just goofin around

As promised, I still have some random photos of my beloved Bali that will eventually find their way onto this blog. Including this fun little sequence haha. I mean, why not, right? This blog is essentially my digital photo album anyway...

Plus who could resist that face?!?

You see, Bali is a very playful horse. We ultimately moved him into the more rough-n-tumble geldings herd with the idea that they might teach him some manners. Turns out, he just made friends with whom he would play nonstop all day long. Like his buddy Calypso, above.


And Wick too! Wick obviously didn't want to be left out of the fun!!

Except they're not really the most graceful group. As evidenced by Bali nearly eating shit here haha. And this front section of the field is somewhat long and narrow in shape, so they'd just run back and forth, back and forth. lol

And Bali would obviously have you believe that he is quite Fierce & Fancy. Obvi. Calypso is a little more... derpy haha. 

My personal favorite of their many moves is the synchronized Halt, Stare, Snort, then Turn-n-RUN pattern. Which they executed flawlessly every time. Seriously these horses could have been their own drill team.
 

And it just went on and on. With Bali typically instigating, and Calypso more than happy to oblige.
 
 

Except, obviously, when there are pretty mares around :)

Oh dear Bali, your pasture mates miss you too!!

  3. oh geldings... haha. The mare are much too dignified for that group! They would be great entertainment...maybe have a whole gelding act, starting with synchronized Halt, Stare, Snort, then Turn-n-RUN.

    1. meeeee too! they never really did very much, aside from just playing halters or whatever, before bali came. but maybe now that bali showed them the way they'll still go at it even tho he's gone?
