What a Rodeo

What a day it was!! I played with Scout and Diesel in the outdoor and they just had a blast! They ran around, burned off some energy and just had a blast! Scout would run, make Diesel canter and then Diesel would wait until Scout passed him up and would bite him on the butt. Oh my goodness, it was so funny!
Mom and I were laughing so hard and just having a good ole time.
 Scout did get a little scared towards the end. Well, a lot scared. There was a plastic bag rolling around and it freaked him out. So we got Diesel out of there (he went out on the pasture much to his delight!) and let Scout and Eddie run around. Eddie was in a paddock (which is adjacent to the outdoor) and we finally got them calmed down. Mom took Scout to calm him and I haltered Eddie and calmed him down.
As you can see from the pictures, they had so much spunk today, so it was a little hard to get them to quiet down. But A) Eddie isn't good for long distances at a run and
 B) Scout settles down when the other settle down. And Diesel really doesn't care. ;-) lol!
But after that, they were fine and went back to eating their hay. I think both of the horses enjoyed it though (Diesey and Scouty that is). Diesel is a lot more confident now and Scout just likes to run. Spring is in the air and the horses are a feeling it! The trees are buddin and bloomin and flowers are growing!

 Before we played with Scout and Diesel, I played with Eddie in the pasture. Well... He sort of played with himself before I got a lead rope and 'held his hand' to play.
He ran around quite a bit and was very skitterish, so we didn't do much, but we had fun anyway. We walked over the cavaletties, stood on the pedestal and went for a walk around the track.

Look at that turn! The gal who owned him before us did 'barrel racing' with him, or so she said. He can turn'n'burn, I've seen him do it! But I think he just likes doing it when he's energetic and exuberant!
Oh, such good horses we have! Every day we have so much fun with them and they always have something up their sleeves (or socks) to surprise us!

1 John 5:14-15
14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
