There's No Place Like Home

Mom posted the pics of the horses' homecoming, which left me with the videos.  I'll do a real post in the near future, but for mostly Mom's your viewing pleasure, here's the video she managed to snag in between snapping pictures.


Here's a very abbreviated video montage of Ranger playing Wild Horse.  It really is a game for him; I'm pretty sure he stopped and laughed at Bill a dozen times.  He would stop, turn to look at Bill, lick and then take off again.  It must be payback for Bill embarrassing him on the trail during the summers.



Love how Ranger unloaded on command (okay, Mom's right, all of their horses unload on command.  Estes? Not so much, but we'll work on it.)



Estes started the herd off with her own snow pegasus, but we missed it on video.  We couldn't believe that she would chose to roll in the snow instead of the dirt, but then Ranger followed suit and Eli wanted to, but chickened out.

Fun videos! Don't you wish they always had clean, white snow to roll in? Well, maybe not. Snow all year would get a bit old!!

LOL @ Bill's comment, ha! Love that 45 second mark where it looks like he's ALMOST caught, then jets again. And all the horses are just standing around watching the show.

I cannot imagine how Ranger thinks Bill embarrassed him? Was it because we loved his renedition of "You Can Tell I'm A Cowboy"?

Bill, you have GOTTA get that horse his own snack whistle. My girl will leave GRAIN to come to get something from my hand when I whistle :)


She loads and unloads on command too - thankfully I didn't have to teach her ANY of that *whew*

And that last video - PRICELESS! So wish you'd caught Estes too!

Looks like a very happy homecoming.

It looked like a big game to me. Poor Bill. I hate when a horse makes me look foolish like that.

Estes rolling in the snow is too much. Don't you just wonder what was going on inside her brain?

Cool! Love the videos!! (GREAT music!!) Ranger was full of himself, that's for sure, but unloaded like a dream.

I was going to ask...Exactly how abbreviated was that video?...LMAO. Ranger is totally doing that on purpose.

the snow pegasus was SO cute! Eli totally did chicken out.
