I’ve mentioned before, Astrid really wants the lead mare spot. It shows during the times of silly horse play…sometimes she’s playing, and then, she gets serious in her attempts to over throw Queen Ruby.
This series started out as the Girls having fun, kicking up their heels with a weather change that brought sunshine and a warm wind after a cold snap…then it turned to, well, just watch Astrid’s facial expressions, compared to Ruby’s. 😉
Since it was warming up, every one had some ice down their spines…right in that divet we affectionately call their “starvation pudge”. 😛 A roll helps scrub that ice off, and scratch the itches Mama misses.
Ruby’s just enjoying the weather, playing…Astrid’s like “Ima kick her butt!” I love seeing Ruby in the air like that. We make fun of her for being our “Fat Girl”, but Girl can move!
Of course, I’m not offering any help. I’m too busy taking pictures and laughing…and if you look at Ruby, she looks like she’s amused too.
I figure if Astrid really wants to challenge Ruby, she best be prepared to take her lumps. Ruby, however, is totally unconcerned here. She knows she’s the Queen.
K is for Kick Up Your Heels.
