Duncan had a good day today. For the first time in years…okay, in ever…he and I are casually close to some rugged trails.
Today, thanks to a nearby horsie friend, I had an introduction to same–ditches and intense short steep slopes and rocks and trees and oh the fun! He started off planting his feet like he owned the place and ended up thoughtful, tired, and very much pleased with himself.
Definitely a good day.
So it also seems like a good day to post his recent Photos of Might, in which he was impressing…okay, I haven’t figured out just who he’s trying to impress when he goes into paddock-rocket mode. He sees/smells something to the north of us, that’s all I can say.
Also I can add the usual disclaimer, which is…one-handed camera work, longe whip in the other hand to make myself bigger, and yah, very much watching my exit routes with the back of my head. Because, y’know, I was in the paddock with him…

“Gosh,” you think. “He looks awfully collected.” Because…yeah, he’s going full blast, and see that post there? That’s the CORNER.
Horse in Flight. He must have made that corner…
I just love these pics. He is just stunning to look at. And he certainly looks to be having a grand old time.
Heather, he was having much fun indeed! He likes it when I go in there with him; it gives him a chance to show off.
He’s a beautiful horse. Proud of himself too. lol
Crysta, he definitely has a certain Awareness of Self. ;>
Duncan Oh look at me I’m WONDERFUL!!
Peggy: Strut strut strut!
Woo-Woo! What a delighted DuncanHorse! Love ALL the pictures. (Not bad for one-handed. You sure you don’t have an extra hand that only appears when you need to take super pictures?) ‘Way to go, DuncanHorse, keep up the great work.
Laurie, I like that extra hand idea. I’m going to work on that…
Great horse! Great pictures! Great horsemom!
Elizabeth–heh. Way to give me the silly grins!
He is just so gorgeous! I want to kiss his nose! 🙂
Tori–why, gosh–I seem to know that feeling! ;>
Got more of those trails–and a horse trailer to drive to them as well. In a few dry weeks (if we ever have that since it might rain tomorrow), when the trails are good, you can consider any of 3 15,000 to 30,000 acre parks that are within 20 minutes, plus a 1500 acre one that we used to be able to get to from, here, but alas, there has been “progress”. (Was dying to capitalize progress, but one can only be a copy-cat so often). Risa had fun too. Off to watch Andalusian videos, then get ready for tomorrows shaggy show. Not so sure if Penny and Dart might not make the show management cancel as they will be leaving their shaggy all over the arena and me and anyone who gets close. AAAA…Choo.
