The Rio and Scottie Saga

Rio made the move to the new barn today- Flower Mound Farm. I work late today, so I can’t even go see him, but thankfully amazing Trainer and MM have been sending me tons of snaps and pics. Here is a photo story or Rio’s interaction with his newest friend (MM’s horse), as I imagine they would interact.

Rio: “HEY. Hey I’m Rio. Let’s be BEST FRIENDS. Look how high I can lift my leg! I’m so fun and awesome! And handsome, like so so handsome. I know because my mom tells me ALL the time!”

Scottie: “Umm… idk if we can be friends. You seem kind of high maintenance…and you have really big ears. Just look at them!”

Rio: “No way! Look, I am so chill. I can just hang out and chill all day. I won’t even lift my leg high anymore. From down here my ears don’t even look big. And we are like twinsies. I heard our moms say that.”

Scottie: “I mean… I guess… you smell kind of ok so maybe. Let me think about it.”

Rio: “UGH NO. I’m completely awesome and I guess you just can’t see that. I mean, look how amazing and archy my neck is! And I can flip my mane like nobody’s business!”

Scottie: “Fine. We’re done. You seem too uppity. I vote we just ignore each other.”

Rio: Ignores Scottie
