Police horses sure do put up with a lot...

I just read this story from a local paper...


It's too bad these horses are well trained. Sounds to me like those people deserved to be kicked...
Who does that?? Honestly, you're asking for a swift kick if you walk up to a random horse and slap it on the rump.

Horsenality??

I was bored and this is what came of it...

So, what's your horse's personality??

Hagmania 2008

I've mentioned before that I'm a member of the Hags on Nags. Every year they have a fun show called "Hagmania" and it is one of my favorite events to go to. It is a blast. I took my mare, Riskie, but I believe next year I'll take Remington. He got the day off this year because it was 2 days after our reining lesson, and I think he was pretty tired. He'd never loped so many circles before!!

So here are some photos from the event!





The barrel race wasn't a typical one. When you went around each barrel you had to take a flower from the bucket, and make sure that each flower you took was the same color!






Egg and spoon is always fun!



Broom Polo! In this event you had to weave through cones while hitting the ball through as well and then head back down to the other end. The time stopped when the ball crossed the finish line.



The twisted Keyhole was tricky. The opening of the keyhole faced the end of the arena so you had to go up and around. You also had to back into the keyhole before turning around and running out!
