She wouldn't be what some would call a "hot blonde", but she's definitely a cutie.

doglover, that looks 1337 as hell. What's that from?

FTFA:
"He's a very large horse - 18 hands high. That intimidates a lot of riders. But I've always loved big horses. He's kind of high-strung and spooky, the largest of our wrangling horses. I like a horse with a lot of spirit, and I was really glad to be on him that day."

I'll be in my bunk.

Weird, most women are hot when you cover a large portion of their face with darkness.

Headline: "Wrangler charges griz to save boy in Flathead"

How much did she charge the griz, and is that ethical, charging for a rescue?

I actually like that one more - It's honest and definitely down to earth.

If she saved me from being eaten by a grizzly bear, she would be the most beautiful woman on the planet.
 
2011-09-21 11:02:51 AM  
It was fortunate she was on such a large and obedient horse; as she mentioned in TFA, most horses only want to run from a grizzly and no amount of training or encouragement by the rider will change that.

Don't get your hopes up Farkers. I doubt you'll get a date. She knows how to scare off a 700lb drooling hairy animal already.
 
2011-09-21 11:03:12 AM  
She could make a fortune with that horse in Tijuana.
 
2011-09-21 11:03:12 AM  
we have a horse like that, it is a full blooded Percheron, a bear would be wise not to be kicked by an almost 2000lb animal that can run 30 plus mph, there's some serious power behind those feet.
 
2011-09-21 11:04:03 AM  
I don't think a sparkly smile and attractive boobs would have fazed the bear quite so much. She's got guts and reacts well under pressure. Much more valuable attributes.

/The horse too, but I don't date out of species.

Fire Marshall Bill.

She is cute and can handle herself in a really tense situation, which is more than I can say for a lot of people. She'll have a story to tell at the camp fire for the rest of her life.

And, as an 8-year-old boy, that would do exactly what for you?

When the bear cavalry invade from across the strait, they won't be so easily repulsed.

I'm not familiar with how bears naturally react to horses, but with one swipe of a bears paw a horses legs could be easily broken, if not severed and left to bleed out.

I'd probably carry a decent rifle or pistol with me if I had bears on my trails.

I'd wrangle it.

in my experience their natural reaction is to haul ass, but if a rider can convince one to get close to a bear feet will be flying. You can carry a gun if your horse is bomb proof but the lady in the story was saying her horse was spooky.

I hope she knows now how foolish it is to ride horses into bear country without a good supply of rocket propelled grenades and a launcher.
 
2011-09-21 11:12:30 AM  
well, I'm impressed!

Which would still spook untrained horses.
Anything with enough kick to stop a Grizzly is going to be loud as shiat.

I prefer the "not handling" approach to handling bears. When failing to encounter bears, this method helps avoid the risk of serious injury- these risks including not getting mauled, not getting bitten, and not being left for dead in the middle of the woods.

Good use of the HERO tag :) Great story!!

I'd probably try to cop a feel as I gave her a thank you hug, then tell all my 2nd(?) grade friends I touched a boob.

Whether she realizes it or not, that woman is riding what amounts to a medieval warhorse, and I'd be very surprised if it didn't have a very similar temperment

I always found large caliber pistols to be very effective at stopping bears dead in their tracks. Plus, bear meat is not that bad, so you get a month full of meals too.

Oh. Spooky. As in 'prone to spook'. I missed the reference the first time.

Large caliber pistols also (as has been pointed out ad nauseum by the TFA and other posters in the thread) scare the shiat out of horses.

/I mean, it totally makes sense to fire a loud and large gun directly near the head of an animal who's back you are on.
 
2011-09-21 11:30:45 AM  
I want that harse! Could give a shiat about the blonde 've got a woman. But that harse is freaking awesome. Take that pure bred horse snobs!
 
2011-09-21 11:30:49 AM  
"...a fire-breathing blonde..." that may be one of the greatest visual statements ever written. I LOLd for awhile over that.

You have shot 1000 lbs of meat, but you can only carry 100 lbs back to the wagon. Also, you have died of dysentery.

Then train your horse to not freak out when a gun goes off. It ain't that farking hard and is done quite a bit around where I lived.

Yeah, nobody ever fired a gun from a horses back before. The idea is just ridiculous. I can't think of one single time in history where that ever happened.

I think she's hot in both pictures.

What funky looking horse though. Squat and bulky like a big Dwarf.
