Jesse: my poor human has been run off her feet lately and hasn't had a chance to post our activities in the past few days. After our last post the human did some groundwork I may have overreacted a bit to a couple of things. I know the human did all of this stuff a long time ago, but I am a little more wary now. Can I really be blamed for being a little scared of saddles being tossed at me and a rope going around my butt? I got over it though and then she led me around from Dude's back again we walked and trotted then my other human came over to visit, he called her a chicken, then got on my back we sat there for a minute and he got down. After that she decided she had to get on, her and I moved around a bit I was only a little bit nervous and maybe a little confused (it has been a long time since I was ridden) she didn't ride for very long, but we were both calm. The next day we went home it was thankfully much drier than when we left, it finally feels like winter is over WAHOO!!! We made it clear how happy we were the other day when the human came out, she came in to catch someone and we ran and bucked back and forth across the pasture inviting her to come play too! She didn't seem too happy about it though. Eventually she caught Trinity and led her over to Buddy and Rea's pasture then those two tried to get her to play too. Eventually she just gave up, oops I guess she had somewhere to be.
Rea: so the other three got to head off on a vacation, or something and we got to stay at home, the first day they left the wind was so strong that it blew the dang fence over! Bud and I just stayed put, we had feed and water there, plus if I would have gone out I would have had to visit my son and I know he would of tried to grab a drink. It is time for him to grow up and stand on his own four hooves. When everyone came home three days later the humans fed Buddy and I lots of treats and called us the best horses in the world! That was an unexpected bonus I guess they didn't notice that Buddy drooled in the water trough, and the state of my mane.
Just look at that fence!
The humans put up some temporary electric fencing until they can get some bigger posts in, I am a little disappointed in them we should have proved that we can stay put without that now!
Assassin: Lately I have been giving the humans shows every time they come out, reining maneuvers, airs above ground, leaps and twirls, I am magnificent! I should say every time they bring a camera, I cannot allow them to record my performances. Perhaps once I am all cleaned up for summer I will allow it, who knows by then the human may be so desperate that she camps out next to the corral with a camera all day.
Dude: Lately it seems that I only get any attention when I am helping out with Jesse, oh well, at least I'm not being worked to death and I still get fed.
Trinity: The human is persistent in her pursuit of groundwork perfection, I resent this, it is a lot of work and I would just rather not behave. It is hilarious watching her feet leave the ground for a second every time I gave a good tug. I even went so far as to pull the lead out of her hand and go for a brisk trot down the road, she came and grabbed me and put me back to work. She is just too darn stubborn, she makes things so much harder for herself, if she would just relax and let me make the decisions for her we would be much better off. I finally relented and stopped trying to rear and drag her around then she got on, I slowly keep giving her a little bit more control under saddle perhaps one day she can prove that she is responsible enough to call the shots but that day is NOT today. She must not only be able to keep me safe but be capable of showing my incredible talent off to the world. When we got home the humans seemed quite upset that I stretched the wire out on the fence, it wasn't my fault! They put the top wire on too low for me to reach through so my withers were stuck when I pulled back. They went and grabbed a few things and, you won't believe it the fence bit me the next time I went to reach through. Rather annoyed with this as I knew it meant I could be kept on a diet I tried to bite the fence back. DO NOT DO THIS it hurts! Electric fences are evil, and the humans are incredibly cruel to me by keeping my locked in one and not feeding me as much as I would like. On the plus side the grass has started growing!
