I love how momma and BD just stand there and basically ignore Yalla's silly antics

Wonderful!

Were any of those 'sponks?'

No, today's lesson was in rollbacks and bucks. ;) However, in the last video I posted, she does one or two pronks. She jumps straight up and down while still moving forward, like an antelope. I believe it's also called a stot.

Stot is a common word in Scots, meaning to bounce (or to walk with a bounce). Uses in this case include stotting a ball off a wall or rain stotting off a pavement. Pronking comes from the Afrikaans word "pronk", to show off, strut or prance.

When startled, horses can stot in the manner of cats. However, horses also stot in apparent pleasure or as a way to release excess energy. This is seen often in polo ponies as they leave the playing field, in trained rodeo horses before and after timed speed events, as well as in horses who are loose in a field, particularly young horses.

I wish I had all of Yalla's spunk and energy! I would love to be able to jump, buck, kick, and run! Gosh, she gets cuter every day!

Awwww. I could never tire of seeing her romp and play. It's so funny, how she can be standing still...and then Wooooo! There she goes!
And seeing Annie and Baby Doll just standing there, while all of Yalla's energy takes over, makes me smile. I wonder if they can remember their own playful times as a foal.
Time flies....

There is nothing more delightful then seeing a baby foal test out their long legs. It makes me teary every time! It always looks like they are going to just lose control of their "wheels" and crash into something, LOL! I love Yalla's little white star!
