The scratcher (BED)

At 0930 I was walking, Stella threw a fit, but I needed the exercise. It took her a couple of miles before she settled. I was running from one side of the road to the other making like a cattle dog and horse. It is amazing the length we go too, to teach.

Just as the cows were arriving from the holding paddock the skies opened and down came the rain. It fair bucketed down and did unsettle Stella, add to that we put Kate, and she who must be obeyed, in front seperating paddock mates who had spent the week feasting on good sugar loaded grass. I tried to ride a 1300 pound sugar rush. Tossing her head, taking it to the ground, not a good place for a horse to have its head, it is normaly accompanied be the rider flying forward at a rate of knots, just after the buck. All in all she played up, stomping, laying her ears back, tail swishing and a new behaviour tossing her head back. Kate also played up. But a good ride over all.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

A couple of photos to prove I was not wearing tights or the get up male dancers wear.
If you look close at the first photo Stella is standing on my toes. The final word after an interesting day. On to the third me giving her a little loving even though she was a right tart and stood on my foot she deserved recognition of a job well done once she allowed me to ride. Last photo going home My place is at the top left hand corner.

Memory spark second photo, proof I am not wearing tights. Even Stella approved

Tomorrow more riding on the beach and bush but for Stella And Kate they are being feed hard tack with minerials and hay to push out the sugar they have consumed over the past week.

A two day drive comming up soon but it looks like I will be at work She who must be obeyed gets to go. Funny that.

The carrot bandit gave me the opertunity to steal a carrot or two from some unsuspecting sole.

While I was ripping of that unsuspecting person of a carrot or two some person of questionable disposition stole one of my carrots. Now I only have one left.

I think we should all gang up on who ever it is stealing my carrots, it is not a horse lover, most likely a rabbit person who has no business on this thread.

That's my bit of dribble for the evening, and I promis I won't do it again.

As always spelling mistakes are my property don't copy.

Oobiedoo: that is my heart horse right there.
I took him from his mommy the day her turned five months, 9 years ago.
I love him so much.

Good morning all!

CW - good luck with your move, hope it goes well and stress free.
Stan - your pics are great! And your outfit quite manly, am thinking "Man From Snowy River" with your chaps, duster and hat. The country there looks beautiful.
Susan - Congrats on yours and diamonds blues! What a great day for you two! I love that he's your heart horse, he looks like a sweetie.

Gave Kes the day off yesterday, and stayed home to prove to hubby I can stay away from the horse for one day. Went through withdrawals, thinking about her all day and hoping she wasn't watching for me to pull up in the truck to see her. Did I mention I love this horse? LOL! Am heading out today to clean her stall and hopefully go for a ride. The weather's been nasty, but there's some clearing this morning and hopefully it sticks around.
