By Jan Westmark-Allan What a funny horse!! (or maybe just a funny photographer!) Spirit doing his smile trick on command – curling up his lip.
By Jan Westmark-Allan Spirit – pretending to be a Wild Stallion (when he was younger) Spirit, the new Sidelines mascot, is really not a Wild Stallion of The Cimarron or even of North Carolina! He is a gelding and very sweet! Today we took our first trail ride and he was PERFECT – he led the trail ride and never flinched. When we returned to the barn he did countless tricks for three young riders at the barn – they certainly thought they were at a circus!! I felt a little bit like I was at a circus too – just trying to tack up! Apparently the cue for bowing with one knee all the way down on the ground is to touch his stomach with a lead rope.
