Haha, just kidding. He was standing up after enjoying a roll and I timed the picture just right hehe.
This week is going to be very busy, but I'll try to work with Zep as much as possible. :D I feel bad locking him up in the round pen though... I guess I can try luring Zep into the round pen when it's time to work with him.... I'll figure it out.
One last thing I wanted to mention is my ride on Chrome today. My dad had to work all night so he was out doing yard work today to keep himself awake. I decided to ride Chrome since the weather was perfect. I put my helmet on, put his bridle on and led him up to the hay bale we've been stepping over to use it as a mounting block. I lined him up between the bale and a tree (because that's where it was sitting) and stepped up... it was a little short. I was feeling lazy so I swung my leg over his back anyway and grabbed the tree and pulled myself onto his back LOL! It was hilarious! I didn't plan it, but it worked perfectly.
So I followed dad around while he was pruning trees and doing other yard work. He was driving the four wheeler around the yard. At one point he started up the driveway and I started trotting Chrome after him. Chrome loved "chasing" the four wheeler!!! As we were trotting along we went over the culvert and on the down slope Chrome tried to canter! He had lowered his head (going uphill), I was riding bareback and he totally caught me off guard to I pulled him up before he could break into the canter. If I'd been in the saddle and not caught so off guard I probably would have let him canter. I'm curious what it's going to be like. I really like his trot. This is only his third ride that I've done more than just a couple of trot strides and he's doing so awesome!
I just wanted to share that. Tomorrow I'll share my plans for Chrome with everyone. I've been thinking long and hard about his exercise program and I've finally made a decision! :D
P.S. I rode him for about twenty five minutes, mostly at the walk, and he was still raring to go. :D
