So, Yesterday Mum taught be about "BLOCK!" I found out that when she says "BLOCK" that she wants me to walk up to the big purple pastic steps that are always in the arena!
She has been asking me to do this ridiculous maneuver for MONTHS! But she never had a good word for it! Or she would ask me to "Step Up"...which TOTALLY means something different! So yesterday when she FINALLY started speakin' my language and saw my Lightbulb go off, I thought we had it made in the shade! All she wants me to do is walk up along side her while she stands above me! Do it just right and TA DA! A Carrot appears! So today she got me all dressed up in my boots and saddle and bridle and stuff and said..."BLOCK!" I walked all the way to where she was and stood right up to her and waited for my treat! TA DA!! Then she got on me! Well, that was OK too! I'm used ta that and it IS easier if I just stand still while she's gettin' on! Perfect day so far right!!? So then Mums says.."WALK!" Wait, what? Did she say BLOCK or WALK? Whatever she said, she repeated it. Hmmmm...A carrot for BLOCK and nothing for a WALK...So I just stood there! Betting on the carrot! At first I could tell Mums was confused! I like walkin' most days! I'm good at it and I can cover some ground! Wasn't like me to not move!! Suddenly she realized what she had done and what I was doing! She started laughin so hard! (Can never say Mum doesn't have a sense of humor!) and then she said...OH CRAP!! Huh...Guess OH CRAP! Means WALK...so off I went!! When she rode me back and said BLOCK I marched right over to the Purple Plastic Step thingy again. But I've never done a BLOCK with Mum on me! It was always with her standin' on the Purple thing! Thats how I knows where to stop! So I walked over the purple thing, kicked it under myself, kicked with my back footies and knocked it over. Uh....Oh....There goes my CARROT! Wait...Mum said BLOCK and took me over to the fence! She climbed off and I got my TREAT!! I HEART "BLOCK"!! Now...we just have to work on Mums vocabulary!!
