the dx ranch crew, shot for western horseman

Here on the ranch, we start all the colts we raise; and often hold some back for our interns to start. Since we have a gentle horse herd, this works to help build confidence in folks wishing to gain experience in starting colts.  We’re pretty proud of the crew we have here, and we know the old man would be too.
