Friday Funny

Thanks everyone for the comments on my last post. Peggy and the horses are doing well. DaVinci and Comrade came away with some weird crud, but the others came away unscathed. Peggy had to be careful the following days to not overheat again.

After that long ride, those four horses definitely had ride time credit. I was going to focus on the two that did not go, but one day I just needed a quite, easy ride. So Rosemary was elected.
Trail Ready, complete with sparkles :)

She is such character and never fails to make me laugh. I came toward her to fly spray and noticed her standing funny. It is amazing how some horses can turn their legs. Her back legs were almost completely pointing to the left.

Left???.... Right???
When we came back from our trail ride, she focused on my lunch bag. I don't know how she knew, but she figured out there was a banana inside that bag. At one point she had her nose inside and only me calling her, stopped her from getting the banana. I told her she had to wait until I ate my part. Then she could have her part of the banana.
Someone found the banana

I have managed to ride Roscoe a couple of times in the last week. He is picking up the bit again when I tack him up, a really good sign. He is not shaking his head or throwing it up at all. His teeth must have been bothering him a lot. Roscoe was happy when I let him go for a trail ride. We are finding our groove again. I think it is time to contact the instructor I know. Roscoe did not feel like posing for pictures though. Ah well next time maybe.

"Hey Mom, I think I see Peggy in the house!"
