|Hi Mom! This is my friend, Knox. He's the same age as me!|
|Look how pretty I am. Ooh, what's that over there?|
|I wish I could kiss Knox.|
Since Tessa was standing next to me, resting a hind leg, I figured she was probably right. So I saddled up. Laura had me put on a martingale for my ride, just to keep her from flinging that flexible Arab neck into my nose when she got pissy. Our ride was mostly uneventful. It had some crabby moments and some great moments where her trot was forward and she practically pulled me to the other side of the arena. She did want to hang out with the other horses and would slow down whenever we got close to one.
|'Does this martingale make my head look big?'|
So, to recap quickly, the only major change in my pony's life is that she has not been living outside for almost two weeks. She has had constant companionship with the horses next to her and gets out in the arena, but she was worked much less this week than normal AND she was in heat and she was so pleasant and easy going. I really think that she just wants the comfort of the other horses close by all the time. Or she's growing up. Or she actually loves being inside??!! Maybe she's a freak of nature horse.
Now I just need to figure out how to get this hair out of this saddle pad.....
