I halter him and off we go to the arena for some plain old horse time. I am very lucky that he never trys to bolt away from me when I unhalter him in the arena. He simply walks away and begins the business of just being a horse. 1st up...the roll! Now he is sooooo fast at this that I barely got a shot off. He went completely over 2x and then just layed there gently moving his backside. As he began to rise I got this picture.
2nd up is the BIG SHAKE! No... not another earthquake.
Now that Jesse has finished his personal needs he will soon be off to his favorite pastime. And I am embarrassed to say that he will now circle the arena several times...stopping to sniff all the poop he can find, each pile several times while making his rounds!
I can't believe I kiss that muzzle...over and over and over!
He sees me reach for the halter on the fence and is NOT ready to get out of the arena and now does bolt so fast that again I can't get the shot. But the ones I got are a glimpse of how fast he was going and how bad I am with my new camera!
Sliding stop to a roll back???
The picture is blurry...but it is a classic Jesse pose! You can see how dirty he is. 45 minutes of grooming and a clean blanket before he's back in his stall for his dinner. Apples, carrots, raisins, frosted shredded wheat, oat cookies mixed with his feed!
We both feel better now!
Your Desert Rose!
