First of all, if you havent seen the Kitty Cat Dance video, you need to now or else you WILL NOT understand anything I'm about to say...
Heres the link. Enjoy.
Okay... So, onward with what Im about to say...
I was in the round pen today with Cricket and I've noticed that she works SO MUCH better if I'm constantly talking to her. I don't know why, but we both just seem to relax and go with everything so much better. So, I've been singing the Kitty Cat Dance song to just about all of my animals... Yeah... Don't ask.
So, our round pen has a cover that goes all the way around so the horse can't see out. It's a "Bull pen" or a training pen as some people here call it. So we were in the arena and I got Cricket into this REALLY amazing trot, but she couldn't hold it. So, of course, I started talking to her and she calmed down. Her trot was AMAZING and I think I got just a little too over the top and I started singing:
"HORSE? She's a Cricket horse! And we trot, trot, trot, and we trot, trot, trot..."
Beautiful-ness. So I started singing again...
"HORSE??!?!?!?! She's a Cricket horse!!! And we TROT, TROT, TROT, and we TROT, TROT, TROT!!!"
She's doing so great! I'm REALLY enthusiastic at this point!
"WEEE SAY SEXY THIIINGS TO OURSEEEELVES WHILE WEEEERE TROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTINNNNNGGG!!!!!!!!"
>< Never again.
So about three minutes later I decide, "Hey, she's a good girl... We'll go on a little ride around the ranch for some butt muscle build up..."
Yeah no... I open the gate and were walking out and theres a LINE of four or five people. My eyes widen and I turn BRIGHT red. They all start laughing their butts off at me. They looked like they were about to pee themselves. Howdy neighbors, nice to meet y'all..
The really sad thing is, I've only been here for about a month and a half and I've only ever met TWO people. All these people I had never seen before. Ever. And the even sadder thing, when I come out no one else is ever out. No one was even at the ranch when I started working.
