So this weekend my friend and I went to the Houston Rodeo!! It's the largest rodeo in the country and it was my second home for 4 years when I was in FFA showing my livestock projects. We went just to go shopping and eat food.
Gator(I LOVE IT SO MUCH)
Fried Cookie dough
It was crazy crowded, I guess because of Spring Break. I have honestly never seen it that crowded before. I wanted to punch quite a few people.
All I bought was a new purse, a new wallet(mine was literally ripping apart), and a sign for Heenie Weenie. :) Said sign is hanging up in my room cause it is just too cute to hang in a dusty barn. I think I'll order another one from Custom Stall Signs on FB for his stall sign at the barn. The guy at the booth asked me, "Is this for you or for a business?" "Oh, it's for my horse" "...Oh" LOL. Guess he doesn't get those that often. When I went to go pick the sign up he told me he hoped my horse enjoyed the sign haha.
We took the park & ride bus there and back. On the way back, our driver had no idea where she was going. After asking us which exit to take, we were nearly launched out of our seats a few times from her hitting the brakes. Then, when we got back, she missed the road to turn down to get back to the station. So instead of making a U-turn at the nearest overpass, she BACKS UP ON THE HIGHWAY. We all sat there with a deer in the headlights look and thanked baby Jesus when we got off the bus.
On another note, we took Henny for a walk yesterday. When he was gelded, I walked him down the strip of land that runs between the pasture and the large drainage ditch on the right. The grass is GREEN and lush. Henny pigged out on it for a minute or two before we went on to finish our walk. He'd gorge himself on the grass if he had his way.
(This picture isn't edited. The grass really is that green. Gotta love Texas ;) )
Annnd we took a million random pictures when we got back after he finished his dinner. He munched away on his hay while we acted like idiots bahaha.
About to go out in his paddock and eat
Getting Henny hugs
Acting like idiots. Henny wanted no part in our shenanigans.
Just a random thought. So far, I've caught 3 different families coming up to pet/feed Henny since his paddock is right next to the drive way. I don't really mind it as long as they don't overload him with treats. I've seen kids running up to him behind the fence and he never so much as flinches. A couple boys were disappointed that he wouldn't take their apples. He doesn't like them, but he loves his apple flavored Likit treat bar. He's a special horse, that's for sure. Henny loves the attention and the kids love it too. I would just be worried about them feeding him too many treats or him choking on them. Maybe I should put a sign up? I dunno, just something to think about.
