So I am here because I must ask do you all know what Diablo means?! Well I do but I'm thinking my Hubby has missed the memo on this!! Not really, but he is seriously a pushover or sucker for lack of a better word...Have I shared this with you before? Do you know that this man will do whatever he can to help someone! Even if it means taking ownership of "Devil" aka Diablo?!?!
Well yep that's it we now own a "Devil" and I must call him by his name because that's what he is!! OH so you want to know who this is and why we now own him?! Well the lady that bought Ebony owned this 4 yr gelding that she needed to sell because she can't afford board for 2 horses. Well but that's not the only reason, the real truth is this horse is a mess! I don't know how long she owned him but she didn't make a smart purchase when she actually paid money for this horse, and from what I gather he wasn't cheap.
Anyhoo, the Hubby comes in today and says "we're going to take a trip to the city to pick up this horse"....Me~ "what horse"?! Hubby~ "oh you know the one that the lady that bought Ebony owns". Me~ "WHAT?!?! You mean the BAD horse"?! Hubby~ "well he's not bad.....He just bites and kicks and, and, and etc...." UHHH yeah seriously Peeps somebody better get over here and intervene before I knock him in the noggin!!! Of course only to try and knock some sense in there!! And please don't get me wrong this is one of the reason's I LOVE my Hubby so much! He has a heart of gold, but this time he's just plain WRONG!!!
Well of course we went to the city to pick up the Devil and when we pull up his owners are standing there being knocked around and pushed by this horse! I wanted to fly out of the truck and give him a lesson in ground manners right there!! Much to my surprise he loaded right into the trailer, however I was worried because it's a slant load and I wasn't sure if he'd ever been in one! So he was good for about a millisecond, then whats he do?....He rears! In the trailer! OMGosh he is gonna get stuck over the divider!! So we end up tying him both top and bottom (we couldn't leave his head loose as he was trying to turn around in the stall)! He threw a fit most of the way home...
So as expected we stop off at our good friend and horse trainers house Cowboy S so he can take a peek at this little bad runt we have. Devil got a little mini lesson on ground manners because when Cowboy S grabbed him he thought he would just mow him right down! Good thing is Devil learns pretty quick he just forgets after a few minutes...So Cowboy S hop's on Devils back to see how he responds to that and he wasn't bad at all. So for now Devil is in a pen all by himself and the Hubby will figure out what to do with this little project. UGHH!! Men!
