I just had to try out Estes' new headstall. Lucky for me, the horses are in a pasture just fifteen minutes away from the lodge and Mom and Bill always take treats when they visit, so they eagerly look forward to cars driving up the road toward the pasture.
I set up her bridle at the lodge where it was warm, using Ashee's as a measurement guide so that I wouldn't have to fiddle fart around with it out in the cold. In order to keep it warm, I hung it around my neck like a necklace and buttoned my duster up over it. Forgot to get a picture of me wearing my horse's bling, but you can see me take it off in the video to put on Estes.
Bill and I went for a very short ride, but I could have spent hours wandering through the pasture. RockCrawlinChef and Mom went with us and acted as camerapeople and we thought it might be - you know - rude to ride off and leave them behind.
There's kind of a bobble with getting me mounted up on Estes. Bill apparently really wanted me to kick him in the head, but we got that straightened out and when he boosted me up, he practically threw me over her back. Thank goodness the batteries were low in the Flip so it turned off before Mom could see me hanging off the wrong side of my horse.
So, here's 1:54 of happiness...
Still pics tomorrow.
