The tone of our rides lately:
Yes, adulting is hard
No, adulting isn't optional
Yes, you may have an apple afterward
|I hear you, dear horse|
But this transition to adulthood has to happen. Now we're transitioning to fall, so aptly named. Its a season of crisp temperatures, shorter days and increasing equine dumbassery. And the Hippo is feeling much more full of herself. Evidently the temptation to spook at everything/nothing for sheer entertainment purposes has been irresistible. However, I appear to have found a solution!
Welcome to the Samuel L Jackson school of attitude adjustment, where spooking results in an instant Pulp Fiction-esque response.
|Or in our case "Spook again, Hippo"|
We're approaching the point where I see my darling mare eyeball or tilt an ear at things she usually spooks at and decide "It ain't worth it."
|Not worth spooking? Good decision|
|The flapping, like these adorable ears ... with more 'exciting' results|
