Warp Speed


Doing a little roadwork today.... enjoy this quickie video of O trucking along. She starts out zooming, and you'll see her chill out and settle by the end of it. She is in flaming heat right now, and I got to experince what happens when a mare squirts horrible nasty pee while she is trotting at high speed and you are sitting behind her. I'll leave the details up to your imaginations.



She had some BIG SPOOKS today at passing vehicles... thankfully nothing serious, but she was really on edge due to being in heat. A huge rumbling tractor, a rattling trailer, and an inconsiderate Jeep that blew past going at least 45 on our back road all caused her to have some freakouts - but she kept herself under wraps, responded to a whoa, and held it together. She definitely didn't relax until the very end though... she is SO very adrift in the estrogen ocean right now. Hopefully she'll be out by this weekend!







Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
