Fun in the field!

Well, I am REALLY liking going out in the pasture. It is so much fun! Mom has always said I'm a dead head and lazy, I showed her today, ha! She was leading me out and I started prancing, she didn't mind that too much 'cause I wasn't stepping on her feet. But, then I jumped in the air, I was just feeling really good and was excited to go out! She wasn't too happy about the jumping part and popped me with the lead rope, can you believe that? Hmmmf! That's ok, those thick cotton ropes don't hurt anyway but, I settled down just so I wouldn't scare her. I'm getting so big I could drag her across the yard but, naaaaw...I walked the rest of the way. Then I ran so hard and bucked and squealed! Man, it was fun! Mom says I'm finally getting some umpf...not sure what that means but, she is happy about it.
Then she brought out my "little sister" Forty....she was bad on the way to the field, too....tee hee....she got the lead rope, too. She deserved it though, she's a BRAT! I don't know why Mom likes her...whatev.....anyway, she put Forty out and she was running and playing and I don't know WHAT she was thinking 'cause the fences haven't moved but, she ran into the fence! Like she didn't even see it or thought she was Superhorse or something! I was laughing and laughing, lol...Mom got all scared and worried for a sec but, Forty just bounced off and ran the other way without missing a beat! She is a quick little snot. I went over and inspected the fence she hit and yep, it was all still there like some magic force field! Weird little horse.....she never did tell me why she did that, guess she won't be doing that again anytime soon!
That's all for today, next week Mom says I'm getting a sidepull! Yay! I don't know what that is but, she says all the big horses have them! I hope it's food:)

Very exciting day!!!

Today was really cool! I got to go out in the pasture:) (it's not really a pasture, but, it's a good 2 acres to run around on) See, after I got hurt, mom was always afraid to ever let me back out. Well, that and the fencing that was up was no match for me, hahaha! I don't know why those dumb older horses think that one little piece of white string stuff is so scary...they could just put their head under it and walk out, they are just dumb I guess. So, I only got to go out in the round pen. Now let me tell you, my bratty barn mate Forty gets turned loose all the time! It's not fair! She is dumb, too....she doesn't even realize there is no fence around the front but, she just stays around the barn and the back....pfffttt...I got out once and went on down the street to the neighbors;) It was waaay fun! You should have seen mom chasing me, lol...she can't run as fast as she used to.....silly humans, old age and cigarettes will do that.
Anyway, back to today. Mom was out working on the fence and finally said it was good enough for me to get out. Yay!!! She said if I was a good girl and the weather is decent, I could get out everyday and once a shelter is put up, I might get to stay the night out there.....it will be like camping!

In the beginning

I was born a little black filly with sexy long legs. Someone said, "Let's call her Hottie!" "Come here Hottie" "Pretty Hottie" "Hottie!" "Hottie!" "Hottie, hottie!" "Bad Hottie!" "Good Hottie!"....that was all I heard at first so, pretty sure that is my name.
And then I started growing and sadly, greying but, not too much. Still have the long legs but, due to an unfortunate freak accident as a weaner in a pasture during a snow storm, I have a scar on one of my pretty long legs:(
Alas, the vets say I will be fine and mom thinks it's time I earn my keep....EEEKS!! I really like being lazy though....*sigh*...guess, I will try to please her...she does give me lots of pets and treats:)
They have been making me run around that round pen lately and putting that saddle on me. Mom even got on my back once. Not sure what she was doing but, I stood very still so I wouldn't hurt her...she's old and fragile, you know?
That's all I've got for now. Mom is lazy, too so...not sure when any videos will be taken;)

Finally out!!

Finally out!!

How come I only have water and they are drinking beer and margaritas?

Wow, it's windy out here!

This was fun but, is it dinner time yet?
