Big Berts Revenge

It was hot this morning and I intended just to bring Bert and Stewie up to the barn, play with Stewie for a while, then give Bert a small groundwork session, then turn them back out again.

Hiccup number one, Stewie totally refused to be caught, and wouldn't follow Bert out of the field either, so in the end I just left him and took Bert up.

Put the training surcingle on her and her bridle, and took her into the round pen to work on a little long reining...............WELL madam acted like it was her first time in the rig, and was a real pain. She wasn't calling for Stewie, but after couple of minutes she decided that she couldn't possibly go past the gate without balking.

I don't know how long we were out there, but it seemed like hours, just to get her to trot one full circle on each rein without balking, swinging round, coming at me (I thought we had got over that one ) As soon as we got one nice circle each way I stopped and made much of her, but we were both covered in sweat, so I though I would treat her to a hosing down.She didn't think so much of it to start with, but seemed to enjoy it in the end. A nice walk and grazing in hand to make sure we had a good end to the session, then I turned her out, she literally walked two steps and

Stand clear I'm going down



And over



Right over





And up



And shake



That'll teach you to wash me, I like being dirty and dusty!!

That was the first thing I noticed too!! Haha! But what fun pictures! I love watching them roll. My grandpa used to tell me that for every full roll they made (from one side to the other, no half rolls!) they were worth $100. So if a horse rolls over completely 3 times, they were worth $300 and so on. I like to count when they roll, it give me a good laugh and makes me think of him.

Stewie isn't a foal - he is a monster! Cute one though.

All I pay my psychiatrist is cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day!

We were brought up on that as well, but I wonder what $100 then would be worth now? I always count how many complete roll overs they can do, Bert did 2 there, which is just what I paid for her

My gpa always said that too. With the market in the tank it may be fairly accurate still lol!

I count a grand for each roll :)
