So I went to the barn at midnight and was appalled at the behavior of these supposedly "well-behaved" horses. The nasty pony had just finished toilet-papering the stall of the old QH retiree, the 3 greenies were playing "pin the tail" on the barn dog, 2 of the lesson horses had started a bonfire and were burning the lesson kid's helmets, the Trak had shaved the Freisan's mane into a Mohawk while he slept and the 4 OTTB's were all doing "speed".
"Sweetly kneeling and praying" MY A$$!!!!
HAHAHAHA!! THIS is what my barn would be doing on Christmas eve
Riding: The art of keeping a horse between you and the ground.
Thank you. I love this story; it's a sweet Christmas present every year. I get goosebumps and a lump in my throat every time I read it.
I wish I could see something like this... when I walk in the barn on Christmas Eve, they just turn to me with a look on their face that says "WHAT?!"
Me too... every time I read it.
I have to say, that's exactly what my horse would do if I drove out to the barn on X-Mas Eve... I'd get that "WHAT?!" look and then the, "So where's my treat?" look next. But that's okay... I, too, have only seen him lie down once in the 3 years I've owned him.
