Yesterday, I was at a barrel racing clinic, with my horse Red. We had the clinic at an indoor arena, because it's not nice enough to work outside (actually today, I'm not going back because it is blizzarding!!).
So we ride our horses in the morning, then we take a break to eat lunch, and give our horses a break. There is a commons area, that has windows that look out into the arena. There was an open spot right by the door that goes in and out of that area, and that's where I tied Red.
He's very, well, curious, so I positioned myself in a seat where I could see him through the window. And actually, he was often looking in the window at us!
Well about 10 minutes into our chit-chat over lunch, and the door handle starts rattling on the door, as if someone is having a hard time opening the door ........
I look up, and I see Red's neck stretched to the door .......
The person who was closest to the door, goes to open it up, thinking someone is having a hard time getting the door open. She opens the door, and Red peeks his head in.
Everyone starts laughing!
I said, well he is VERY friendly and loves people. I guess he just wanted to join us!!!
So that little stinker probably watched people go in and out of that door, using the magic handle thing. He thought he could just open that magic handle thing and come on in and join us.
