So...we went to the Arabian show, but after taking about 10 pictures that were either blurry, or too dark, I gave up, and jumped up and down on my camera!!! Just joking, just joking, but I don't have any pictures that turned out, so you will have to take my word that we went..."we" being Amber and me.
In my last post, I was complaining because it was 90 degrees and humid...now it has been about 55-60 degrees and raining!!! I am just NEVER satisfied with the weather around here, am I??? Because it has been raining, the horses have had their lightweight blankies on at night, so when the kids and I arrived at Amber's house today, and took their--the horses of course!!--blankets off, Pig Pen...I mean Bo, promptly rolled in the muddiest spot that he could find...before we haltered him. The kidlets are sure going to learn good grooming technique when they have Bo to learn on...teeheehee!!!
Anyway, my question to you is this: How can a horse go from looking all muddy, round, fat, and cute..like this...
...or this....(less the mud here...the kids really worked him over good!!!)......to THIS!!!???? Sometimes I SWEAR that Cabalero SF is half Arab and half moose...lol!!!! I'm sorry Bo Bo! I just couldn't resist it! I sympathize with old Bo Bo however, because I am not very photogenic either.
It's harder to catch Waska not looking his best. He usually looks like he is trying to figure out what the little peanuts on his back want.He has the exact same expression on his face here--even has the same ear cocked back!!!--as he does in the picture above. I was able to get my little cowboy in a Dressage saddle today...I still cannot believe it!!!! I told him that if he likes riding bareback, he would like riding in an English-type saddle. You can see the look of utter confusion on his face in this picture. "What just happened??? How did I get over here...on Waska...and in this saddle?"
He did a good job though, and I told him that he can compete in Dressage, or maybe eventing, in the Olympics one day, and do you know what he said to me??? " Moooooooommmmm....I told you that I am going to be a steer wrestler... or a roper!!! I'm NOT riding Dressage!!!!"
It was a nice dream while it lasted! Hey...I know....maybe Katie will be in the Olympics one day! What do you think Katie?
