    I wrangled for a guide back in the 80's we ran 10 to 12 head. They sure made life easier we could hunt places where no one else was.

    I normaly keep 4-6 around for mostly just trail riding and hunting. I try to do 2-3 week or longer trips a year. I'm always looking for horse people who want to go on summer pack trips to look over new country.
