Even though we got busted we didn't get into trouble, in fact by the time she found out we had already done our grooming, picking up our feet, leading up and down the aisle and going in the wash rack for the first time. Kyle even put a saddle on me again today. All of this was after Jethro go put out with us and actually compared to come of the other 'meet & greets' this one went the smoothest. I think it's because he KNOWS that he is the boss of the herd and he has already told us hat on more than one occasion in the barn. Even when we all trotted off and & swung my butt and kicked our and accidentally connected with Jethro, he didn't get mad at me.
We were out for a few hours quietly eating but the quiet was disturbed when Kevin and Laura came out to ride and Jethro snuck back into the barn and they put him in a stall. Jethro started screaming for me and I must admit that I did call back to him. Then Dave started up a tractor right near us and we got all excited and we were anxiously watching the tractor when Jackie wanted to bring us in. It was a nice day and we were busy watching the tractor and I didn't want to come in. I told her I didn't want to come in and when she wouldn't listen I pulled back hard enough and started running down the hill and got the lead rope away from her. I heard he muttering some not so nice things and I decided I better go with her with no more fuss. So I got the talk again today about breaking the rules. I was on extra good behavior the rest of the day.
Kevin and Laura got back from their ride and Laura spent a lot of time grooming Kat. It's been a long time since they have seen each other and they both seemed to be enjoying themselves. Then I heard her and Kyle talking about splitting up the hers because Jethro becomes too possessive of the mares. Here I thought it was me he liked, but I guess he's that way with all the girls. Anyway since there are 8 horses, 3 mares and 5 geldings they were talking about putting Pip with the girls because he really doesn't have any friends with the boys and that Jack would go out with the guys. I'm not sure if I like that idea and I know Jack won't like it. He kind of depends on me and I know he really likes Margee and Kat. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
Hope we have more sunny warm days like today!

Well Jill just about covered it all except I heard what Jackie was muttering under her breath. She called Jill a 'tank' today! Lucky for her she does a pretty good job getting back in Jackie's good graces.
I think it's pretty 'sweet' that I will get to go out with all three of the girls without any of the guys to chase me away ;)) What did I do to get so lucky?
