Visiting My Little (BIG) Brother

This weekend was great. Mom took me too see my little brother Sunny… more like a BIG brother (in size). It was a little scary cause there were so many other horses that were even bigger than Sunny and they all came to the fences to see me when mom took me around the property. I had fun eating the grass they couldn’t reach… yes I think I am part horse too…BOL The best part was I found a pile of horse poop to roll in. What a great way to cool down. Mom was not too pleased with me… I don’t know why she didn’t join me? It was soft and mushy and it smelled wonderful oh boy I had a great time rolling in it. I guess mom and I haven’t different ideas when it comes to cooling down. She put me on the cross ties (kind of like a leash but they are connected to the walls) and gave me a sponge bath. Oh it was terrible I couldn’t stop shaking (did I mention I don’t like water?) even though mom used warm water to take away the poo. Then she got some warm water and put some oatmeal stuff in it and sponged me with that to give me a nicer smell and to make my fur soft. I smelled like those yummy cookies mom gets some times. I smelled so good I couldn’t help licking my paws. BOL

After my bath we continued our walk on the property and I got to check out Sunny’s stall. It was much cooler in there plus it has all these fresh woodchips for me to rest on. Mom didn’t have me on the leas and I found his stall all by myself. I followed mom back and forth as she got ready to work with Sunny… I didn’t even chase the chickens when they ran by the barn door… they sure looked plump (yum yum). Mom brought Sunny in and I sat outside his stall while mom groomed him. He tried to sniff me but I ran away cause I’m still a little scared of him. I made sure to sit out of his reach, but close enough so I could keep an eye on mom. When mom took Sunny into the indoor ring to work with him I sat in his stall until they were finished. It was a great day. We stopped at a farmers market on the way home and I got lots of attention there. Then we got home and I passed out from exhaustion. I hope the weather is nice enough for me to go with mom next weekend. I heard mom say she might take Mango next time. Not sure I like that. Maybe if I’m really really good this week she will take me instead
