My husband and his friend went for a 3-4 mile ride yesterday on our property... It went SUPER FANTASTIC GREAT!
Dumas didn't fight us to get his bridle on! (major victory for the two legged) He was calm and happy.
Twister was a complete gentleman not throwing his head... (minor victory for the two legged)
They were on their way back to the house and a STOOPID hen turkey was nesting down in the tall grass and blew up about 5 feet in front of the horses!!!!!!!!
Dumas spooked and bolted to the left...... Twister spooked and ran to the right and both Bill and Donald were left behind in the dust! It all happened so fast that neither of the guys knew what happend! They said that there was no falling it was all landing!! (major victory for the wing-ed)
They said they fell like someone jerked the rug out from under them..they never even had a chance to hold on. THANKFULLY both guys were just fine and they had no problem catching the horses. We all had a good laugh about it.
