|Jack and me guarding Kat & Margee|
After all the drinks and rolling some of the horses decided to play in the water. It looked like a lot of fun so we thought we would give it a try. That's me on the left just getting into the water and Jack already in in the water (he is a curious guy, he even went on top of the bank jump later). All was going well until Jethro came towards Jack making a nasty face and Jack decided to make a break for it. Sometimes he doesn't think before he acts... he ran right into a spot that still had some soft ice on it and he got real nervous hearing the noise and feeling the breaking ice under his feet. I heard Jackie saying something later about how she hoped it didn't make Jack afraid of the water because event horses have to be brave about the water jumps. Hmmm, this eventing stuff sounds interesting.
Since was 1:00 and we hadn't had breakfast yet and Jackie thought we had enough excitement for the day; we got put in our stalls for lunch and a nap. I hear that new fence materials were delivered today and when it warms up a little they're going to replace the old stuff so everyone can go out at the same time but in separate groups. Something about being safer and hormones?%$#?
Looking forward to warmer weather so we can be out for longer and have more fun.
As usual, Jill has covered it all. We had a lot of fun and it was the first time that we ran fast! I heard that Kevin told Jackie that he liked the way I galloped better than Jill. Don't tell her.
The deal with the ice was a little scary. I won't do that again; I learned my lesson.
Hoping for warmer weather and more fun too.
