|"who ME? I'm just very tired and sleepy!"|
|There's a reason that one of his nicknames is Eeyore.|
Red: I MUST TROT.
Me: No, you need to walk.
Red: BUT I FEEL WIND AND NEW SPURS I MUST RACE!
Red: OH MY GOODNESS IS THAT A BIRD?? SIDESTEP TIME!
Me: No, Red, that was a bag that we pass every time we ride here.
Red: But it's windy and it's SCARY THIS TIME.
Me: Be good or I'll get the crop.
Red: Oh, crop? I'll be lazy don't worry.
Spirit had a bit of a "oh shoot I'm gonna die" at the plastic bag as well, but they got over it. Both of them really wanted to run, I'm blaming it on the weather, but on the brightside, Red was really responsive to the spurs and was working on leg pressure a lot better. I'm thinking that these will help me with backing and side-passing since he refuses to do those things. ;)
"A" "AM" and one of A's friend's were also riding in the fruit & berry patch but a different area, so we ended up passing them once and Red was like "Oooh mares! I must show off!" but actually settled down really well after I let him trot it out. We loped once and trotted a few times, if it hadn't started raining, I would've taken him to the 4 acres and just let him loose but oh well.
|Mane mane mane mane mane.|
|Hello sweet eyes!|
Untacked, put Redman in his stall and gave him a treat. He smiled as soon as he saw the camera. Lol!
|Sorry for quality but he always shakes his head so it's hard to get a good picture. :))|
On another note, Spirit has actually become a really good horse and while he has his baby moments (he is only 8) he is actually getting way more mature and trusting, woohoo!!
We also are having a new farrier out, a woman this time, because we feel like Spirit is a bit scared of men and he keeps getting worse for the farrier as opposed to better. Oh well!
