Shyloh has been weird lately. . . not sure what her problem is. She does not want to be caught and is really giving me the hardest time, again, with that. She is acting like a feral horse and it's actually pissing me off.
Jaime and Kyle are completely unable to catch her to fly spray her or fix her fly mask if it gets off. When they go in the pasture she runs in the far corner, tossing her head.
Shy is being standoffish to me, as well. More than usual. And jumpy. I thought about riding her the other day, but she was being so jumpy so I chickened out. So I did a running braid in her mane instead. She was super happy about that. . .
|Those are happy eyes, no really. . .|
We have continued our trail in hand work and Shy has been doing great. I wish I had more obstacles for us because we both are getting a little bored with the stuff we have been doing.
|Posing where we sidepass|
I reintroduced the tarp, which she hasn't seen in a long time. It was no problem. In fact, even in her sassyness, she is still funny.
|Hurrr, I can tarp!|
Shy is also under the impression that is is much taller than her 13.3hh. So tall, in fact, that she was convinced that she could not walk under the cross ties with a Shire in them. That explains why she longingly stands by the gate to be with her big drafts and ignores the minions she is stuck with, she is convinced she is at least 17 hands! Much too big to hang out with ponies or give them the time of day.
|No room for a Haflinger under here. . .|
When not being a sassy, standoffish, too big for her britches mare, Shy has been busy making trouble. She cannot stay out of her grooming bag, and I can't seem to remember to keep it out of her reach. Especially when I leave her to go talk or get something out of the barn.
|She has some serious issues. . .|
She loves to dump everything out, then look down on me as I have to pick everything up,including all the rubberbands from the bag she ripped open.
|Whatcha doin' down there?|
We have been doing a little of this, a little of that, but it all seems like not much at all. And it is a little depressing. But we carry on.
**And, don't forget about the Guess the Breed Contest we have going on!**
