Some days when I watch their craziness, and then I am crazy enough to turn the antics into slow motion, I just thank the lord I am still alive to post this today :)

I think Skipper and Cashy missed each other today.
Cashy was very well behaved out a clinic today, leaving his light white mate pining or him all day ( good exercise for the princess )

I am just glad they save this for their paddock efforts :)

Yee-ha! Love watching horses cut loose! They are just letting off steam... they should know better than do that with you on board, so don't worry! Just horses being horses!

Maybe they are just getting the trotting out of their system : )

Yes we must be ever thankful that under saddle they mostly all behave for us.
I sure get that all trotted out feeling.
I do think the back ends are certainly working pretty well :P
maybe it did all help them both.

I think we as humans could do with remembering to express our joy in simply being alive like that a little more often!

Here's my guys having a hoon a few years ago:

We had a big boy here at one stage, I used to watch him buck in the paddock- all of 6 inches off the ground, then one day he did it with me in the saddle, after a scare; I popped off like an overripe pea!! so much power! Unfortunately he landed on both my knees, I couldn't walk properly for weeks!! Have to say I did not have any riding fitness but I didn't stand a chance of sticking to him!!

Lovely Photos Bats, I wonder if someone named Spring from watching animals have fun :P

I also thought Cashy never arrived with that many kicks ups and outs and leaps and cavorts...

I'm laughing. Mainly at myself for not even seeing that.
But truly we humans after the age of about 8 seem to have forgotten how to enjoy having a healthy active body. You see little kids running around like horses but do you ever see a young healthy adult, no arthritis, just letting loose enjoying their healthy strong body just because they can? No that would not be cool. I'm barracking for the horses

She was so happy going Yeh the meds have kicked and I feel young again then over she went got up lame on two legs and went instantly to Mummy my legs hurt. She looked so hang dog I wanted to cry.
