|"Blue, Donnie & Dusty"|
We finally had some decent weather this past weekend, temperatures in the 70’s and lower humidity. Dusty and I managed to ride. I’m happy to report she is still standing quietly at the mounting block. I even mounted from the four-step block in the outdoor arena just by swinging my leg over and picking up the stirrups once I was in the saddle. The statue that is now Dusty never moved an inch. This is getting scary but I could get used to it. My daughter rode Grady and he was awesome. Afterward we loaded the tack into the mule and deposited it back in the barn then headed back out to distribute some well-deserved treats.
Here are some pictures of the herd being themselves:
|Mellon "If I could just figure out how to start this thing we could be the horses from hell"|
|They've successfully subdued the mule and extracted the empty treat container|
Now to figure out the next plan of attack
Grady "Hey, Nate do you think there's any treats on the roof" Nate "I dunno, let's check it out" (These two share a brain)
|Grady & Donnie discover hay in the bed of the treat-mobile|
|Blue being Blue and not getting involved with the rest of the beggars, he'll just wait for his slaves to hand deliver his treats to him|
|Dusty "Did those stupid boys leave anything for me!"|
|Sami "I just know there's more in here somewhere"|
|"Looks like the party's over"|
