Changing of the guard

Post by Dallas Landers » Fri Oct 02, 2020 6:09 pm

These two went home to learn working on the farm. For the last year, they have grown and learned people are your friend. Vacation at Landers spa is over.

Hank's right!
Neigh! We won't crash gates. Neigh! ;)
Beautiful horses. You're good to them at Landers Spa. Care and love.
Dallas, what kind?
Sister bought an Arabian when we were young, what a snot!
Couldn't get along with the Quarter Horse sisters Star & Patches at all. Grandpa was the instigator. :)
But could she run! Well, Fury was her name...
All of 'em would puff up their chests for the saddle sinch and I almost looked like the Pink Panther in Pinto Pink at about 4:22.
Saddle went sideways and down. Dunk, dunk, dunk!
Laddy the tall Shetland mix ran my axx over once. His mother Lady just munched grass...
Still beautiful horses.
Thank goodness I'm dealing with 6 pound or less animals right now. Fireworks sometimes! The fragile 20 year old Rox is so pixxxx.
But Mamma and Rox have stopped fighting at least.
Damn cats. But they're so dang cute when they're young and it's getting cold... Figure it out D.
Since I lost my mind mind, I feel more liberated

Shetland ponies one bucked me off when I was a kid, landed wrong and broke my arm, another, Dad had a wire stretched over a gate for electric fence right at eye level for me, you might guess what happened. Trip to eye doctor for me. Our 1/4 was ex race, it did like to run. The Morgan was ok to ride till she decided it was time to go back to the barn. The Arabian gilding, did not like men (think that making him in to a gilding has something to do with that) or for that matter most everyone, but man when it pranced across the field it was a sight to behold.

After getting kicked several times by standard breed buggy horses, I wont let them on the farm.
The workhorse is a gentle giant. I take no chances behind them but never had one try to kick.

. . . it's never the horse's fault . . .

Really.
