I was bored today (yesterday now, hehe), my internet was being stupid, reading "The Nazi Persecution of the Gypsies" is fascinating but depressing as all get out. So after catching up on some sleep after being up literally all night at a friend's house I decided I needed to go hang with the ponies. I have not got much exercise at all since my last gall stone attack so I figured some running around being goofy would be good for me. And for them. Plus I have not had time to do much of anything with them recently because of the health stuff and blahblahblah, so I kind of miss them.
So I decided to do something I have seen other folks do, and drag a tarp out of the big barn to see how they reacted to it. As I was dragging it out I realized either cats or some other vermin had urinated all over it, and it reeked.
This was the initial reaction as I brought it to the gate.
Sparrow says, "What the... !!!!":
OOooooo what is THIS? Something scary or a new toy?
Both boys think it smells funny.
Sparrow didn't like it when I was moving it around, though:
Brego seemed to like walking on it. A lot.
Mary got bored with it really fast and came up behind me to hang out. I ended up using her to lean on. This was looking down at her while I was slouching back against her:
The boys got riled up but not without me running around first to get them going.
A break in the foolishness:
A pretty slow trot around the barn lot:
He was really moving out and decided to go through the scrub willow patch:
I still just have to pinch myself to even believe he is mine. Man I love this horse so much I can hardly even stand it.
I have a few short videos but I can't get them to load properly because my connection is being a jerk tonight, but I did get this one up:
Please excuse the logs laying around. They are too big for me to move by myself.
