The fact that the horses mostly had halters on makes me think they were recently transported. Most people won't leave halters on a horse long because they tangle up and catch on things.

Somebody likely took the horses somewhere to sell, where they got loose, or dumped them.

What are you going to do with them?

There I fixed it for ya.
I see a lot of horses in halters running along fences with T posts. It's a great way to see blood and gore.
Same as handling a shod horse in flip flops but it's done every weekend

Actually it's super common practice around here to keep halters on horse for months at a time. Also alot of folks will add a length of stout rope to the halter some the horse purposely steps on it, apparently it's supposed to make them easier to ride or something. Honestly just seems ignorant and lazy to me but then Shaun's the horse I've ever had basically just walked around with the cows their whole lives so what do I knwo

My wife would have been in heaven! Wanting to keep them all. We keep halters on as long as they don't have shoes on in the pasture, when they get shoes the halters come off, had a friend's horse get there shoe caught in a halter some how and die. May have been a freak accident but we don't take chances... I hate horses the wife loves them, what momma wants momma gets though. I used them as leverage at trapping time and I want to spend money!

Leaving a halter on a pastured horse and "we don't take chances" are polar opposites.

grin Golf Ball, I have lots of riding miles/years to go ! I am in my prime, and anyway, there is a technique to that swing up .

That , howevah, doesn't apply to the huge warmbloods I rode in Olympic class dressage and cross-country jumping. Bailey, from Ireland, was 19 hands tall . The only way I could get in the saddle was with help from a stair stool , truck bumper, fence rail, or a leg up from a fellow rider .

If they're not too tall I can do it wink

Some folks leave that dragging rope with the thought of it training them to stand "ground tied" if needed. Others do that in hopes they can catch them easier. Either way, a recipe for disaster.

I carry a big sharp knife in my truck just for the occasions of finding a horse with the halter either stuck halfway on their face with buckles frozen from rust, that they have to be cut off. Sheesh....

I will go ahead and say it Sharon, there are lots of people who have economic success in the city, buy a rural acreage, and stock it with animals they know very little about. Horses turned out in halter's that have buckles rusted shut would be a good indication of what I am talking about.

I carry a folding knife with a serrated blade, it comes in handy if when the wreck is on. Horses hung up to a post or bull riders with a spur hung to the top of the flank rope (where you cannot get to the slip knot), or a calf tied hard and fast to a horse who has lost his mind when the rider got off and missed the flank are times you either have a knife in your hand or it is too late.

No doubt , you saved a lot of grief using that knife when it was needed, Hoss.
