I love new buddies, it means that I have less work to do. This new guy is Casey The Black aka Bones, he is testing out for the drill team. Now I could do drill team...no really I could. I went and when we passed the bucking shoots I bucked, when horses got too close to my batookie in formation I taught them to back off, when someone waved a flag I took off just like I was taught to do-so where was the problem? I just didn't want to lope as long as they do.
So Bones is here to see if he can fill Sir Darby's rather large and pompous shoes. He has a good sense of humpr, which one needs when dealing with the DOR. After all when you are going down a trail and she suddenly raises her hands and whoops because she is having fun one must remember she is a silly human. She also makes us were silly costumes and pose for pictures, we just sigh and put up with it because we get treats later.
The DOR has entered us in the Distance Derby again this year, she missed last year's sign up, so having more hooves to help pack her around will make it easier on all of us.
Me I am going to pretend I have a boo boo everytime she comes out to catch me.
Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR!
