So... I got home from a miserable afternoon of holiday shopping...where I got too much stuff for myself and not enough stuff for the people I was supposed to be buying for.....
Ri was out. Again. He climbs right through the RAMM fencing. Scrapes his back legs too. I called to him to follow the truck home for dinner but he chose not to. So I thought, OK, I'll start feeding and just call him, he'll come. Nope. Didn't come. So I grabbed a halter and got in the truck and drove back down to the edge of the pasture. He was gone! I drove through the field and back up to the barn and looked and of course started to freak. Finally we spotted him at the edge of the wood line so I got out of the truck and called to him. He trotted right on up to me like an angel. I started to pull the leadrope into my hands so I could put it around his neck but the darn thing was stuck in the truck door so I turned around to open the door so I could pull it out and then walked to Ri who spooked at an old tree stump and raced around like an absolute moron. He crashed through the brush and splashed through a creek and then flew back over to me...before spooking at... You guessed it, the tree stump. Off he went again. Flash, my old hound must have heard the comotion becuase he came on down to investigate. Took one look at the horse, then one at me and sighed... Barked one of those long sad barks and headed towards Ri. Ri bolted on down the driveway with Flash trotting along behind him. Flash stood at the door of the barn until I drove up and took over... Brat.... I don't know what to do with him. Geuss I'm doing some fence work tomorrow....although... the fence is pretty taught... UGH.....

Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
