Grumpy Jerk

Do I look grumpy? Well not only was I grumpy, I was a jerk!
The DOR took me down to the arena to ride. We were going to have fun. Operative word here is we, as in the DOR and I. I arrive to the arena and who is there...Coelho and the SSC.
Coelho kicked at me the very first time I met him. There were three of us in the arena getting ready for a trip. The mare got loaded into the trailer and I was to go in behind her. When I went out the arena gate to go to the trailer Coelho swung butt around and fired off a swift kick. What the heck was that for? I was being nice, doing what I was told, looking innocent, and he tries to hurt me. I don't think he was being nice and I haven't forgiven him...not sure I ever will.
Well I can share the arena if I have to.The SSC had a new treeless saddle that everyone had to look at. The SSC had a new breast collar that he needed help with. Alrighty then, I understand a human needing help but did the DOR have to help him? Here I was all saddled up and I had to wait to play until the DOR quit fussing with Coelho. Well that was not my idea of fun. I made it very clear after the DOR got on that I was not happy. I stomped around the arena at a walk, swishing my tail as hard as I could. When asked to trot I did my best imitation of a jackhammer. I didn't mind well and imitated a jumping car. All in all I was as naughty as could be. I think the DOR got the message, she apologized for ignoring me, as well she should. I also made it clear to the SSC and Coelho that I was not amused with them, I gave them the appy glare every chance I got. I think I put them in their place.
The DOR says that I am going to have to work on my social skills. I think that means that we get to visit more...that should be fun. I love spending time with the DOR as long as I don't have to share her with another strange horse.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR

Careful my friend , your appytude is showing

Breathe said...

Dude. You should have kicked the mess out of that horse that kicked you. I think you showed remarkable restraint. Really.

Cactus J. I just had to check in and see what you were up to this week. Grumpy is a mood that will pass quickly just as in your human counterparts. You remind me of the Appaloosa, Chautauqua Ranger Mist, I had growing up. Have a good day with lots of roughage and greens.

Ah, Jack . . . seems to me, from a gelding's perspective, that the "Grumpy Jerk" was the OTHER horse in the arena and that you showed remarkable retraint by not biting his nasty, painted butt.

Excellent job my young friend. That is exactly what I would have done, but being older, in addition to the Appy glare I would have included some sneaky butt biting.

*shocked outrage* I think you are totally right to be grumpy. I get grumpy too, just don't take it out on your person.

Hay Jack...get up on the wrong side of the stall today??? Patience is a 2 way street and your DOR has lots of it with you. However...the kick was a very naughty thing to do!!!

Paint Girl said...

Oh Jack! Why do you have to be grumpy? I understand being kicked at can cause that, but be kind to your DOR!

Major likes the sound of the 'appy stare'. He's wondering if he could practise it on Dylan.
