We have walked about 20 minutes or about a mile and half on the hard pack two days in a row.  Doesn't seem to be making any difference in either leg, but at least it's not hurting anything and it will increase circulation.  Yesterday Nina thought it was kind of fun, today she was bored after a few minutes.  She would lag behind, then surge ahead, lean on me a little, pin her ears every time I told her to quit whatever it was she was doing.  Once I glanced down and realized that she was very silently and with great stealth about to bite me on the forearm.  She went sideways a few feet when she realized I was looking at her, I didn't do anything, just caught her eye and her guilt did her in. 
The wind was howling, about the fourth time we stomped through a dust devil she gave me the evil eye for about 5 minutes. 
Gad, horses are fun.


  1. That's a funny story about the stealth bite attempt. I can just see her :)

  2. Nina is such a character! But ouch! A stealth bite? Do horses bite hard? Or is it more like a threatening gesture that just pinches? I learn things about horses all the time from you--hehe! ;)

    I absolutely love the new picture of fiesty Nina jumping. I know I've told you that, but every time your blog opens I think what a beautiful horse and a great shot! :)

  3. I'm glad you like the pic, I do too. Horses have huge powerful jaws and can bit hard enough to break each others bones. I think Nina was trying to sneak a little nip or even grab my shirt, she was entertaining herself.

  4. She sounds so much like Ozzy..
