I decided to take Bella for a walk and the boys sure did get some exercise! What a couple of dorks. The galloped and reared and played bitey-face until they were soaked with sweat. So I guess the way to get Scout back in shape is to take Bella for walks. :)
Not the best picture, but here they are, complete with dust cloud:
After taking a break to do some housework, I couldn't stand it, I had to saddle Bella up. She hasn't worn a saddle since Easter, but I can't remember if that was last year or the year before. Anyway, she is a wonder. I don't know many horses that you can hop on and ride in a halter after so much time off. Especially horses that were once wild and have limited training. But it was hard on her. I think her lameness is worse. And of course she's fat and out of shape.
This is her, "Can I have a treat?" face. She's so cute and sweet.
I spent some time with Luc also. Took him out of the pasture to eat some alfalfa (he's thinnish) and then his attitude left a lot to be desired so we did some slow circles with direction changes and a fair amount of backing out of my space and standing there. Then we had some quiet time. I noticed some really tense muscles in front of his shoulders so I worked on getting them to release. I think he enjoyed that.
