Thurthingle Thursday!


Genji: Ha! I got you, didn't I? It's actualy SURCINGLE, but you gotta do what you gotta do, right? I thought it was really very manly of me to model these surcingles, even though they are not really my size.


Surcingles, in case you were wondering, are used to work horses on the long reins. Ms. S lent #1 the black one and actually gave her the brown one, which needs its straps replaced. Yesterday, #1 took them both to try them on Violette. The brown one was not big enough so the new straps will need to be longer, but the black one fitted her nicely!


#1 says that Violette looks very keen to get back to work!

  1. Violette, I did not know you had to WORK! Do you get paid a decent salary, or should you be asking for a raise?

  2. Our Person used to ground drive our ponies and horses. It is a great way to start breaking them and teach them to turn and stop. It is fun to do.

  8. Genji - that's a very big word for you - you did very well. We learned something because we had never heard of surcingles. Mom says it will be a great word to keep in mind for when she is playing Words with Friends.
