We had a pretty good rain here so things are muddy again. Instead of going riding, I worked with Copper. One of my many goals is to be able to saddle him without the halter on. He gets an A+! Well, we did not have the girth on...I did not want to bring that saddle out because of the mud. Will do that on a more dry day to see how he reacts to all the stuff hanging down.
Anyways, after throwing the saddle on I tried to lead him out of the pen. He just did not want to walk thru the gate, so everyone else came in! We had a party! Everyone showed up except for the donks.
Even Chase the llama showed up and flirted a little bit. That still disturbs me.
Batman says: "PARTY!!!!!!"
Batman tried to help lead Copper out of the pen...
But this is as far as Copper got...that is okay...baby steps.
I was also throwing the Dummy Legs on him. I wish I got this on video because it was too funny! Something startled him and he took off trotting away from me, so I boomeranged those Dummy Legs his direction and they landed on his back! He trotted a few steps, I got his attention, then he stopped. It really was hilarious because for one thing, I don't think I could have aimed and got those things up there, and for another thing, Copper was just as shocked as I was!
We are working on putting stuff on his head. He doesn't like it one bit, especially when it makes his ear crooked!
Have not done one of these in a while...good 'ol self portrait!
I figured that whoever decides to adopt Copper should have a close up of his cute nose.
Remember that little chick that was a lot bigger than the rest? He is still big and he has quite the feathery beard. That little sucker attacked me the other day - TWICE! If he isn't careful he will be going to the stew pot!
In spite of the mud it was a fun night. I got horse time in, and I got some garden time in. Tomatoes are ripening like crazy! I need to make time to do some freezing.
Until later...Karen and Tripp
