flightlessbird This is Little Bird and Cannon. I get the privilege of giving lessons to her a couple times a week. Her favorite part is at the end of the lessons, when she gets to walk Cannon around in the round pen. She loves to let her take a drink of water or let her sneak a nibble of leftover hay. And Cannon just loves her, and totally recognizes that she is delicate and tiny, but Birdee has no awareness that Cannon is so much bigger than her, she's just so fearless and comfortable out there. I love this little girl ruthlessly, and I love how good my horse is so we can do lessons for her. #mylifeiscomplete. 4d

flightlessbird Me and my lady. I can't get over what an awesome horse she has become. She also reminds me so much of Time, it makes it hard to believe that Time has just been gone a year. Cannon has done so well lately that we are starting to give lessons on her. I love her. So much. And I'm starting to think that she is a little partial to me also. #cannonpony #overopaint #apha 5d

flightlessbird Realized, yesterday, that Cannon's muzzle likes surprisingly like Potato's skin. So many wrinkles and so much peachfuzz. Does this mean I'm riding a giant hairless cat? 2w

flightlessbird It rained yesterday, and it always cracks me up to hear people complain about it. I LOVE the rain, and someday I'll move further north to Portland or Seattle to be in it more. I happen to love how the yard looks in the rain, so I stood out and took a couple pictures of the foliage. Worth it. It was a warm rain. #rainisagoodthing. 2w
  •   courtneypdx Totally agree with you. And nothing better than a summer rain. 2w
  •   jennibruce We sat in the pool and hot tub last night as a huge rainstorm came in. It was awesome! 2w

flightlessbird This amazing little mare and I are doing the Dry Creek Extreme trail trials starting on Saturday (which is basically an obstacle course for horses). She overcame her fears and we had some serious trust exercises in the course, including the tractor tire climb (which she did, no problem, but I was actually the one scared of them). Proud of my girl, proud she is my horse, and impressed by her heart to try new things! #cannonpony #overopaint #apha #trailtrials #extremetrail #drycreekextreme 3w

flightlessbird Crazy Ears McGee. So I'm posting my nutty dog tonight, because I haven't seen Potato in a while, and there are tons of Cannon pictures and only one of my derpdog. So here, in my 2 week absence, is Miss Laguna. Sorry I've been gone lately, life has been very chaotic the last couple weeks. Started a new job though, so that's good. Maybe things will settle down now. 4w

flightlessbird I am very overwhelmed by all of the new followers and compliments I've been receiving. It's hard for an introvert to know how to react. So hello to the new faces, (I post horses and cats mostly and sometimes a pit bull or tattoo occasionally), and welcome. Thank you to everyone, new friends and old, for leaving such sweet comments about my new tattoo, I am overloaded with love and I appreciate it all so much. I re-read the comments on the last picture a few times a day. I don't know how to respond. You are the sweetest. Thank you. Very much. I am equally humbled by this experience and grateful for it. 2mon

flightlessbird From the GoPro today (for those of you who have seen this on Facebook, it's being overshared and I'm not sorry). These are clips from our speed barrels and cloverleaf barrel run. Not the best, but for our first try together, I was pretty happy about all of it. Especially racing with a GoPro strapped to the saddle! Wee!! #cannonpony #barrelracing #apha #gymkhana #overopaint #birdsonthebacksofhorses 2mon
  •   debbie_d36 Amazing video. Thank you for sharing. I'll have to find you on fb. 2mon
  •   speakhorse Rad!!! 2mon

flightlessbird My little pony after her post-workout bath. Tomorrow is our first gymkhana day together and I'm looking forward to competing again after so many years of being "retired". Cannon is not a fan of baths, however she did tolerate my shampooing and conditioning for over an hour. And then immediately rolled when I put her back in the pasture. #jerk.

flightlessbird #tbt usually consists of this car for me. So to the new followers, let me introduce you: this is my mom's first car, her 1957 Chevy Bel Air. It's been in a photo shoot shoot or two, and has even been made into a most gorgeous painting done by the renowned and incredibly talented @gogueart. She doesn't have a name, we mostly just refer to her as "the Chevy" or "the 57". And in high school, I got to drive her for most of my senior year, making me lots of guy-friends and plenty of girl-enemies. This particular photo of me and The 57 was taken by one of the few chick-friends that I made in high school, Jo with Visualize Photography. 2mon
