    Default Tate, a horse, and me having high anxiety

    On this Memorial Day, I spent the day at my cousin Howard's house. He invited me and specifically asked that Tate and Finn come along too. Of course, when anyone (friends or family), invites my boys, I'm pretty darn thrilled.

    I had a great time seeing all my family members and Tate and Finn got all gussied up for the get together:

    Howard and his family have 3 horses and here's Tate meeting Charlie for the very first time:

    and curiously looking into the ring:

    As two of the horses galloped around the ring for their daily exercise, Tate and Finn both would get very excited and start barking at them. Tate even ran towards the ring, trying to get close to them as you can see from these pics:

    -img_6712-jpg-img_6713-jpg

    It was at this time that because Tate may have been aggravating the horse that I heard a very loud "WHACK!". My brother was yelling at me to grab Tate b/c he said the horse's hoof just missed kicking Tate in the face! I rushed over to get Tate the hell out of there and checked to see that he was okay. Thankfully, he was fine but I was a nervous wreck. Just a few minutes after this incident, Tate again rushed the fence and this time got into the ring. I was frantically yelling for him to come back, ran into the ring, grabbed him by the harness and hauled his a$$ out of there! I swear, I needed some hard liquor by then!

    After that, I made sure to keep Tate far away from the ring, held onto his harness firmly, and we watched the horses from a distance!

    and here's my Finn telling his momma to "just relax and smell the roses"...everything turned out okay

    Hope everyone had lovely Memorial Day Weekend

    Good question. Finn likes to act like a tough cookie but deep down he was a little more spooked by the horses than his brother was. Finn was definitely barking up a storm on the sidelines though!

    @pdolphin27 and @dieMuttivonBifi, all my relatives were amazed at Tate's fearlessness too. That boy must've thought the horses were some very big "dogs" that he wanted to play with in the ring!

    Lol, that must have been scary, and thank goodness Tate is okay, that could have been way more dangerous, if the horse had decided to run at Tate. He wanted a new playmate. Looks like everyone had a great time. I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day with your family.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Scary for sure but otherwise it sounds like they had a great time.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    YeeeHaw, sounds like Tate and Finn has a very adventureous day there Henny. Tate was quite the curious one I see. Loved he picture and Finn had the right idea - sometimes you just gotta stop what you're doing and smell the roses. So......how much did you drink after Tate getting into the ring?
