I forgot!! After we were done riding yesterday, we turned the girls back out to stretch and roll. We had read somewhere that it's a good idea to let them do that. Like brushing them when you are done with a good work out so their hair isn't all compacted. They loosen themselves up and are less likely to cast themselves in the stall. Not like that's ever happened, but they said it's a good idea. Sure enough, about 10 seconds after we turned them out, they both found their spots (about 5 feet away from each other in that huge arena!! lol) and roll. Well, my horse rolled quicker than the older girl and when she rolls, she gets up, takes a huge buck and fart and then darts off. Well, she did her buck and fart and started to dart when the other one was just starting to stand up. Sis attempted to start her little buck too. Only problem? She wasn't quite finished getting up and ended up with rear end and legs in the air and face and front legs being pile drove into the ground. It was the weirdest thing. We (hubby and I) kind of looked at each other because it was in slow motion and we couldn't decide if we should laugh and say silly horse or be worried that she hurt herself. But she got up, shook herself and then took off running. I guess she's ok. We'll see when we go out tomorrow if she's sore or not. Silly old girl. She's not 7 anymore!!! lol If that wasn't a kodak or video moment, I don't know what was.
