My college roommate, Carolyn, came to visit today. She hadn't seen the ponies since they were wee, so we went to the barn to have some frolic-time.
It started out normal-- Sarge stood nicely as we groomed him. Then he got fidgety. By the time I took him into the indoor ring-- where he is usually a lazy slug-- he was feeling Full Fledged Frisky.
Needless to say, nobody got on him, haha. Instead, I lunged him around, and he cantered and galloped, merrily bucking all the way.
I have never seen him like that! Usually, once the tack goes on, he knows that it's working time. He has his silly moments, but... not like that.
I'm assuming it's a mix of the weather changing back and forth a lot, the fact that he hasn't been getting a super lot of exercise lately, and three horses leaving and a new horse coming to the barn.
Yeesh! Let's hope he gets all of that out of his system soon!
