We was hoping to head out and hit the trails this weekend. Yesterday was lotsa rain, today cool but, sunny. Instead of trailering out Danette called to say we'd be hittin the trails out back. Mom n me were "game on"!
When Mom came back to tack me up she noticed I was acting a bit worried bout something. Didn't take her long to realize it was Brad just behind our woods, in their woods chopping wood. The noise didn't bother me none, it was that I could see him, then I couldn't, I'd see him, then I couldn't. Mom explained to me that when I saw him he was chopping, & when I couldn't he was bent picking up the wood to stack. Mmmmmmm, I wasn't to sure bout that!!! So, Mom & I headed back slowly to the back gate to the woods. We took our time so I could watch Brad more closely. Once we got into the woods, I got all high headed and snorty. Mom practiced my whoa, back n stuff with the clicker in hopes that my thinking side would kick in (oh, Mom was leading me from the ground). Her shouted up to Brad that we was coming & asked him to stop & talk to me. That helped with him not ducking out of sight so much. However when we got to a certain place there was so much brush he dissapeared again. He n Mom kept talking so I knew he was still there. Once we got outa the brush and we was close I was fine. Whew close call I tell ya.
Mom n Me continued on walking and snacking to the arena barn. Danette had assured Mom that there wouldn't be no more "let the horses loose together". But, soon as we got there, one said "hey lets turn em loose so they can let off steam"! Mom said "we'll step outside while you do", her friend didn't understand why, but Danette backed Mom up. So, since Cameron & Maybe were in their stalls Mom turned me out in their paddock while the boys played a bit. Guess they'd been in their stalls and needed it. Mom just had her cell phone camera but, it'll do at least she remembered pix right!

|Mom just called me in. Being a good girl I didn't hesitate, being in a differant paddock aided in my haste at listening!|
