This is what happens when you try to trim Amelias back feet, she just flopped onto the ground and laid there. Katie sat on her neck but she did not try to get up. Don't know what caused her to do that. It was startling. Raven did that the first time Bob trimmed her hind feet too. Its kind of hysterical really.
We decided today to see if you could ride Amelia. She obviously had not been ridden in a while but neck reined awesome and gave to leg cues. Katie said she never really touched her mouth. She does not like the cinch however. She spun her head and would have taken a hunk out of Katie if she had not moved. She only rode her in the round pen about 5 minutes. Then we had the episode with the feet and then put her back into her pasture. Bless her heart.
It was really hot today but thank God for a cool house. I am not complaining however. Can't stay out in it too long but I don't mind really if I dont have to do anything strenuous outside.
Got my first cup of raspberries today. I am going to eat them on my cereal in the morning. I can't think of any fruit I like any better than raspberries.

We have 5 grandchildren here tonight. They are out in the pool at them moment or jumping on the trampoline. I will have to round them up shortly. That group of cousins love each other so much and it makes me so happy.

  1. I've never seen that before! How funny. Did you trim her feet while she was down?

  2. maybe the cinch hurt because she's a little boney? If horses could talk, she would have quite a life story I'm sure.

  3. That's weird! Beautiful puts all her weight down when we trim her back feet. Maybe she is trying to fall down, too.

    Sounds like you have a fun home for your grandkids!
