And as you can see, she was quite pleased that we took her along. (Not so with Bo!! Can you see his ears??) Amber used to pony her on rides a lot, but now that she has kidlets who can ride and drive her again, she kind of stopped doing it.
Do you notice anything else unusual about these pictures??? Yes?? No??? Well I am riding Waska and not Bo. Amber had taken him on two long rides, two days in a row, and didn't want him to hate her, so she asked me if I wanted to ride him. Gee thanks Amber...let's make him hate me instead...lol!!!
Amber took a big risk in buying him really, because she was going off of what I was feeling from him and not what she was feeling...because she couldn't ride. Anywho, I guess what I am trying to say is that I like Waska's energy a lot better than I like Bo's.
Don't get me wrong...I still love Bo Bo, and will continue to ride him (unless I can convince Amber to let me ride Waska forever...lol and just kidding!!), but he puts off a kind of frantic, frenetic, energy (similar to the way I used to be, and the energy I can still put off when I am stressed); whereas Waska puts out a calm, soothing, and relaxed energy (similar to the person that I am now). Something for me to think about, eh?
Look at Sienna warning us to get back (below)!! Isn't she just the cutest??
I mean, I was riding Waska in his rope halter and galloping for Pete's sake, and I was not worried about anything at all. I honestly think that this is because Bo is extremely chargey (I know...not a real word!) and he puts out that chaotic energy, which then makes my chaotic energy react. Make sense???
Waska on the other hand, just gallops freely and easily, causing me to stay relaxed. I was really amazed, because I had just written that post about galloping, and here I was doing it with no inhibitions whatsoever. Weird, huh??? Kind of a cool realization too though....
Well...thanks for bearing with me here... I am off to study statistics and social policy. I will try to get out and catch up with your blogs between now and Sunday. I have skimmed some of them, but have not had time to leave good comments. I promise I will be back...lol!!!
