Mud and meeting

We went out to the barn yesterday. It's been raining for days, so I can't really walk around most of the fields at the barn. But I needed some horse time, things remain pretty stressful in life right now.

Because of the layout and the deep mud in the paddock where Cibolo runs, I could only stand at the gate and hope he would come over.

He was close to the gate, off to one side. QH Amigo ambled over to see me - he's alpha and greets everyone. Then he walked over to Cibolo and nudged him away since he doesn't like it when we pay attention to the other horses, then QH Amigo came back to me.

Great.

Cibolo looked at me. I called him over. He stood in place, lifted his tail, and after he was done, he walked over to me, daring a rebuke from Amigo - who knows better when I'm right there.

Cibolo dropped his head into his halter and we stepped out. Together.

That's what horse time is good for!
