Dusty Rocks

It's here!
I am so excited!
Doc helped me set things up today. Dusty was all over him.
He was so funny.
I thought he was just really happy to see
him and wanted some lovin'! Doc is trying' to quit smoking.
He had some non-tabacco mint flavored snoose in his mouth
and that was what Dusty was smelling.
He wanted some.

The copper pony would not leave him alone!

Dusty moved around so much, my pictures are blurry!

Doc finally gave Dusty some "snoose" to try!
He loved it! I will have to get him some
peppermint treats.

This is my favorite picture.
Again he's moving his head all over the place.

Dusty was so good during all of this.
Thank you Doc for all your help, and for
your PATIENCE with my boy for bugging the heck out of you!

I love this color on Dusty.
I'm hoping to get the matching breast color and headstall soon.

Here we are. All dressed up.
The copper pony has not been ridden in two months.
He was a bit bored with the arena today.
It is not his favorite thing to do.
He thought he needed to go left when I wanted to go right!
It felt good to be back in the saddle again.
Now we just need to get out and ride those trails!!!
He has a mind of his own.

A horse gallops with his lungs,
Preservers with his heart,
And wins with his character.

A new saddle -- how exciting! You didn't say what make. Looks good on him. He sure was a perpetual motion machine.

Leah, It is a Billy Cook Barrel saddle. I had a trail saddle before and love it, but it didn't fit me. I am sure I have given up some comfort, but I good in this one.

Hay...where is your new Pendleton saddle blanket??? Would have looked sweet in that picture!!! The Dsert Rose new rule is EVERYONE has to ride with their own in case we have an unscheduled overnight stay!!!

Beautiful new saddle. You will love the ligtneness of a barrel racing saddle every time you go to saddle up!

You didn't say what kind of saddle! Looks like a barrel saddle and my guess is Billy Cook, am I right?
Glad you like it, hope you get many miles of enjoyment from it :)
