Sometimes, when I do new things, I am able to channel my inner Arabian. . .
|Creeks don't bother me though|
Like when I am taken on a bareback ride to the back fields. In a pretty headstall that is not mine. With a bit I have never used before.
|It's so purdy|
Haley wanted to hop on a horse real quick and I was the perfect mount because I am close to the ground. She is much braver than Allie as she rode me outside the confines of the round pen. I was a little bit like, uh, I am not used to this but I will try extra hard to be good for you, even if I am a bit scared. I did a couple quick steps a few time from being scared, but over all I was good. I really do try so hard. But with someone riding, I have to be extra careful to care care of them and it can be nerve-wracking!
|I am much more relaxed here and looking quite cute, if I say so myself|
Another day, Allie walked me back to the same area. You know, the back fields where I have been many times before. A new, giant pasture is up there and almost ready for horses! Allie let me roam about it because I don't bother fences and the electric wasn't on yet.
That is a lot of space for us!! I tested out the new pasture to the fullest.
First, I ran about it checking things out.
|Lots of room to stretch my legs, and I even got out a buck!|
Then I rolled to make sure it was acceptable rolling ground.
|Works for me!|
And finally, I tasted the grass it had to offer.
|Sparse, but tasty!|
|Also, my tail is gorgeous!|
Then I made Allie chase me around because I didn't want to leave! The new pasture is Shyloh approved! Two hooves up!
