Lucas met a bag of carrots for the first time today, I know I am a bad horse mom, but I don't treat him as he used to be mouthy. He came off the track, so I think it was probably his first carrot, he is 8.
But he was so good yesterday for the dentist and I went to the grocery store before the barn. I called him, his head peaked up but he didn't move. So I walked to him, and gave him half a carrot, he wasn't sure what it was at first and just sniffed a good while, then he got it. I walked back to my BO and my beer, my barn is kind of relaxed and as long as you are not riding, there are beers in the fridge.
Thump thump behind me, Lucas is trotting up behind me. I am suddenly The Best Person In The World.
He didn't get mouthy, and as long as it stays that way, he can have more.
