Just have to put this in this journal....since my Snickers can always make me laugh. She has got to be the goofiest horse ever.
We were riding in the arena. I had my big boombox in there on a mounting block. This boombox is bigger than the one I used to carry on my shoulder in the 80's...lol. I wanted the challenge of not getting off of her and walk back to our tackroom with the boombox. I went to the gate to unlatch it. Snickers does this well and I figured she would just think it was time to go out of the gate once it was opened....well, she didn't she turned the opposite direction, towards the boombox on the mounting block. She walked up to it and then stepped sideways right next to it without me barely asking her to. I leaned down to reach for the boombox, which had Lynard Skynard playing loudly, and picked it up and rested it on her neck. It was way to heavy to carry in one hand and too big. Away we went......all the way back, kept the music loud and half resting on her wither. Once I got back to my tackroom, I was in a pickle....how to get off since I had no mounting block to reach down and place it on. So, I basically rested it on her neck with my left hand holding it and scraped my leg over her butt to get it over her....lol. She just stood there!!!! I laughed so hard and hugged her. She was just like..."Yes Mom, whatever you want, just let me know...."
I put this horse through so many things...always approaching everything like a challenge for us both. She always listens and tries and gets us through anything. My $400 pinto.....who her mother was in foal with her when rescued from a kill pen.
