This is probably not in the safe-activities-with-horses category, but it was fun nonetheless.
Steve was riding Lena yesterday and walked up to me after warming her up so we could switch. On a whim, I ran off to my left, Lena's right, as they faced me. We'd done this a few times before, but not for awhile, and with varying reactions from her.
This time was different.
Those big ears went back, her head came down, and for all you'd have guessed from watching her, I was a cow. Well, probably not really, but she nonetheless went right into cow-mode and it was awesome to watch.
I only wish I had four legs and more stamina. :-)
Definitely a case where I could tell she was having fun not just going through the motions.
