Yesterday: So I just went out to visit, brush his tail and bond. So when I put him back in his field (there are 4 total horses in his field, Indian, Bubba, Sonny and Honor) I left his halter on, thinking it would be easier for the evening feeder if he happened to run in the wrong direction. So he went and started eating. When Bubba, the Hackney pony (yeah he's a pony and Honor is a 15.3 thoroughbred.) came up and decided to start playing halter tag. Seeing that Bubba didn't have a halter on honor kind of ignored it at first, then Bubba started pulling on Honors blanket then back to the halter. Well honor had had enough so he started biting at Bubbas face. When bubba started getting more violent Honor started rearing and bucking and biting. Then he just walked to the corner and continued eating, like nothing happened. Then bubba started throwing his head like stallions do and charged Honor. Remember Honor is in a corner, so I was just praying that he didnt get tangled up in the fence. Which he didnt. Honor isn't exactly the type to mess with. He's never gotten into a fight before, but he was a firey beast. Lol but he never started it, just waited for Bubba to come after him. So this lil routine went on for about 10 minutes, then Indian came into the picture (indian is bubbas pasture pal, their owned by the same person and have been together for quite the long time...not to mention Indian is a draft cross...) indian started pushing on Honor for a bit, then gave up and both Indian and Bubba backed off...So Honor won his first fight. :) with no injuries aquired.
So today I rode with my BFF Juliyana. While I was warming up I looked down and saw a small mouse in the dirt. Still alive. So I called Juliyana out to the arena to look at it thinking 1)shell freak out or 2) shell think its the most adorable thing alive. She loved this lil rodent!! And So did I!! It was sooo flipping cute. So we named it Fred, and she tried to capture it to show it to someone, so she put a helmet over it and the furry lil ball just ran out of it and ran away...we were very sad. But he will come back. Lol our lil epic adventure!!!
Just got back from the barn..obviously. Who ever knew that ground work was soo tiring?? I worked on squaring up and trying to get him to lift his head at the same time. It was a success. Ill try to post a pic on here in a few. Lol so then I started lunging him, and finally got him to walk on a lunge liine!! Yay, then I jumped him on the line at 6 inches and it was interesting. Lol well merry christmas eve to all!!
