It was so cold that all the horses ended up next to that heater for a while.
Indy was the first horse worked, her tail bag had split open. They just don't make tail bags like they use to, either that or our horses are just plain hard on them.
Left to right is Zalena, Ayanna, Oksana and her mother Eliza.
Galena was having a good roll before settling down to eat.
Ayanna was next. This mare continues to impress us.
Just as Karin started working her someone in the neighborhood starting shooting a very loud gun. Karin had to bail off Ayanna who is our most reactive mare. All the mares took off. The shots were repeated over and over and the horses were sure we were under attack. Eliza kept trying to get the barn door opened to escape.
Karin had to get their attention with another round pen session to try to teach them to ignore the gun shots. There were at least 15 big booms. I was just glad this didn't happen last Saturday when all the little kids were riding. I guess I should ask the neighbors to please let us know when they are going to be shooting so we don't have an accident.
After the shooting Karin went back to work finishing up with Ayanna then riding Eliza.
Oksana was very bored by this time so she was the next horse worked.
The last mare worked was Zalena.
The horses were put away and we went in for lunch. While Karin was working the horses a couple phone calls came in. The first was the owner of this mare:
The second group that came up had a violin, guitar and yuke. Thankful they were willing to share their talents.
David had the message. The King IS coming and if you want to be great in HIS kingdom be a servant here. The message was WAY more than just this though. I wish it had been recorded to listen to again.
The band below played next and coincidentally they ALL happen to be pirates. I wonder if they would be willing to share their talents by bringing their instruments and sound system to the horse fair.
Mark and I needed to leave around 8:30 pm so did not get to hear the other bands play but it was a blessed evening.
