YOU HAVE TO READ THIS POST! IT IS HILARIOUS!
Ok, where do I begin....
I went out to play with Eddie this morning and we had SO MUCH FUN! We did some weave and I really waited until he was thinking about it to stop. After about 4 times he stopped and licked his lips and looked at me (Question!)
Then, because things were going so well, and it was REALLY nice outside, I got on. We rode into the paddock and I got all my equipment. Bareback pad, hackamore, helmet and so on. Then we went back out and did some more weave! We walked through them, then backed through them and he did great! He did have the 'druthers' towards the gate, but we played with it and evened everything out=if he did something right, we would head to the pedestal, which is by the gate. Yay! His backup was interesting, I got to a phase 4 and he still wouldn't move. Oh boy, time to use my savvy! Wiggle, wiggle, wiggle my feet and a few steps, release, Viola!
Now to the funny part...
Allison took Scout in the round pen to play at liberty. But he ducked underneath the fence! =-O Loose pony alert! I hopped off because I knew Eddie would get right brain. I opened the gate to the dry lot (we were riding in the pasture) and by the time I did that Eddie had worked himself into a frenzy and Scout was in the backyard. Eddie went flying into the dry lot. Eddie saw the gate was open. Eddie is now free too!I run after Eddie! Two loose ponies!!!!!!!!!! My sister and I were so right brain, it was hilarious! Things would have gone so much more smoother if we were calm. hehehehehehe! But the good part is Eddie just trotted/jumped frantically and went to find his missing Scout. Scout could care less, he was digging the lawn grass!!!
Too funny. But that's pretty good, it's the first time a horse has gotten out in the last 2 years.
I ended up catching Eddie and we went back in the pasture after a quick drink and a breather. We did a bit more cloverleaf (half a cloverleaf) =-D and then stood on the pedestal and ended there. What a goof! Scout's a goof too!
Had to share with ya'll.
Have a savvy day everybody!
