Hubby with Buddy
I never rode Buddy before; he is Hubby's horse. The first time I got on him was just for a minute to see how he acted after not being ridden for so long. I didn't want to post an ad for him until I made sure he was still good under saddle. He was his typical sweet self. In less than 24 hrs I had him sold to a really good home.
Today was so beautiful! I was really enjoying the outdoors. I took the mares out to the front field, and kept Buddy in the back. I figured he might as well get used to being alone.
After they grazed a while, I brought Nekoda, my spotted mare, up to work her in the round pen. Then I rode her for a few minutes before I took her back to the pasture. I don't know what got into me... I decided to saddle up Buddy and work him for a bit. Then I climbed on... He was so good. I directed him to the gate of the round pen. I thought if he would line up for me, I'd open the gate and we'd ride out into the yard for a bit. He was perfect. We rode around the house, and then I turned him toward the lane. We crossed the creek and headed to the fields. I fell in love.
Now I've got to call a man tomorrow and tell him he's not getting a horse...
