Last week I had a fairly good morning and it was cool, I took a chance and climbed on Gilly. I only rode for half an hour, my body wouldn't let me ride longer, Gilly was good so he made it a good ride for me.
Kim's new horse has a new name, Messina. Nice name and it seems to fit her well. Below are some pictures of when Gilly got to meet Messina and Kim riding her.
Gilly and Messina first meeting. Gilly was really arching that neck to impress her. No squealing in this photo.
Yes, Gilly is a lot bigger than she is, he is a big boy. He must have been getting ready to lick her again, he loves to lick his friends, silly boy!
See what I mean. Here he is grooming her and she thought is was pretty nice. She did spend some time grooming him too. Lacy, she just stayed in the background and wasn't very interested in joining the group. We found out later her back was out, when the chiropractor came a few days later. No wonder she didn't want to play, she was hurting.
Here is a shot of Lacy and Messina finally being friendly and no squealing here. They are much better now, not very much squealing at all now. Lacy used to be the top horse in the pack but now Messina is. All she does is flick an ear or harden an eye and Lacy moves out of her way. The reason Lacy had back problems, she was kicking and striking out at Messina all day, Messina just moved out of her way. Silly horses!
Pictures of Gilly strutting his stuff for the ladies. Poor boy they really didn't pay that much attention to him.
Pokey got a hair cut and he thinks he looks pretty good! I do too, what do you think?
I am hoping that when the weather cools down and my meds kick in that I can do more riding maybe next week. If I do I hope to get more pictures to post. Maybe I won't be so lazy and can post more about the happenings of me and my equine buddies!
Keep an eye out for more posts.......
