I got Lucy out of the pasture and tied her up to the trailer. You can see she doesn't have much room to move around. That is due to all of the treasures that are piled beside her. I guess I could also tack her up in the barn but all my saddles are still in the horse trailer from our last outing. While I was brushing Lucy I noticed a lump. It's a strange lump. The lump is on her rump (I sound like Dr. Seuss). Here is what it looks like.
See, weird right? I do not know what it is. You can push on it and she doesn't mind it. It's kinda like a puffy thing. An interesting note, when she walks that leg is funny. When she brings it forward she kinda throws it down. Like she is stiff in her hocks or her stifle. I am not sure. I do know she kinda just thumps her leg down. Not much movement in her fetlock. I am thinking she might have arthritis, but what is up with that lump? So, can anyone out there solve Lucy's mysterious lump?
She is such a funny horse. She really loves people. I think Lucy loves treasures too. There even is a kitchen sink. That has been there for years. I am not too sure what one might need that sink for? I know what a sink is used for but what would someone want with that old nasty sink? Maybe in case the bugs want to wash their wings? Well, after we got all tacked up I headed over the the pasture to where I was going to ride. And while we were walking we passed up some more treasures.
Yep, that is a bucking bull there. With a wheelbarrow that has had a flat for........well.....about forever. Lucy is such a good sport. She doesn't mind those scary treasures. She just walks right on by. I warmed her up behind my house and then Lucy and I went on a short trail ride with two other riders. We rode down the street. She is really good. I should have taken more pictures of our ride, but somehow it's hard to hold a camera and ride at the same time. I will have to perfect my photo taking skills while riding a horse. Maybe when I have ridden Lucy more than three times. Our riding times have been limited with all of our afternoon thunderstorms. I will leave you all with some pictures of what our afternoon thunderstorms leave us, besides a lot of rain. They leave us with some really beautiful sunsets.
It kinda looks like a mushroom cloud. But that sunlight shinning through was amazing. The photos really don't do it justice.
Until next time, y'all come back now ya hear!
