Gratuitous Photos

Junior was so mouthy today that during our showmanship practice I let him suck on the leadrope and we kept on practicing shankless (handler not holding the shank/rope). He did pretty good actually!

This is the most snow I've seen since I moved to Ohio and we're not supposed to get a day over freezing for another 10 days or more. Yuck. I had to shovel out the barn door so we could dump manure outside into the honey wagon. (You know, I have no idea why it's called that...) So I will most likely be a hurting unit tomorrow. THOSE muscles are not in shape and I had a short shovel, but it had to be done and I AM the girl from Minnesota after all!

Here are some photos taken by Max's girl from yesterday. I still haven't been able to witness them playing together, but during spring break I'll have days off and will hopefully catch this myself. They sure enjoy their little four-some. Max is back in turnout now and the group dynamic seems to be just fine. Cuteness. Zippy (mare who used to HATE Junior) is the redhead in the blue. Charlie the Welsh is the grey pony, and of course, June-Bug still in his miss-matched attire, but I haven't found any new neck wounds so it's worth it!


  1. Great pics!

    "June-bug"? He lets you call him that? I bet his buddies give 'im heck for that name.

  2. Those are such great photos! I never seem to catch my horse doing stuff like that. :-(

  3. I'm with Laura... those pictures are priceless. I never get good candid pictures like that!

    I love that last one! :)

  4. Those are some really good shots! Junior is so adorable.
