Took a few photos of King yesterday. He is, of course, fat, dirty, and hairy. But he had a bit of fun anyway. I thought I’d free lunge him in the round pen for a while. But the footing was nasty. Frozen mud. He actually looked slightly lame in there, but then I led him out and he had a little bucking spree on the lawn and looked perfectly sound. RUDE, but sound 🙂
Since he appeared to be full of steam with no way to blow it off, I turned him out with Diego and Zamaluck where the footing is marginally better. Much careening ensued.
Eventually, I put Dressy in with them too, since she was also full of steam and rudeness. More careening ensued 🙂
I’ve put in a little slideshow below with quite a few of the photos. Dressy has very obviously been hanging around with a bad crowd. She’s got her tail flagged so high in those photos that she looks more Arab than the Arabs.
I haven’t quite got all the settings figured out on the new little camera. But it didn’t do too badly considering I had the shutter speed too slow and it was a fairly drearily overcast afternoon.
