It's not just me!

So Lil Momma goes to the barn to exercise the horses yesterday, and when she comes back she says, " Your horse is a JERK!"
He didn't want to lope in the round pen, he wanted to 'pretend' to kick at her, he bowed up and got all 'Mr Badass ' with her. She smacked the crap out of him ( of course! Good girl!) and he settled down, but honestly! 
I was hoping he's settle down a little faster, but he is really pissed off( evidently). 
So today I'll go out and ride him myself. I am seeing a little bit of improvement, we actually were able to lope on Wednesday without him jumping sideways- at least for awhile. Then he remembered the scary bathroom just over the fence and started the jumping rearing thing again. Took me another 20 minutes of punishment circles to line him out and between the reins to get him past that spot again. Maybe it's the smell, but he's just gonna have to get over it! 

Other than that Mrs Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?

On a brighter note, he's gaining weight FAST! ( What were they feeding him at the other barn? Cardboard?)

Good girl! Don't let him get away with that crap.

One of the less romanticized aspects of owning a horse - but someone needs to be the boss and it can't be the horse.
