Kiss that dang boy already woman-
And not the one with the horns and the cute bad boy hairdo- the shy one that's occupying the part of your brain that makes you feel giddy when a text comes in. Posted via Mobile Device
GUYS! The job went SO well!!!
I LOVE IT. It was so so good. The perfect combination of people AND horses. I can't wait for next week!
The horses. They are not my favorite "type" of horse - they're the kind that are "dead heads" but are constantly just trying junk, just to see what they can get away with. No motive behind their misbehavior, just "I know this is wrong, what will happen if I do it!! " stuff. I'm sure I'll get used to it. Lacey's just a 'correct her once and watch it never happen again' type [my favorite!] so it's a switch. But I'll be ok.
Maybe it's a gelding thing. They only have geldings there. I suppose it makes sense, but you know. I'm a mare person! Haha
Speaking of mares, Miss Smartie here decided to try to get her grazing muzzle off, I presume, but did not succeed. However, instead of just shaking it off the rest of the way, like a normal horse, she just left it on and let it hang off her ear like a weirdo. She was even still grazing though it, quite happily I might add. She's a HUGE dork. :)
One day, cakemom! One day. :) I hope.
Also, at this job today, I got to snuggle a 4 month old Newfoundland puppy!!
ME TOO, Maggie!! The puppy snuggles were such an unexpected bonus! Haha Good point about the school horse thing. -.- They were much better with the original horse handler/walker person so hopefully they'll figure it out once they know me more.
Thanks RC! :)
Just a few photos:
This one's from last Saturday - look at her mane!!I'm super excited about how well it's growing in. I'm half excited for the winter, when it'll get to be down all the time! I've been braiding it up because her neck gets SO sweaty under it otherwise!
I got some pallets yesterday for the goat fence and it apparently became naptime while I was working.
This is maybe the third time I've ever seen Lacey laying down, other than to roll, so it was pretty exciting!
She even let me pet her neck for a second, but that was too much pressure, I guess, because she got up immediately after that :(
