Another Anti-Gunner Comes Out Of The Woodwork (or Bunk House)

So, another character caught me by surprise today.  I haven't had time to work on my NaNo because, well, I've got my required 50k and the last couple of days at work have been hellacious very busy.  I sat down to pick up where I left off with Shelby shooting VW Bear in the ass (boy I've wanted to do that myself for a long time).  Turns out that one of the wrangler applicants is an anti-gunner and cannot work in a place where there are guns on the property. 

I love that I can talk to Jay about my characters, because when I told him what Carrie (the character) told me, he looked at me and said, "Well, duh, the ranch is in the mountains.  Of course there are guns."

This is the shotgun that Shelby shot VW Bear in the butt with.
Damn I love that shotgun.

Sooo, I suppose Carrie is one of the better wranglers? (although most good horsemen I know are proficient with guns - not because they need them all the time, but they do have their place) What happens if a horse falls and breaks a leg on the mountain - or anywhere- how do you put it down humanely? What about scaring away that mountain lion that keeps spooking the string?

Carrie was one of the wranglers with "loads of experience. Every summer my parents would take me over to Estes a couple of times to go out on trail rides."

One of those experts.

Sadly, she was open to learning about horses, she was just a wuss about guns. Shelby's down to five; only one to cut at the end of Wrangler Boot Camp.
