My cousin from the Cayman Islands came out to ride Biscuit today. Hubby got in the pasture with them and was petting Biscuit who turned and trotted off when he brought out the halter. LOL he started galloping around the pasture, snorting and hauling hinney. The pasture was soaking wet and woooooops! Down he went on his hinney and slid on his side for a bit...jumped up and kept going. Tail flagging and having a great time for a few minutes - then he stopped and let Barry put his lead rope around his neck. He is just full of beans, hasn't been handled and full of energy. My cousin's dad (my mom's first cousin) said he was a nice looking fellow but he thought he was a little chunky!
My cousin saddled Biscuit up and rode him in the arena and for the most part he was a very good boy.
My son, his girlfriend and her 3 year old daughter came out so that Mazlyn could ride. LOL she was not in the least afraid! She was ponied on Sarge twice and Biscuit once. I think Maz will be my riding buddy one day. 2013-05-11 13.31.02.jpg 2013-05-11 14.45.21.jpg 2013-05-11 14.59.22.jpg 2013-05-11 15.12.19.jpg
