Well tonight I decided I better get cracking and get my junior stud in shape for an upcoming show in September. So I took dear Flash (Heart of the Storm) out and brought him onto the back lawn and decided to lunge the little guy. He is such a sweet stallion this one. We did great until he decided he wanted to try and eat grass as he ran. Never seen that one done,until tonight and even at a full gallop while lunging, pretty good. Looked like a lawnmower made by Tim Alan or something. Anyway, Dancer, my senior stallion was watching all this from his pasture and I got the brain idea to lunge him tooBUT thank GOD I thought to myself "best try this in his pasture" (smart move on my part). Lets just say that I now know that my Dancer would be perfect for THE RODEO! First I think he was nervous of the lunge whip but then he got defiantand decided that maybe the lunge whip was going to bite him in the butt and was kicking out as he was trotting, quite the move. Then we progressed at a VERY animated TROT and then we decided we were going to be a Lippazaner for awhile, all four feet off the ground, that was cool AND THEN, we decided to try to break the Nascar recordwith me trying to desperately hang on to the lunge line. I am so glad I never wrap the line around my hand, that is a no no in the best of times and this time, well lets say I could have been DRAGGED. I don't think I will attempt to drive Dancer for sometime, before we get the basics!
