Just another day in the barn…
Hey, that’s the truck. The truck is coming back!
Where have they been and who is that?
That’s different. That’s definitely different.
Who is THAT?
“That” is Tice. Yes, as a matter of fact, <a href=”http://www.equibase.com/profiles/Results.cfm?type=Horse&refno=6443485®istry=T“>this Tice.</a>
I had a very fancy mommy and daddy.
He has been living in retirement in Indiana, and when his owner, the lovely and generous B., found out I was still looking for a pasture companion and at most light-riding type, she suggested Tice. After a trip down to meet him in person, we decided to give it a try. Today Dad and I made the really long round trip to central Indiana to pick him up. Mom stocked us up with snacks, we packed up the hay bag and extra hay, three two-gallon jugs of spring water and a bucket, his snazzy new sale halter (just like Lucky’s, only black), and we managed to find the barn and get the trailer in with relatively little fuss. Getting Tice IN the trailer required a little more fuss, but he did eventually load. THIS is more how I expect a TB to act: a bit of opinion expressing about how he does not enjoy standing around in a trailer, he is not interested in the water, though he will stuff himself with the hay, and are we there yet?
Also. now we’re there, where is there?
The first thing he did once in his new stall was get down and roll. The second thing was start prowling for something to eat. He did eventually decide to drink (apparently, well water > store-bought spring water) before going back to stuffing himself with hay. No grain tonight, since he had a very stressful day, but as long as all systems appear normal he’ll get a mix of his old feed and new for breakfast.
Then we go outside and play? We’ll see, Lucky, as long as the rain stops.
