We're walking... We're bucking.... that's how we roll

Seriously.. I think Fleck has taken this "you do whatever you want now" thing a little too far. ;) 

We had another nice bareback hack today with Peri and Roux. We mostly just walked all through the woods and fields but we trotted up the hill a little bit. Well, Roux trotted and Fleck cantered in place behind him. :) Then we watched her and Roux jump in the field for a little bit. Fleck threw in a few bucking temper tantrums but nothing major. Until we were leaving! A big ol' horse fly came after both of them and I guess.... goosed them! Roux sort of squirted off a bit and Fleck squealed, farted, and let out an actual buck! Not the crow hops he usually does but an actual buck. Then squirted off. But then they were both done, so.. we survived. :)

I love him so.  For some reason I didn't get any pictures today. Maybe cause it was just a hot steamy day... not great lighting... maybe because I was having fun chatting with Peri.. maybe because I was too busy fending off horse flies.... ??? But it was a good day!

Easy Mode

Gah.. I love this horse!
*This week has me like.... *

We had a nice ride.... It was so hot that we just did a nice fun relaxing bareback walk to the lake and played in the lake for a bit. Fleck was a bit jiggy but it was a nice slow western pleasure jog type jig. :) Easy to sit. :) 

He had fun in the lake. So did I. He splashed, got in fairly deep, splashed, flipped his nose around in it, splashed some more, and soaked. Ahhhhhh

 Flecky was snoozing (as was Dan) when I went to go catch them for our ride. Hee hee. Fleck *IS* a morning person, as opposed to Dan. ;) I swear.. you pull out the camera and Fleck smiles!
