Greetings to all! It's me, Mags! Ragnar and I took our mom and dad on a nice, long walk this morning! We did a loop around the Kansas State University football stadium and the Vet School, then headed back toward home. We had already hit the 6 mile mark when we smelled something incredible! Ragnar was the first to smell it - then I did. Finally, Mom and Dad saw what had us all pumped up -- there were HORSES in CiCo Park!!!
You know we love cows -- but wow, horses are even better! I knew Mom and Dad were getting tired, so I didn't think we'd be able to go over to the park to see them. Ragnar REALLY wanted to, though, and ... well ... let's just say Dad has a really hard time saying "no" to either one of us!
We crossed over the big street and headed into the park, then got a good look at our new friends!
|"The park's FULL of horses, Ragnar!"|
"I told you I smelled them, Mags!"
|"Hi, lady! That's a beautiful horse you've got there!"|
|"I think they're having a horse meeting down here, Mags."|
"Must be a show of some sort, Raggi. Let's check it out."
We watched by the fence for a while. There were people riding, people making their horses go in circles, they were doing all kinds of cool stuff! We especially liked this guy:
|"Hi, horse! Good luck with whatever you're doing!"|
"Yeah! And to your little cowboy there, too!"
Sure, it tacked on about another 3/4 of a mile or so to an already long walk, but it was HORSES! What a great day!
PS: For the record, if we were the excitable sort or barked or did other things that would excite the horses, Mom and Dad wouldn't have let us go over there. We don't want to cause issues for any of the participants at the event!
