Stupid me didn't take into consideration that it is currently about 20 degrees BELOW normal right now. Instead of it being in the low 100's with high humidity, it is in the low to mid-80's with relatively low humidity. We are having glorious cool weather due to a cold front that brought much needed rain over the last 2 days. It feels like fall.
So, I'm not the only one loving the cool weather! When I stuck Tonto on the longe line today, the first mistake I made was NOT realizing he would probably be feeling his oats. The second mistake was attempting to longe him in his halter. I always longe him in either a cavesson or his bridle.
The fifth mistake was trying to work him in a wet field. I am lucky he didn't hurt himself when he bolted those 2 times. He could have slipped and fallen or worse! It was so wet from all the rain, you can see water splashing up from his hooves!
I loved this photo of him stretching for grass as he ran around.
The shot above would have been really good had I not zoomed in so far, cutting his head off!!! It's funny how he flags his tail so much! As far as I know he is 100% Shetland...
The shot below is one of my favorites from today. It should be labeled "Freedom" or "Liberty" or something like that... :)
Just wanted to share some lessons learned today. At work, we are reminded every day to practice safety, not just at work, but at home, too. So there's our safety lesson for today!
