A Fun Walk
Sigh, I think I might be catching what my husband has, however I'm not going to dwell on it so I'll tell you what I did yesterday. I decided it had been entirely too long since I'd taken Chrome for a walk out in the neighborhood so I took him for a short walk. It was hot! I was about dead by the time I got home. I need to wait until later in the evening when it's cooler next time.
Chrome was very excited and a little spooky because he hadn't been out in a while but he behaved very well. I trotted him a few times and he did that incredible, floating, all four hooves off the ground trot! It was gorgeous! I wish someone had been there to video tape him because I've never seen him move out that well. I tried to get a video, but since I was running and trying to look back over my shoulder it didn't turn out. Below are the pictures I did manage to get. I think they turned out well considering I was running when I took them lol.
I really like how this picture turned out. Normally I don't like having pictures taken, but posing with my colt makes me put on a genuine smile instead of one of those fake 'I have to smile for the camera' smiles lol.
I actually had the forethought to fly spray him before the walk so the flies attacked the only thing I didn't spray . . . his ears. :-/
I love this picture. His face looks so Friesian, but his dainty little legs and flagged tail look so Arabian.
Here he was feeling frisky and started to take a canter stride. I managed to snap the picture at the exact moment before he started trotting again. :) He's going to have such a huge canter under saddle I think.
These last two were blurry so I messed with them in GIMP and I like how they turned out. :)
