautiful Terah. I love me sum Honey badger. I don’t get these ” hunters” either. It boggles the mind. They really don’t see themselves as jackasses but manly men. It’s a puzzlement. Big weirdos.


  12. You okay over there? Did you have a nice Christmas?
