Thank You Very Much - Wrangler Fail

Joining up with Kmama’s carnival for some free therapy!

 

To the sorrel who cannot stand to be away from his buddy… Thank You Very Much.

The next time you want to tear down a fence to hang out with Kona, I’m gonna kindly ask you to quit smirking at me from the front pasture, Thank You Very Much.

(This guy went through TWO lines of hot wire.  If that ain’t true love…)

To Itty Bit:

After hollering, “IWANNA HELP” for ten minutes…

You really gotta listen when I let you hang out to help groom the horse, Thank You Very Much.

(Don’t worry friends, he wasn’t in there with Joey)

When we’re done, and it’s getting dark out… I appreciate that you want to give me a hand in putting Kona away.

But Duuuuude!  When I say close the gate behind me, you really gotta CLOSE THE GATE BEHIND ME, Thank You Very Much.

Closing it, watching me turn Kona loose, smiling at her so she walks to you, then

opening.the.gate.right.the.heck.up.for.her

was not cool, Thank You Very Much.

 

And Kona, you know better, Thank You Very Much.

I’m glad you’re so addicted to our ornamental grass, rather than the cheap REAL grass that grows abundantly all over the yard.  So glad you were unwilling to budge from it and were somewhat easy to catch while you chomped down on the expensive stuff, Thank You Very Much.

And your timing was impeccable.  Trotting around the backyard as the last of the daylight disappeared and I had to keep track of an arab and a 4-year old wrangler at the same time was so unstressful, Thank You Very Much.

 

What are you thankful for today?   (Probably that you weren’t chasing a loose horse in the dark last night, eh?)

Oooh, yeah, definitely thankful I wasn't chasing a horse! LOL

Itty Bit charmed Kona right over to him, didn't he?? ;-)

Thanks for linking up!

Omgoodness. Sounds like the fun we have over here chasing a dog that escaped the fence because the neighbor kids don't close the gates.
Thankfully it has always been during the day.

I don't have any horse stories, but I could load you up with few freed cow stories around midnight on a major highway!

Sounds like you needed a drink when you were done! LOL

Ooh the cardinal rule...lol. If a gate is open leave it open, if a gate is closed leave it closed. Too bad Itty bit wasn't up on that yet lol. Been there though. You are lucky she went for the grass though. Try chasing 14 horses on the road. Not fun. Thank goodness we only have 2 now. These we have here look at you like you have 4 heads if you want them to come out of the pasture. They know where they have it good. Lazy they are. Kona is so beautiful though that you can't stay mad. I bet Itty Bit had fun though huh?

Get him trained up young, Rach. :)

Glad he wasn't in there with Joey.

Oh good golly! Yes, I am grateful I didn't have to wrangle any 4-legged creatures. My 2-legged ones are hard enough to keep track of. But, when a girl is hungry, there isn't much that will stand in her way.

I bet he look awesome prancing around that yard at sunset! :) I think I'd rather have a prancing horse in my yard instead of a cranky chicken!

Foursons said...

Oh man, I imagine the stress of dealing w/all that at night AND not being able to hear Itty Bit is bad. I don't know how you can possibly manage seeing everything you need to see and still get everything done. You ARE superwoman!

Absolutely GORGEOUS horses and a GORGEOUS baby boy! You can see all the way to his soul through his eyes! Thanks for stopping by to say hello! Have a great weekend. :o)

OHHHHH silly pony!! If it makes you feel any better I have had about a week of one of my yearling colts playing Houdini!! He would just get out of the pasture at random and be wandering around! One night last week the Hubby let the dog out then hollers for me to come look at something...Yep Houdini standing out in the yard in the middle of the night! That one ended with a little bit of rope burn for me :(

You said it! I'm am very glad I wasn't participating in any of those good times!!
