o.O Confused...

So, Jerry, my lovely horse who refuses every jump he came to, now apparently has a passion for jumping.

On Sunday, he was doing flying lead changes over jumps, and today while I was free lunging him, he jumped over a pole on the ground and changed his lead to the correct one.

This is awesome, but what happened to my horse? lol. One day, he was like "Aw, crap. I have to jump that?" and now he's like "HELL YEAH! JUMPING!"

It makes me laugh.

Anyways, now that my horse seems to enjoy jumping, I'm pretty excited for the hunter/jumper shows this fall.

LOL! Guess he just had a change of heart? Anyway, have fun with him! I always love when I can feel my horses excitment while were doing something =] One day we were doing a jumpers course and he was jumping around throwing in playful bucks and snorting and just being adorable...I laughed the whole time Horses are too funny and sooo unpredictable sometimes!

Maybe the other horses were making fun of him for not jumping?

Hahah, that sounds like he's had a lovely change of heart for you!

Glad things are working out.

Maybe he had some pain before that has been taken care of so jumping is no longer painful.

What does o.O mean?

At Alwaysbehind: It's like a "smiley", just using computer keys. If you look carefully, it resembles a shocked or surprised face. (hint: the eyes are the o's and the nose is the . )

At AngelWithoutWings: That's really great that he loves jumping now. A change of heart, in a good way. I hope you have lots of fun with him, and let us know how the shows go.

I'm glad he's had a change of heart. Perhaps he was just too stubborn to do it when you asked, so now he's making it HIS idea. Horses are silly that way. =]
