You may remember me? We met many years ago.
This is your horse, Hudson.
As an extra incentive to get you to hang out with me, I’d like to point out that I have dirt on my butt.
And I do believe my coat is getting…dull. I may also be developing a slight case of thrush.
When the foal came, I thought, THANK GOD: Jane will have something else to dote on! She’ll ignore me, throw the tack on, and we’ll skip right to the part that includes galloping.
I had no idea you could dote twice as much.
What rider, when short on time…grooms?
I need a moment to gather my thoughts. I thought I knew exactly how I was going to discuss this issue. Ah well. Perhaps tact is over rated.
Since I’ve already hacked into your computer, I’ve left you a brand new welcome screen. You’ll see it when you boot up in the morning. On it, you will find the barn’s address and phone number, complete with Google map, and a large, detailed, photograph of yours truly, tacked up. You will not be able to access your hard drive until you click on the carrots.
You will not be able to access your blog until you click on the Mrs. Pasture’s cookie bag.
Um. You do remember how to ride, right?
I heard Bella shocking you with the story that I would not let her catch me in turnout. Yes. I deliberately acted out of character, knowing she’d mention this.
Attention, please. I need to be ridden. A lot.
Bella just came home from the World Weight Lifting Championships, where she not only broke the former world record in dead lifts, she set a new world record: 320 lbs. Since she was the former world record holder, this means she broke her own record. (BTW, Congratulations, Bella! YOU know how to work. P.S. your trophy cup would hold a large amount of cookies, and look stunning in our paddock. Perhaps you would consider displaying it with us?)
Sorry, I digress. Point: The first thing Bella did when she came home (after carrying her trophy into the house) was RIDE.
Could we learn from this please?
Doll up Barbie and dote on the baby.
When you come see me, scrape dirt off in a saddle pad sized area, toss on the tack, and let’s GO, K?
However, I do find the rehydrating spray soothing on my face. If you would like to continue wiping it on, that works for me. Oh. Refill the fly spray bottle. We’re getting close to Annoying Season.
Please look long and hard at included visual aids:
