Sometimes the only thing I can say are "Hee hee hee!" because I am so excited!

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!

Great work...and Boom is SO shiny too! Let us know how the walk goes...can't wait to hear. We took Cord and Valero for a walk thru the neighborhood last night. Only had one idiot moment and that was when some car came BLAZING up on us and I had to stop them! Valero settled so I motioned them by a minute later.
