She's Young and Feeling Good
Oh, my little Mustang got wild again. (It's her age--babies are full of it).
A month of doing what she wanted, when she wanted, and picking on the pony, made her too big for her britches.
Mama (me) went into her stall to groom her, and she gave a little warning kick out with her hind, then ran out of the stall in a hissy fit. She proceeded to run, bounce and jump around her enclosure--which is quite large now--like a snow bunny with hooves.
I must admit, I was impressed with her new found athletic abilities--the larger enclosure has done a lot to get her legs under her---maybe too much.
When I'd approach her, she'd rise up in front about a foot and strike at the air, then turn her butt, buck up, and run.
Wish I'd had my camera right then, but it was soon over. I closed off her stall to keep her from getting back into her food, and pushed her around the back end of the run. Eventually, the game wasn't so fun anymore, and she licked her lips and let me approach and halter her.
She's still a big baby. And I have to say, she's gorgeous--really something to watch.
I'll take out my camera again tomorrow and see if she wants to play. She has the farrier coming Friday, so I need to get her under control!
The picture I have is after it was over and she was back in her stall.
Oh, someone said they heard on the news that Spokane has gotten more snow than any other place in the U.S.
And, there was a headline this morning in the paper that the bad weather is driving people to SMOKE! Anyone got a cigarette?
