An UGLY lesson

Do everything possible to stay out of the middle of two hungry horses...

Don't be fooled by the smile. I'm still a city girl who is not crazy about getting quite that dirty.

See... Kona is usually the boss. She gets first dibs on her dish of beet pulp, then Cassie waits for hers. Only Cassie's been a bit impatient lately and deciding she wants to compete for it.

While I don't enjoy watching the horses chase eachother and make faces... Kona is pretty safe in regards to humans. She gives them a wide buffer and never acts agressive toward a person.

Cassie... she's just all about the food.

In getting the first bucket dumped, I realized that Cass was coming right at me with no signs of slowing. So I started yelling "BACK" at her and she unfortunately was in the same mood my 2-year old gets time-outs for.

She kept on coming and Kona started to head her off. My boots were stuck in the mud (which meant that my feet were kinda sorta stuck there too).


Next thing I know I'm getting broadsided by the big lug and getting WAY too close to her rear end for comfort. I stumble for balance and keep up the yelling (which as you can tell, was highly effective).

And in mid-yell... Cassie veers in front of me and bucks.

and sprays MUD all over me.

I mean... all over me.

My sweatshirt is covered, my neck, my cheek, my jeans, my boots. An inch thick on Mr. Daddy's hat. I pull my jeans out of my boots and more mud spills out. Luckily my mouth was wide open yelling, so I could enjoy spitting out mud for the next 15 minutes.

Guess who didn't get any grain tonight?

Hey Mr. Daddy... want a kiss?

You look so cute! I love the glasses. Sorry you got all muddy, but atleast you didn't get hurt. That could have been bad.

Stacy said...

Those dang horses, eh?? Well, at least you didn't get hurt...the dirt just washes off!

Hi Cutie Rachel! Got your comment on my blog about the name dropper on Fugly. Thank you! So I had to go check it out and couldn't contain myself which I usually can't so no surprise there. But Thanks for letting me know about it. That poor horse!

See you and Kona soon! You'll have fun riding in the arena. I hope your burn is better! Wow!

Ah horses, I'm wondering about their manners lately. ;)

Ah, horses :) I have two mares that like to bicker over feed, so I started carrying a dressage whip, and making them stay away from me and the feed tub until they will stand quietly about 10 feet off. Then I move off and then race to it lol
