Am I Awful For Cursing at a Dead Horse?
Now, he didn't just die. I'm not that kind of person.
Back in July, we had to put down my DH's horse. He was the horse that led me to joyously post this thread.
But this horse, underneath his Sainthood, was a royal PITA. He was a horse that I feel lucky to have known, but I know that if I had met him as a youngster on the track that I would have wanted to strangle him. He had a wicked sense of humor and loved to be just a little bit difficult. Among other things, he liked to dig around the water trough. I have moved the trough to a new location, but the hole has never gotten filled in. It (hole) is no longer in the horse area due to fencing changes, it is just off the main travel path. But tonight, I got distracted, veered off the path, and stepped in the hole. I turned my ankle and went down, spilling beet pulp all over me.
I was not hurt, just spooked the pony a bit when I went splat. I should have filled in that hole a long time ago...And I know Hemi was laughing at me from wherever he is. As I flexed my ankle to make sure everything still worked, I shouted a curse in his general direction, then laughed with him.
