Today I am here to tell you the story of how I was almost eaten by sharks and whales and leeches and all kinds of other mean and nasty creatures that live in the wild waters.
It all started when I thought my lady was coming out
to feed me. But she did not feed me, instead she shut my gate and then put a halter on me and made me get dressed. It was late in the day so I knew it could only mean one thing, we were going to see MK again. Now don't get me wrong, I like MK and all but seriously, some days I want to just be able to do what I want, and he does not allow that sort of thing. MK is not a human to be trifled with. It isn't that he is mean, but he is certainly the herd leader FOR SURE!
When we got to MK's barn my lady worked me in the big building where the monsters live outside. The monsters must have been sleeping though because I did not hear them at all. She made me move in circles around her at different speeds and spent a lot of time telling me what a good boy I am. (well duh)
MK was riding the youngster again. His name is Tumbleweed, he is just a teenager, but he seems like a nice kid so I will say that we are friends.
Once again we did not stay in the barn but rode up the road and too the mountain trails. I get a little nervous up there, but Tumbleweed is calm. I think it is because I am wise of the world and I know that there are big cats and bears and wild wolves up there just waiting to attack us from behind. So I am always on the look out, and ready to run so that I may keep my lady safe from harm.
|This is the mountain area where we ride. You can't see it,|
but there is a ravine just past the first patch of
snow. We go down and battle monsters.
Sometimes the water is moving fast, sometimes it is more of a mud pit and I sink up to my hocks. Sometimes I think it is quicksand and I am afraid I will not get out at all, so I jump it instead. This makes my lady say bad words. One time I jumped it and "accidentally" ran my lady into a tree. Then she really said some bad words! I don't know why though, I did not succeed in feeding her to the sharks, all she got was a little scratch.
I think that MK is tired of her saying bad words, because I heard him say, "If he keeps that up, you are going to get hurt. Do you mind if I take him back over that?"
I was saying, "NO NO NO!"
My Lady says, "Oh sure."
Then I was the one saying bad words.
Meanwhile back on the bank...
My lady was playing with Tumbleweed, telling him how cute and brave he was!
What about me down here battling sea monsters for you?!?
I wanted to run up the hill and tell her all about my narrow escape, but MK made me stop and stand. Sheesh Dude!! Can't you see that she is fraternizing with that other horse?
Yeah right, I heard you up here cheating on me when you thought I wasn't looking.
So then we headed on our ride. From then on I crossed the wild waters much better for my lady, except once, and she made me go back and do it again. I really wanted to go home and eat my dinner so from then on I did not argue.
We went as high as we could go and then turned around and headed home. When we were coming back down we found an old human barn and went to investigate. (I don't know why she didn't take pictures of that- it was purty cool)
This is us riding off into the sunset like in the cowboy movies.
No I have not ever seen a movie, but I have been told stories.
Then she stopped to take a picture of where we had been
|That is my most handsome shadow.|
When we got back to MK's barn my lady undid my belt so that I knew that we were done, but she undid it too much and as we walked up the hill to the trailer my saddle almost fell under my belly. So she had to hold it on there and make me walk in front of her. I wasn't sure what she wanted at first, but once I understood it, I led her all the way to the trailer.
She gave me 2 candies for being a good boy.
I wanted 2 more but she wouldn't give them to me.
So I gave her the cold shoulder.
I saved her from sharks and leeches and big cats, all past my dinner time.
I think I deserved 2 more!
