Yesterday was so odd.
Laz was hot and sweaty (insert HUMID summer here in Michigan) was I arrived. I gave him some nice poll massages and he was loving it up.
The more I think about it...we are so alike! Do you think you are similar to your horse?
I'm skiddish..he's spookish.
I'm a sleep-aholoic and from the video below, you'll see he is too
I have random mood swings and apparently so does he!
The list goes on, but it's funny!
So, here Laz is napping while I'm cleaning up his poop all around him.
Now, I know this video below could look like he's a dying horse...REST ASSURED, it's pure lazy nap time. PROMISE :)
**Side note: I was playing around with Laz's mouth and come floating time..I think it'll be a doozy..I found he still has his Wolf teeth, at age 9!! Is that normal?? I'm thinking not....
Cliff wants to wait a bit before I tranq him/float him-and let him heal more
Here is a lame video of Laz crossing the cool water jump..er..obstacle. ;)
Laz's TB Internet buddy, Olly would sail over this one, but Laz just tip toe's thru it
I tried to get him on video playing in it, but he's obviously a bit shy around the camera because he wouldn't do it when I was taping.
Here is just a video of Laz walking.
I think he's moving soooo much better, and really think the upcoming Chiro will do wonders on him.
You can tell in this video, he was sooo bored with me.
Back to the barrels...
Back to the barrels...
So, on the 'being bored' note. Laz was just off yesterday. He was calm and then out of nowhere, he would slam his front feet down and buck and fart out, and then right back to calm. It's like, he gets these little spurts of energy and JUST has to get them out. He wasn't being a bad boy, just a young boy. I really think he's challenging his inner coltness.
After a half hour in the arena, I could just tell he was like "this is booooring Mom" so I took him out for a walk around the front lawn which was nice but he was wanting to misbehave. I offered him a lunging circle to buck out and be silly, but he just trotted (awfully might I add) and I could literally hear his back cracking. Ugh!
Hopefully, a few adjustments will do him some good. That being said, though, hopefully he won't turn develop a royal OTTB attitude because on our 10 minute walk, as we were just about to finish our little bareback walk....he BUCKED. Well, he didn't buck, he snaked his head side to side, picked up a terrible trot and shoulder popped me. I said "NO way Sir! Have some manners for your Momma!" so we couldn't stop our walk on a bad note like that. The last thing I want is for him to think, "oh I'll just buck and she'll get off" especially because it wasn't a buck because of pain (I'm pretty sure) it was a buck of I FEEL good!
Great, that is great Laz, I'm happy you feel good but bucking me off gets you a life of "pony for sale!"...thankfully I didn't eat it and we did end up walking calmly and ending on a good note.
The garden is starting to flourish!
I picked broccoli, radishes, lettuce, onions to make a delic salad for dinner last night!
