Barn Improvements

 You know when you're like halfway through a REALLY good ride and your horse ALL OF A SUDDEN notices the giant new mirror on the wall (like, in a bad way).
 So you hop off and let him sniff it because you don't have a death wish.
 But you see this look in his eye and you're riding alone, so you just strip his tack off and watch him completely lose ALL THE MARBLES.
 And he admires himself in the now totally-not-scary mirror even while galloping by.
 Like. Hey Sexy. You're so hot.
 Has anyone seen this attractive horse in the mirror? He seems to need cookies.
 Yeah. It was never about the mirror.
Suckers.

(We'll just file this under "horses gotta horse" and "thank god Courage doesn't pull shenanigans on frozen pastures" but also under "still gotta give him indoor turnout to keep his brain in his head".)

  1. Hah! Just be careful that he doesn't kick one and shatter it... not that I'd know how that feels from personal experience or anything...

    1. I wanted him to be Captain America, but he's sorta way too fabulous to pull off someone that straight laced. So it goes.

    2. I agree with that. Maybe Iron Man? He has that "I'm totally awesome" vibe plus I think he would have some snark if he could talk :)

    3. Some snark? Ha! He is 100% opinion all the time and not afraid to express it, ever.

  10. SO envious! The barns I've been at in CA don't allow you to turn your horse out in the rings...but sometimes they just need to "horse" around! Love that galloping shot- hilarious!

  11. I rode with mirrors for the first time in December and I LOVED them. If they weren't such an absurdly exorbitant expense I would be whispering in my barn owner's ear a LOT.

  12. Today my horse was concerned by the mirrors because for the first time in weeks they weren't frosted over. Like, whoa, you can see in these things??
    Courage looks like he is having a blast in there. Gotta love yourself, right?

  14. So lucky that you have mirrors now! None of my horses were ever that interested in them. At one of the barns that I show at they have an entire wall of mirrors in their indoor, and Sydney barely gives them a sideways glance.
