Misty's Monday Muse - Cow Pony?

The cow pony Percheron! 

MyLady took me to cattle sorting again.  It was our 2nd time.  We're not very spry and agile, so the heifers slip by us easily.  But we had a little success and a lot of fun.  And it's a great confidence builder.

After sorting, I participated in my favorite event of the day - the resting event.  When it comes to resting, I can't be beat.  It's all about how to prop your toe and cock your hip.  I'm very good at it because I have ample hip to cock and I practice a lot.  But you can see I had some stiff competition.

The Resting Competition
I don't know who that little sorrel horse is on my left.  But it's a good thing we are both peace-loving equines since we are resting "cheek to cheek."  The cutie on my right with the knee-hi white stockings is my friend Cheyenne.  He is a Spotted Saddle Horse.  He was my sorting partner.   This was our 3rd date.  We've gone out on two trail rides before and hit it off right away.  Cheyenne has a lady friend at home, but when he's out with me, he can't keep his eyes off me.  He looks longingly for me when his owner rides him away from me and he nickers sweetly to me when they return.  Cheyenne loves me.

Wanna know what Cheyenne is whispering to that gelding on his right?  He's saying,  "Hey buddy, you see that big beautiful mare to my left?  She's with me.  Eat your heart out."  Or maybe he's saying, "Hey Dude, I'm out with my girl and I just pooped.  Is it hidden by my tail alright?"

Cattle sorting.  It's not just for Quarter Horses anymore,

Time to Say Goodbye

It's alright.
It's not sad.  
It's a good thing.

It's time to say goodbye to the Christmas decorations.
Goodbye Birdies

Goodbye Doggies

Goodbye Horsies

We'll see ya'll in about eleven months.

I must report one Christmas decor casualty.
A Santa hat placed atop a lamp shade is no longer a Christmas decoration.

We found it on the floor, a little tattered.

Bella had claimed it as her own.

It was promoted to Christmas dog toy.

Goodbye 2011
Hello 2012
