Now I Am ConvincedShe can't just do the normal horsey things like kick , strike, step on my feet or dump me and make me hit the dirt or a wall or even a fence for that matter. That is just too plain normal for her. She has to have an original way of making my life unpleasant. My Quest wants to drown me.
I mean, I didn't realize this the first time she threw me in to the river head first. Things happen, right.
It didn't click the second time either. I thought it's pretty normal for a horse to start running and leaping in the lake the moment I take my feet out of the stirrups to prevent my boots from getting wet in deep water. Yes, I went for dive that time too.
Her nextt attempt was a drainage ditch in the middle of November. I sort of started cluing in then that there are just something strange about it all.
I wasn 't even on her that time . She was just getting a drink while i was standing next to her. Next thing I know, I am on the other side of the ditch, laying flat on my belly. That's right! She jumped over the ditch and dragged me through it. Face first of course .
She finally convinced me yesterday. She got a little excited about seeing another horse run while she had to work and decided to throw in a couple of bucks...right next to a pond of course. Big splash.... again. Coincidence...i think not!
Even if I stay away from any natural bodies of water, I still can not feel safe around stock tanks and things like that. Knowing my tricky beast and her devious plan I can expect to be pushed into one of them.
I am still shaking my head in disbelieve... or maybe just due to all the water in my ears
What a mare!
