I have competed on punk for the last two years in the NYSHSRA in barrels and poles. He runs a consistent 24 sec. pole run without being pushed. This summer I ran him three times because I have taken up roping instead of barrels. It's not fair for him to sit in a field when he could be at a rodeo. He handles crowds good, runs in and out of alleyways, baths, and trailers. You can leave him tied up for hours. UTD on all shots and farrier.
