At the Barn #64 - New toy (turning that frown upside down)...

Nothing much to report in the riding department. When the weather was fit this week, I spent my time off working for two private clients. I like to call them hay bill and vet bill.

Thanks for the helpful and supportive comments on the last post. I hope I didn't give the impression of being overly hard on myself. Trust me, that's the opposite of true. Having the objective observer video + slow motion allowed me to see the reality of our rides rather than the happy place memories I've been relying on. It's all good. ;D

(If anyone knows why sometimes iphone video sometimes uploads full screen and sometimes not - please share!)

That was then...







This is now...

There's a large ball kept in one corner of our arena - Red loves to play soccer with it - he'll try to bite it and pick it up, and he'll take a front leg and knock it with his knee and move it along and follow it - he really likes it.

Oh my, is your Val the sweetest thing or what!!!?!!! He is adorable with his new toy!

Gotta get one for the boys!

I forgot to say, his eyes are just beautiful in that video - very loving!

Cute! Shy does love the giant ball. We had one at our old barn. Funny we were having a conversation about those balls today!
Are you holding the phone different ways? I know for my phone (not an iPhone), if I hold it upright, it uploads smaller, like the second video. If I hold it sideways, it uploads normal.

Oh heck, that must be it. Thanks! *headdesk*

Awww, Val is adorable playing with his jolly ball. So cute. Our herd would most likely demolish it in a day.

Love the clients names by the way. Very funny.

I always wanted to get one or two of the big balls for this crew but never seem to get around to it. Looks like Val might end up having fun with his!

The Block Antics Were Too Funny. He Looked As Though He Was Itching. It Is Similar To Wa's Cone Fun.

He's Gonna Have Some Jolly Ball Good Fun!
I'm With Ya...2 Rides In 7 Days.Too Many RED HORSES ( No Ride )On My Cardio Trainer!

The Weather Will Sort Out Soon. Hang In. Glad Vet And Hay Jobs Came About!

That is one spoiled horse, I love it! :)

Val is adorable in both videos! I have to believe he's going to love the jolly ball a bit more than his old, green friend. :)

Lilly has zero interest in toys. I wish she was more curious, like Val. Intead, she's like "whatever..."

Terry said...

Paj beats up on the mounting block too. Maybe he'd like a big ole jollyball!

I keep thinking my donkeys would like one of those, but i can't figure out how to keep it from blowing away. Nice to see that Val enjoys it.

Cute videos!

Lauren said...

It depends on how you hold the phone. I know this because I forgot and hold it vertical all the time :) Cute videos!

Carol said...

Could Val possibly be any cuter? I could eat him right up. He has the sweetest face ever.

I love it when they entertain us! :0)
