I stood Red up in about two seconds for a quick conformation shot just because. Even with the lure of grass three feet away, he was more than willing to square up and stand still.
Red's Top Five Favorite Things:
2. Licking the wall (or other available surfaces) when done eating.
3. Getting his picture taken.
5. Getting a treat for being so cute, licking the hand that fed him, then rolling and looking more cute so he gets his picture taken again.
He leads a hard life.
|a half-assed attempt at a conformation shot. he actually has|
a really short neck--i don't know why he looks like a giraffe.
Once he got the idea that he was free to run, however, he took it to heart and started making laps. To the right--which means he was really hammering his RF where his wonky suspensorary is. Noooo. So I had to lure him in with the crinkling of the carrot bag to get him to stop.
He was too impressed with himself to even get treats, so he had to snort and dance around me for a few minutes before focusing again.
|"zomg, i iz a racehorse! a cuh-razy racehorse!"|
|"alright, now where are my cookies?"|
|"you can't keep cookies from me!"|

I let him graze by the barn for about ten minutes before the BO suggested throwing him out in the area by the round pen to graze for awhile.
|oh, gosh. i swear he's not pregnant!|
Just as I was leaving, BM pulled out Pepper for a driving lesson. As Pepper is probably the cutest Appy pony in existence, I couldn't help but stay to watch.
