Today my ma came out to the field (this one, excuse all the poop)
She told me we were going to do something exciting. But first we practiced flexing and picking up my hooves in the stall. I wasn't too worried because ma didn't have the trainer lady with her. But ma has been doing her homework..
(There is nothing exciting about standing in a stall, ma.) Then she took me out to the arena and told me to run around like crazy, so I did. Think I did a pretty good job of it, too.
Then she did do something weird. She brought in these two blue bright things.
First she made me walk through them. Each time I went through she made the hole smaller. Until there wasn't a hole. (Here's a clue ma, I can't walk through the gap if there isn't a gap. Just sayin) So I tried to go around, because that makes the most sense, right?
But ma said no no I want you to go over them (I tried to push the barrels out of the way). I said "You want me to WHAT?"
I mean, does she think I'm some kind of Olympic hopeful? Ok ok I'll give it a try, sos I can impress my new friend out in the pasture.
Then I realized that it was really fun! I mean, WEEEE! Right?
I jumped them every time she asked me to after that. THE END (Photos courtesy of ma-she's got mass skills taking pics and training at the same time)
