Cool One Cool Message

I thought I had better start a journal since I keep randomly posting pics. Welcome to those who actually take the time to read it.

All sorts of names crossed my mind for the journal name, but Sonny's racing name seemed the coolest.

Of course Sonny will feature greatly, so will Inca. But any/all horses in my day may feature at any time!!

LOL I feel a bit self-conscious writing here. Odd when I don't when posting to Confession time!

I'll kick off with my first pic of each of them.

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

And today I brought them out the paddock to give them their feed, one at a time. Bit of a pain but just how it has to be atm.

Sonny first then while Inca was out the others hung round gate. When I first went into paddock both walked towards me which was nice. Inca now associating being caught with nice things. First couple of times I had to hoon round paddock to catch her lol.

Sonny got his front leg over rope and started to freak so i'm telling him to stand still and he seems to actually listen as I pulled lead through. Good to know he has a brain in there!!

Sonny got himself bailed in the corner by bossy Buzz and nearly got put through the fence to the neighbours paddock! Buzz goes up the hill a bit and Sonny back to gate thinking he might have wanted a bit more feed after all. Buzz lays ears back at 10 paces and looks at Sonny and Sonny is out of there quick smart. Old Tess gets in Sonnys face ears back, shake head and he doesn't bat an eyelid!!

Buzz makes me anxious because he wants to boss the other horses even when you have them on a lead, so they want to get out of his way. When you shoo him he will leap away but buck his hindquarters at you. A bit freaky, even though he hasn't lashed out it does not make for a calming time. Buzz is the horse my sister rides. I wish she had kept BillyJack, he was much easier to be around.

A couple of pics from today

The mane and angle of pic make Inca look top heavy!!

Thanks Change. This is my sister & BILs place. Sonny has enjoyed just being a horse. If he has ever seen such big paddocks it would have been before going into training most likely.
