I took Chrome and Zeppelin out to the lease land for the first time yesterday and we had soooooo much fun!!! It was really hot so I hosed him off before and after. Check out these pictures of the fun we had.
I took him out on a lead rope at first and he was so excited. I don't think he's seen that much grass and open land in his entire life (which is really sad, but what can we do?)!
I finally turned him loose and I promise if I were a nail biter I would have had bloody fingers in minutes. I was soooo nervous turning him loose. I kept imagining him going through a fence, falling, breaking a leg . . . but everything went great. I just can't help worrying. As you can see the grass has gotten tall, but we have a guy that is bush hogging it for us. It's just a lot of land so it'll take a while. Checking out the cut grass.
Here he spotted the pond for the first time. I don't think he's ever been around one before. I didn't get any pictures because I was busy, but he did walk in the pond eventually. He didn't put up nearly as much of a fight as I would have expected lol. He's such a willing boy. My husband got it on video tape, but I can't find my software for putting it on the laptop. :(
Sorry some of the pictures are blurry. I had the camera zoomed as far as it would go on some of them.
I was surprised how clumsy Chrome could be sometimes. He needs more freedom to run and build up his muscles and coordination. I am SO happy we got this lease land! He sure was beautiful when he'd open up and gallop.
Got a fly. Those green headed flies and the big mean horse flies were bad.That last one is my favorite. :) Thanks for joining us for the fun. I can't wait to take him out again.
Sorry about the copyright on these last few pictures, but these are my favorites and this is a public blog. I want to be sure someone doesn't decide to steal them and sell them in case I decide to do something with them. Isn't he just gorgeous??
