Hi everyone, Chrome here. First off I would show you my big happy smile, but as you saw in my post yesterday I'm losing my baby teeth so my smile isn't very pretty right now. Just so you know I am smiling over my exciting, happy news! Instead I'll share snow pictures in my post. Mom said I wasn't supposed to share them until tomorrow, but I'm a star now, so I can do whatever I want.
You didn't know I was a star? Oh, that's right! I forgot to tell you my news! I am officially the winner of the Adventure Animals category of the famous Mango Minster 2012. Check out the post here: http://mangominster.blogspot.com/2012/02/adventure-animals-winners.html. Thank you so much Dave and Zim from AO4! I never expected to win. :D
If you're out of the loop lately and missed my post, here is my entry into the Mango Minster: http://rdxhorses.blogspot.com/2012/01/mango-minster-2012-entry.html. I posted a video my mom made that shows all of my Firsts of 2011. It showed off all of my adventurous skills like wearing all the crazy things my mom can come up with, standing on a scary homemade pedestal and tasting all sorts of weird treats my momma offers me. I bravely did it all without hesitation! I tell you living on this farm is always an adventure!
And don't worry, the adventures don't stop here!! My mom has a lot more crazy stuff planned for this year. She even tells me that she's going to climb on my back like my new friend Arty Mouse: http://alasandra2003.blogspot.com/2012/01/my-adventure-with-chrome-by-arty-mouse.html. She tells me that's why she's doing crazy stuff like this: http://rdxhorses.blogspot.com/2012/01/chrome-wears-our-new-aussie-saddle.html!! Well I can tell you I'm not sure I like that idea because she weighs a lot more than my buddy Arty Mouse!! Since I am such a great adventurer I will go with it though!
To start off 2012 I've already braved huge blizzard snow storms! Check out the snow in that picture above! I stick my tongue out at death! A little snow can't bring me down. (Note from mom: We barely got two inches, he's exaggerating now!). How adventurous is that?
See, even my forelock froze!
Mom wanted me to show you my snow covered mane. She says it's pretty. I think it's manly, but just to show her my opinion, check out the tongue! Oh yeah!
Also because mom is a wimp and has to have an umbrella out in blizzard conditions (note from momma: the umbrella was to keep snow off of the camera), she even had to hassle me with it . . . while I ate breakfast!! How insulting.
Holding the umbrella over my head while I eat. Also just a little horsie lesson here for you dogs and cats reading this post. We do NOT like objects over our heads because we can't look up and see it like you guys can. It causes us to panic because our heads/throats are venerable to attack from predators like . . . um . . . bears. Yeah bears, not wild doggies (wolves) or wild kitties (mountain lions/panthers), just bears. So the fact that I let mom hold this stupid thing over my head where I can't see it clearly while I'm eating is pretty brave.
And over my butt. I think she was just using me to block the wind off of herself. Wimp!
More umbrella and snowy mane.
And mom says this last picture is her favorite because I look so graceful and fancy. Do you think I look handsome in this picture?
So anyway, I just wanted to share the news about my win and tell Mango, Mango Momma, Zim and Dave thank you so much!!! I'm really excited about this. Mom says this proves that I have what it takes to compete so now I have to do horse shows! I hope those are fun! So stick around guys because things are going to be interesting this year if I decide to let mom do this riding thing that she's so intent on doing. Later guys!!
P.S. Momma wants to know if you want her to let me have a post every couple of weeks where I get to do the talking?
