The past few nights with Boom have been a few minutes of rubbing and touching all over. It has been rainy and muddy again so I kept the 'lessons' short.
Tonite I found a few dry spots in his pen so we worked more on rubbing all over plus a little bit of this!!!!!! This is where the "Hee hee hee" comes in! :-D
This is no 'dummy legs'.....this is ME!!!!!
I spent a lot of time jumping up and down on my bucket, then jumping off. Then I gradually worked my way up to his back. He did fantastic!
His left side was better than his right. On his right side the first time I hopped up I slid off real quick. The second time I stayed on a couple of seconds, then reached down to rub the side of his belly and he hopped. I 'rode' that one out, then he hopped bigger and I was 'nothing but air' for a little bit. I felt like Michael Jordan when he would go for that basket then hover in the air a little while. Okay, I didn't feel exactly like that....but it was pretty darn cool! I hovered in the air, then landed on my feet! We went right back to the bucket and did it again....and again.....and again.
I was so darn excited how the night went! This weekend is supposed to be nice and sunny, so a walk outside of the pen is in our future! Woo hoo! Little by little he is letting me share his world....and he is choosing to share mine.
A day or two ago I got home from work, jumped out of the truck, and almost landed on this snake! It was not very big.
I like snakes, but only when they don't surprise me. It sure is a pretty little thing....
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
Until later...Karen and Tripp who is not impressed with the snake!
