Bad Mamma Jamma and an EPIC CTJ Meeting

Blu was my horse from March of 2006 to November of 2008. We had some crazy times, some great times, some frustrating times and some simply marvelous and bonding times.
When I made the decision to sell her it was heartbreaking not only for me but for Mr. P as well.
She found a spectacular place to live with a great owner and rules the roost.
But..... Blu has turned into a very very very bad pony. So I went to go help Ann and see what the issue is. Ann has her for sale because of the bad behavior and she asked me to come over.
It was crystal clear, Blu has reached her Supreme Alpha Status and being an ARAB Mare this was an easy task to Master. She has turned into a spoiled rotten mare-motional PITA.

So in between picture taking we I mean ME worked on refreshing Blu of some of her skills. A CTJ meeting was in short order and HOLY HOOVES OF MOTHER MARY, it was a DOOZY! She reared, bucked, bolted, " in airs" Lipizzaner style over and over again.
Well, the " mean mamma jamma mojo" came out and I schooled her in proper manners. Poor Ann.. She has a brat on her hands!! She kept saying " doesnt that scare you?" I said No.. and if it did I would never let her know it did. She was a tornado on a rope for almost 30 minutes.
But when it was all said and done and her EPIC tantrum was over, this is how it ended.
Lovely and quiet and calm.

I got on bareback, did some bending, wither scratches and hugs and called it a day.

I gave Ann some homework and some pointers and will check in periodically to see if she has grown some " man parts" she needs to get a grip on Blu's tantrums and Self-appointed and newly acquired "Alpha Mare Status"
Is she not the most gorgeous horse ever????? Shawn and her were in love , so he skipped going out today it is still too hard... He did however text me and ask how she was while I was there. :)

She is REALLY a pretty horse, and it looks like you were both happy to see each other :)

I'm glad you could help Ann out!

Those big doe eyes are quite deceiving!

She was so naughty, I was shocked actually that I kept my cool and just worked through it all.

We were very happy to see each other, and boy does she rule the ROOST!

Blu is stunning! You look pretty good up there, too.

I bet you were one tough chic what with you on the wagon with your smoke addiction. You probably should have came with a warning, so Blu would have realized that snotty mamma jamma mojo doesn't compete against moody mama suffering from lack of smokes! lol!

So are you gonna share more about Blu and how you ended up with her and eventually sold her?

I'm in supnesse to read more about Blu and JP!

Laughing Orca Ranch said...

Oh! And that last photo cracked me up. It looks like Blu is thinking, "Sheesh, I can't wait until JP leaves so I can gte back to business terrorizing Ann again. That mare's got 'Tude. It just oozes from her!

Something a drunk does with their horse with a rope. As in "I ludded' my horse to get it supple and work out the bucks and farts'

LOL...Jocelyn, every time I read your blog I get an education on "new age vocabulary"!!! Sometimes it takes me a while to figure it out...but I get it in the end!!!

I'm glad that the lil' prissy thing got your message...hope Ann can get a couple of brass ones.
