The poor ponies were in for two days due to this dreadful rainy weather. I usually don't carry the camera during turnout, especially with Blue, as he can be a handful requiring constant attention. The other day, Blue reared straight up and held the pose for a second. It was awesome, but I didn't have the camera! I was hoping for a repeat rear. He and Jess love to romp in the field when they are first turned out but only after the mandatory 'play like a pig' game in which each tries to be the muddiest after lots of rolling. The rain finally let up and due to the high winds, the ground wasn't too soggy so the footing was decent. Jessie being an all American Quarter Horse continues to have that amazing buck in her that I find amusing. It wasn't fun when I first got her and she pulled that stunt once while under saddle, but it is cute now that she is retired and going on 26 years old! I love that horse! Blue likes to rear, buck, kick, and rock back and forth, sometimes with all four hooves off the ground. Silly equine teenager full of antics! I am blessed with these 'babies' and love every minute we are together. By the way...look who I spotted chasing my deer... that beagle! It allowed that 'strange lady who just yelled at me' to pet it, but decided to return to the scent and catch up with the black lab who completely ignored me. Typical black lab!
