Sigh. Today was a hot, gross, nonwindy day to Elle. She pulled up into her usual parking spot, and jumped out of her small, old, and decaying BMW. Shutting the door with her heel she walked into the barn. She stopped at the entrance. Where was everyone toady? There were no horses in the cross-ties and none of the usual hustle and bustle of any normal day. The only real nose in the barns was from the horses, one whinny that stood out from the rest made her shrug Calm down Cocoa... she laughed slightly at the geldings loud calls for help At least he's not kicking his stall door anymore, that was scaring Classy half to death!
She continued walking down the barn's walkway, she slightly missed the hustle and bustle of all of the other riders, instructors, and people just boarding their horses. She made it to that boy's horses' stall. The tall mare nickered quietly at her as she passed. Elle stopped and turned to the mare, reaching out to stroke her nose but the mare responded with a bite. Elle quickly moved her hand away, and the mare's teeth made a loud snapping noise Hey! she said, trying not to be so loud First that boy is really hostle, and then I go to pet his horse and she tries to bite my fingers off! Elle rolled her eyes, walking away from the nickering mare It's almost like she's laughing at me!
Elle quickly continued to check on Classy. As usual the big gelding was fast asleep Classy, boy! she said excitedly, snapping her fingers the get his attention. The Chestnut gelding snapped to attention, probably thinking she had food God, you are so lazy! she whispered to him as he stuck his head out into the pathway. She took a minute to stroke his nose and talked softly too him He's loving this! she giggled and Classy nudged her with his nose.
She turned to the stall next to Classy's when another nose bumped her, but not in a friendly way. Cocoa was trying to bite her. Good thing they put that plank so he couldn't stick his head out of his stall! she laughed as the gelding's futile attempts He looks a lot calmer than the other day she giggled as he again attempted to bite her That's not working, you big goof! she giggled. Elle grabbed the dusty purple lead and halter off of his door hook and let herself into his stall. The gelding avoided her at all cost, raising his head reluctantly, and attempting to step on her feet. Eventually she got the halter on the gelding's head, and clipped the lead onto his halter.
He was easier to handle today, he was much calmer. With a little coaxing with a carrot, she got him walking to the small pens.
Cocoa stood still as long as he got carrots, so it was easyer to the lunge line attached to his halter. Elle removed the lead and put it over the fence Alright Cocoa, lets get you all bucked out and we'll try to get a saddle on you she said gleefully, leading him in a circle, and coaxing him to move faster with a longer whip as she waitied for him to start bucking.
