We got to the barn and had to find the horses first, so we waited for our friend who was mucking her horse's stall out to finish and then we headed up to the ten acre pasture, which is of course the farthest away! Haha! After getting there, we called out for the horses and the mustang and one of the Appaloosa's (Chip) came running first, then came the others. Last but not least came the lazy Red and Dixie, the 23 year old Buckskin. My horse is such a gentlemen! He stayed next to her, walking slowly for the majority of the walk, then after being picked on by one of the head honcho's of the barn, he took off towards the barn with the rest as us humans walked with Dixie.
Our friend stalled up the rest of the horses and picked out one of her horses to ride. She rode Patches, the other Appy. She tacked up Patches up front, and I tacked Red in the round pen, knowing I wanted to work him a little before going to the trails.

|He has such kind eyes! :)|
Oh, here's a picture I forgot to upload, mom took it while Red was trotting with his friends...I swear he's dancing.
