Abby and I went for a walk today! (Pic heavy)

So..it was really nice today and I didn't work, but I couldn't ride because the vet was up yesterday and the majority of the horses got their teeth done and chiro. If they got chiro, they were also give two days off work, so no riding for anyone. I couldn't waste an entire nice day, so we just went for a walk. It was probably half a mile down the road, then turned around.

It went well for the most part. When we were leaving, her friends were calling for her, she only looked back once and then kept going. Halfway down, she started getting scared by her own shadow and the water in the ditch from snow melting. Cars that drove by? Nope. Water and a shadow. So she would stop and throw her head up like some kind of watchdog. Silly girl.

Also, she's a Paint, but the only visible markings she really inherited from her mom is sclera, so she looks terrified and/or some poor tortured beast all the time. If she actually is scared, there is notably more white. She's a spazz.

Annnd after our walk, I let her go into her pen to eat supper. The pictures from a low angle, I sat on a flake of hay. I don't mind smelly horse poo muck stuff, but I am certainly not going to sit in it. :P



"Oh, I see you have a camera. Allow me to sniff it." I do love this picture. She actually looks cute.





She has the funniest little spot on her nose. I thought it was dirt for months until I tried to rub it off one day. I also appreciate that she has one black nostril and one white.


SCLERA!





She has to tear apart her hay, one flake at a time, then flip the pieces all over and eat what's left at the very bottom.


Smash the hayyy!





Omnomnomnom.

Someone nearby was whistling, so she had to run over with a mouthful of hay to investigate.


"Hi. My name's Abby and I have a big stock horse butt."


"Why are you still whistling? What do you want?" I usually whistle to call her, so I imagine the constant whistling annoyed her.


Trot awayyy! I caught her right before she lifted her tail higher to poo..




Trot away againnn!




No, Ma, don't go!

I love the last picture. her nose is adorable with one white nostril and the other black. Lovely photos! Looks like fun :)

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

Thanks. I wish she'd shed out more so she's actually yellow again rather than her awkward shade of..orange. And then her dapples will be everywhereee!

I had fun except for stopping every four steps to go "You. Are. Fine. It is water in a ditch. Okay, on that side is your shadow. Let's go or I will leave you here alone." That threat worked pretty well. Haha.

Hahaha. I have conversations with her based on her facial expressions to what I say to her. The people who live around the barn had to think I was insane because I stood on the gravel road in front of a house's front windows trying to show Abby that shadows were not going to eat her, looking like I was talking to myself the entire time. Haha.

I forgot to take a picture of her draft hooves. She has monster feet. Especially compared to the halter horses at the barn.

I also missed her changing breeds. A couple weeks ago when her outside friends left her, she would freak out and call to the inside horses while standing like a Morgan stallion. She did it again while looking in the direction of the whistling. Head straight up, back legs camped way out. Silly. I called her an Arabian today for running around while she pooed and had her tail way up.
