Red was on the other side of the fence napping with Bay, so I clipped his lead on and took him out front to see how he'd do, closer to her. He was totally chill with it, but bothered by flies, so I fly sprayed, brushed and sweat scraped him. Man it was hot today. The poor boy sweats so easy anyways, you would've thought it was about two hundred degrees hotter. He was acting comfortable despite that, so I decided to hop on bareback and ride him around to see how he'd act. We rode around for a second then stopped right in front of Annabelle and both of them barely passed each other a glance. Red got some lovin' out of C and mom and took a nap. We cantered up and down the hill a couple times, in the grass, and he was pushing for more speed. He *really* wanted to burn some rubber, apparently. Even though it was hot. We stuck to a canter, though. ;) His sweat+my not so sticky jeans=a slidey rider. :))
|Goin' up!! And man I love his bubbly buttox. ;) ;) ;) Nice to see a BLACK, HAIRY tail again..|
|Cantering down the hill. Wish we were closer.|
|Trotty trotty trotty.|
After we were about done with the cantering, we pretty much sat down near Annabelle and chilled out to talk. C complimented Red's halter. I heard him tell mom something about how great it was that I always wanted to be with my horse, stuff like that. Hahaha!! The boarder now knows that all I want to do is ride. Lol!!! Which, pretty much true...
|I LOVE him in this picture...just wish the cars weren't back there! :) And yes, I'm sitting like a jockey. Why? Because I can.|
|I love this one. He's in mid "neeeeigh!"|
Also, I decided to catch some Z's.
|Red was pretty sleepy too.|
And while Red IS pretty fantastic, I'm sure y'all want all the deets on miss. Annabelle. So here we go!
She is 22. 15.2. Chestnut. Thoroughbred. Retired Race horse, did place. Jumper/Dressage horse. Soon-to-be retired.
She is a VERY sweet mare and I look forward to hanging out with her. :)
