"Good morning, love!" I gave Sarah a quick peak on the lips. Then I jumped out of the bed. This has been the first night in the new house, but more importantly the horses first night in the new, little stable near the house! I was SO looking forward to see how it went, especially because Bobby (read: DEE Batteries not Included) is only about... six months old. This was his first night away from his mommy.
Lucky we got Mumi (read: DEE Mumford) to keep him company. That was actually why I leased Mumi - and because I really liked his mindset. He is so calm and rational! Will be a good teacher for Bobby, when we start training him.
"Well, good morning to you too!" I heard her laugh, and turned the front to her. Must have zoned out, I thought with a smirk. I snapped back to looking at my girlfriend just in time to hear her say: "Therese, you look like a five-year-old at Christmas morning. You are such a child!"
"I might be child-like, but I rule." I crossed my arms in a defensive manor, but a smirk spread on my lips, when I saw her shake her head. Then I pulled the bed-covers of her.
"Hey!" She yelled at me, goosebumps spreading all over her legs.
"Hay is for horses." I stuck out my tongue, but kept talking "Talking about horses, my little baby needs to be taken care of - and Mumi too."
"Always the horses. You spend more time with them, than you do with me." Sarah crossed her arms, shaking her head in a I-cannot-believe-it-you-dork manor. And she was right, it was all about the horses. They were my life, and she knew and accepted that. That was an agreement we made, already before we started dating. Or at least before it got serious.
"You can just join me at the stable?" Winking at her I got to the closet, trying to find something to put on. Most likely my green sweater of wool and something yoga-pant-ish. But I couldn't find it!
"Hunny?" I asked her with a frustrated gesture, but she couldn't see that because I had my head inside the ?closet (no pun intended).
"Whaaat?" She yelled, like she couldn't hear me, or like I was fare away.
"Where is my stable-clothes?" I answered, if possible, even more frustrated.
"Why do you need to know?" And just like that I got why she was acting weird. I giggled with my hands i front of my mouth.
"We are talking about the greater good!" I tried really hard not to laugh, but failed miserably.
"Greater good? I'M YOUR WIFE! I'm the greatest good you are EVER gonna get!" Frozone and Wife-quotes, God gracious, I just LOVE this woman. Wait... was that a giggle? Indeed that was a giggle!
"Miss Fischer was that a giggle I heard?" I could see that she tried to hide it.
"Noo?" She said still trying really hard not to laugh or burst out in tears of laughing. And that was when I started to tickle her.
This went on for a long time, before I got her talked into going to the stable with me. But I really don't understand how she can be the girlfriend of a horsewoman and still wear sandals at the stable. She don't like the stable, or horses for that matter, but for some reason puts up with it all anyway.
When we got to the stable - okay, face it. The stable isn't that fare from the house. We got the pen just beside the horse, and the stable just beside it - I whistled at Mumi, because I knew he knew the sound and it's meaning from his owner. It meant that food would soon arrive. And Bobby reacted too, when he saw Mumi do it. He was suddenly inside the small pen just outside his stall, trying to reach the nearest person just outside the pen.
"Hi boy!" I pat his neck and gave him a little snack, before I went to work inside the stable. He followed me inside the stable through his stall. And Mumi just ignored him, until I found him some food. Like these kinds of horses always do.
When I was done with the most important work Sarah and I - to be true it was only me, but Sarah went with me - took Bobby and Mumi to the arena. It wasn't easy, because Bobby wanted to canter, and Mumi just walked reeeeally slow. When I let them loose, inside the arena, they both ran around. Mumi was the fastest at first, but Bobby was cheeky and tried to kick Mumi.
"Hey Bobby! Be nice or he will make you." I put an arm around Sarah, looking at the horses.
"Shouldn't we leave?" She asked.
"We cannot let them alone in the arena. I have to keep an eye on them." Sarah just nodded in agreement and leaned into me, as I laid an arm around her middle too. We watched the boys running around in the arena. Watching Bobby trying to kick Mumi and Mumi just ignoring him. These crazy foals, haha.
After half an hour, Bobby was all done running around. Yes, he was the fastest one, but Mumi was more stubborn than him. And more fit. In the end, Bobby just laid down, breathing hard.
"That little crazy boy." I laughed and smiled to Sarah.
"Yeah, all your horses have a little bit of crazyness inside of them." It seemed like Sarah liked watching them afterall. And then I put on halters at both of the boys and took them to the stables.
