Sun was a great day! I got to spend some time with two of my favorite girls. First I got to go for a walk with Jill. Since she hadn't been out for a walk before I led the whole way except when we got to the stream. Kyle wanted to see how she would do by herself. I got to say I was impressed, she walked right through the stream. So I guess you're not suppose to jump the whole thing! So I walked through the stream too and it was much easier that way. We spent some time playing in the creek and munching some grass before heading back to the barn.
When we got back to the barn Jill went in and I got turned out. I noticed that Laura was riding Kat in the dressage ring. I let out a whinny and ran down to join her but decided against it since I would have to pass near the big boys. I ran down several times and at the last minute ran away. Finally I got brave enough and went down and the big boys didn't bother me at all; they were too busy trying to find grass to munch on. Anyway when I got down there I just followed and followed Kat as she was being ridden. After all that running around I got a little warm so I had a great roll in the sand and another roll and another roll. Finally I decided that I would just eat grass instead of following Kat all of the time. When she was done I followed her over to the bank jump & I followed her up and down like I did with Jackie the other day. Kat & Laura tried to get me to go down the bank into the water but I wasn't too sure about that but I did follow them into the other water jump. Then they tried to get me to follow them down the bank into the water jump again and this time I did it. That was fun!! The rest of the day I was out with the big boys and I'm beginning to get use to it, but I still spend a lot of time hanging up around the barn by myself but closer to the girls.
Yesterday was another good day as I got to go for a walk with Jill again. But before we got to go for a walk I had to learn another rule. Apparently it is not acceptable to get all excited when Jill leaves the barn before I do. Sorry, I just couldn't help myself ! Anyway we had a nice walk and did a different bank jump. It was a little bigger than the one I had done before and I figured out that it was easier to jump up with my hind end rather than try to walk up one foot at a time.
When we got back Jill went in the barn and I stayed out with the guys. I actually was looking for them in the pasture and when I located them I took a canter down to be with them. I guess they're not so bad. At least out in the pasture when the make a face at me I have a lot more room to get out of their way.
We were way out in the back of the pasture when I noticed Jackie & Kyle coming down the hill with Pip (my new friend) and Margee. I could believe my good luck, I hadn't seen Margee in quite awhile. So I started following her around like I did with Kat the other day, but when I got too close I was chased away by either Kyle or Jethro. That didn't deter me, but I was a little more careful not to get too close. Then when Kyle rode Jethro I followed him around too. I'm not sure why but I did.
