I am posting this story at the request of a friend on Facebook:
I had just finished riding Irish and had him cooling in the cross ties. All of a sudden Acero comes flying into his stall, dancing around, shaking his head, banging against the stall door.
Acero: "GETITOFF, GETITOFF, GETITOFF"
Me: "Steele what are you doing?"
Acero: 'owowowowow. getitOFF!'
Me (in a stern voice): 'Steele stop it!'
Acero goes flying out of his stall and into Irish's. Further dancing ensues.
Me: "Irish do you know what's going on?"
I suddenly spy the horse fly on his wither.
Acero: 'thankyou! You are AWESOME, The best really.'
me to Irish "Does this happen often"
Irish "you have no idea!" I am sure that he rolled his eyes too!
Acero: "is it supper time yet? I think it's supper time. I'm hungry. I'm sure it's supper time. Can we eat now? how about now? Now?'
Me: 'yes, now.'
