Still Sick

Sadly I am still not 100%, so no new saddle time for me. I did snap two cute photos (imo) of my mama & Nancy as we turned them out this morning.

Matchy-matchy mama & Nancy - even foot falls!

And I caught what i think is a hilarious short video of Kika and Nancy letting loose. First K rolls & Nancy trots past full of beans looking for mischief.  Usually once K finishes rolling she leaps up and takes off farting & bucking. However today she was distracted by my mother filling their water - to see K's facial expressions imo is priceless. Plus you can totally see Nancy was anticipating some hoopla as she interrupted her own roll hoping for some fun.



They are such funny bunnies, although not captured on video this time (some day i will manage) the hoopla did happen shortly afterwards. Once I'd hung their haynets & noticed N acting a little strange. (You'll see her kind of kick at her stomach at the end of the video) So holding her just by the head collar i took her for a walk around the turnout area. Afraid of missing out Kika followed - leaving the hay behind, that should have been the first clue to the mischief that was to follow. However they were both angelic & cute while i walked with N. As soon as i let her go Trouble (aka Kika) took leave of her senses and unleashed her bucking and farting messing which set off Mischief (aka Nancy). The two of them had a right ould yeehaw before settling back down to stuff themselves with hay.

Maxi Nancy & my Mini-Mama

Nancy did no more stomach kicking so methinks their sprint & buckfest helped her loosen out whatever may have been troubling her. This is also what i get for not having turned them out since Wednesday. I was off work sick on Thursday and there was shooting/hunting in the woods nearby on Friday, so although I was back at work and could have gone to turn them out i chose not to for fear of stray bullets and/or spooking which could lead to a breakout and damaged ponios = no thank you!
I did get some video footage of my loose lunging the pair of them Friday evening which I hope to turn into gifs thanks to a link $900fbpony shared. Sorry I can't link but as usual am posting from my phone...I really need to buy myself a new laptop!

  1. I hope you feel better soon. Being sick is just awful. I love the pictures of your mom and Nancy matching in the best color ever hehe. The video is great. For some reason it's so funny to me that horses still roll with their blankets on. :) I'm glad Nancy seems fine. Maybe something got under her blanket strap or something. Chrome was switching his tail around really hard at one point during our ride today almost like a fly was after him, but there are no flies! So I'm not sure what it was. He was fun though. :)

      I wish people loved taking photos as much as i do, then maybe some of my pony moments might be caught...I live in hope of someday having some with me to share - till then you'll have to put up with mirror selfies!
