I was talking to my farrier about Henny's pedigree and mentioned Shots Flying Spark.
"Oh, you mean Shining Spark?"
"No, Shots flying Spark"
"I think you mean Shining Spark"
The old man at the barn keeps insisting I need to ride Henny. HE IS 10 MONTHS OLD. "So, when ya going to saddle him up and ride him?" "In another 3 years" "Naaah, you can do that right now!" I know he's joking(I think... I hope) but I don't much appreciate him egging me on about that. He also thinks that I should let Henny do whatever he wants any time he wants. I was talking to him while holding Henny and Henny decided to try and visit Prancer without my permission and pulled on the lead rope. When I tugged him back to me the old man said, "ahhh, let him visit Prancer!" "I didn't tell him he could visit" "Oh he just wants to visit! There ain't nothing wrong with that!" Sorry but I have the best behaved horse in the barn and he's not even a year old yet. I'm keeping it that way LOL.
What irritates me the most is when people ask to ride my horses. My 300~ pound friend wanted to ride my 11 hh pony.
She saw nothing wrong with it and she's been around horses all her life. I said, "He's a pony! I weigh 170 pounds and I feel bad riding him!!" That's where the conversation ended. And when people want to "put their kids on Henny." Lol no, I'm not ruining my horse so you can get a cutsie wootsie picture of your kid on my baby's back. Let me stick a 75 pound backpack on your 2 year old and see how you feel about that.
