New Video (Sσmε Sαy ~˜) - With Funny Bonus Footage!
All of this footage is from Tuesday and Thursday. We've been cleaning up the acerage before fall really sets in (and all those trees drop their leaves!) and winter soon after. My sister took Rose through the ditch (which is about a furlong to the next driveway) for the first time in a few weeks and Toby dealt with it surprizingly well - he only cantered and trotted about in a couple of circles for a short bit.
Bonus footage starts at about 3:09, and it's shows some of the funny moments that I caught on video. They fished an empty bucket that was lying near the fence and had to check it out. They also like to play with the crop, but Otis managed to ruin it today...
I don't really like this video as much as my previous, but I was relistening to a bunch of my old favourite bands and had to use this song. Aaand, also, a nice Finnish punk song by one of my new favourites (which probably inappropriate, lyric wise - I haven't bothered to translate or find a translation. But if it's by Kylähullut...).
Here's the YouTube description, which explains what's going on a little further:
Love your videos! :D
That's a cool dog! I really like the effects and you picked the right music. So many people pick the wrong music. Well done!
Thank you so much, both of you!
What is the story about the black horse? Me likey!
It was after that when Toby really snapped and developed problems with chronic rearing and bucking, and a complete distrust in people. So we decided to throw him out to pasture for a year and start again.
Five years later, and he's a very confident horse. We're able to groom him, lead him, treat wounds, and basically the whole lot with ground manners. He still has lingering fears of trailering (he reared up and got stuck in a manger while being loaded, and hasn't trusted the trailer since) and water/spray bottles, but these are things that are being worked through slowly, like everything else has been. He still has moderate seperation anxiety and weariness of strangers, but we're proud of the progress he's made. We've been teaching him to lunge again and we're thinking of riding him in the Spring if all goes well.
We like to brag about him being a very easy keeper, a gentle giant, and probably the most well behaved of the three (surprisingly!). I hope that he continues to improve - he's our resident fatty and I'm not sure we'll ever have the heart to sell him!
Oh wow. Poor horse. Can't blame him for putting his hoof down. He's sure a sweet looking horse. Good for you working through everything.
I can't blame him either. Or any horse, I can't blame any of them.
My sister can take ninety percent of the credit for working with him. So many years of work, even after she was put through so much trauma in watching him slip away.
