Giving Lip and Lotsa Bull


About a week ago, friend McDebbie delivered a couple of horses here for Darling and I to start working. One of these was Primera, that adorable filly we had with us at the fair this past summer. Primera had only been saddled up once or twice since that time, so it was almost like starting over...but of course since it wasn't a huge issue the first time, it wasn't anything to write home about this time, either. We're looking forward to seeing how this girl progresses!

Meanwhile, down at Curt's, Tika has decided to start giving a little lip in objection to being tied and left to stand at the rail. This is not her favorite exercise, but certainly one she needs to figure out.



Of course, considering the happenings and goings on, she did quite well to only stand and make faces. Out behind the arena the tractor was busy loading manure from the compost bin into the dump truck, and inside the arena, raging back and forth directly behind her, was the bull.


Given all the extra noise and distraction, I opted not to climb aboard. Good enough just to stand and absorb all that was happening. She's a lovely observer, isn't she?

Where do I get a bull like that? I need one!

Tracey said...

Thank you, Flyinghorse2! How kind of you :)

Dom...don't we all need that bull? Only $17,000, and you can have one of your very own!

Ah, the lovely Wadatika! She is looking downright civilized these days.

That first black and white looks so much like a tobiano mare I had once! Beautiful horses! I've never seen a bull contraption like that before. When I was a kid I had a flag tied to a rope on a pully system and a friend to pull it back and forth. Lol!
