He must have been missing you...a little TLC from his moma was all the Biscuit wants & needs.

LeynaProof it looks like the horses really enjoyed that water crossing! Cool and refreshing makes me want to drive down there and join the ride!

Great pics. I forgot to tell you I was in your neck of the woods the other weekend picking up an older horse for my daughter. We were in Red Bay. He is a 20+ bay gelding qh that is turning out to be a great addition for her to ride and allow me to have Trusty all to myself. Lol Just needs a little more groceries in him.
Lol. That is actually the lady I ride with. She is like another mom to me. And it was very shocking to see the water that high and that strong. We have been going to this ride for 6 years and never, not once has the river been that high! Haha.

And that is great! At least you do not have to share your horse anymore. Glad he is working out.

It was very nice! There were some pretty good spills also! All horses and riders are fine, but the play by play pictures of them falling is fantastic!

Am I the only one who thinks that crossing water like that (if those waves are from the current, and not just horses splashing) is just plain insane?

LeynaProof - omg those pictures are FABULOUS!!! Thanks for sharing those. Looks like it was a fun ride.

Roadyy - glad you got a horse for the darling daughter. Hope he works out.

Biscuit will take a little work. I am constantly stunned that he reverted to the spooky horse I bought 2.5 years ago. I took him down to his pasture today to eat his food in the little pen. After he was through took him out and was letting him eat grass. A huge black horsefly landed on his shoulder and he rippled his muscles to move it. I reached over and lightly smacked the fly. OMG Biscuit shot away from me sideways like I had hit him with a cattle prod. I am working with him with the Parelli game one. I took him back to the barn and got out the lounge whip and held the popper and rubbed it on him. Gave him a treat. More rubbing and then popping it on the ground. That made him a little uneasy...another treat and more popping. I then was swishing it back and forth in front of his hooves and that made him uneasy. Another treat and calm words. I ended by putting him in the arena, taking off the halter and he followed me around, stopping him and rubbing his face. He would turn his head to his shoulder to avoid my touch until I would talk calmly to him. It is like starting over.

I talked to my cousin today and when Biscuit laid down in the water this weekend with KD, she tossed the reins over his head to cousin's hubby while KD was dumping water out of her boots. Kellie said Biscuit was pretty upset when she did that.

Back to square one every day. It took me a good 6 months to get this horse's trust when I first got him and I have to start over! Dang!

My guess is it won't take near 6 months to get him back where he was....not sure, but I think he'll remember once he starts being rode again regularly....

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I hope so Gunslinger. I am nonplussed by this behavior. I go to the doctor in 10 days. Woot!!! So hoping to get the ok to ride. Hopefully Biscuit will remember I am his best friend

Yeah, I hear your horse getting swept off its feet, you and him/her washing down the river, getting smashed against rocks, breaking bones & eventually drowning is just SO exciting.

Maybe the rivers are different where you're at, but hereabouts one that looked like that would be pretty darn dangerous.
