Click video to watch 1:31 video of barn chaos at breakfast!
Scene: Breakfast feedtime at the barn with my herd of 4. My strongly reinforced cue for the horses to get in their places for feeding is sweeping.
Today, however, after about 5 minutes of sweeping...still no one was in their place to get fed!
Karen: Good morning guys! Did everyone have a great night??
Koda: I had a incredible night, just peachy perfect.
Rhett: Seriously Squirt??? What a suckup you are!
Karen: Why is no one is in their place for breakfast and I am sweeping for the 3rd time?
Rhett: Why is the old redheaded 'bag o'wind' standing in front of feed room preventing you from delivering my breakfast?
Karen: Age and Beauty before awesome Rhett.
Rhett: Awwww, well then you must be talking about me because I am beauty and awesome. She's only old!
Karen: For the 1000th time Rhett, her name is Sage.
Sage: I don't want my name on his lips. He can refer to me as 'The Queen'.Rhett: Hahaha, that will never happen! You my dear, are no queen!
Karen: (clears throat) Rhett....why aren't you on your mat? You are the one that moves everyone to their place so you can be fed first. What's going on Rhett, why is everything running amok?
Rhett: First, the redhead stands blocking me from getting fed first like I always do.
Rhett: Then that young punk comes hippity hoppy over and blocks the feedroom door, threatening to load himself on up in there so he gets fed next !!!
Karen: Rhett, you drove Koda and I to his stall. It's on the video!
Rhett: (who has now positioned himself on his mat) I was trying to hurry you up. I'm starving, can't you see how weak and gaunt I am?
Karen: Rhett, there is nothing that resembles gaunt in your body...nothing, not one thing.
Rhett: Whose fault is that? Who feeds me?? Who adores me with cookies??
Karen: Ok, ok Rhett. Thank you for getting on your mat and waiting to be fed breakfast..even if it was third of four.
Rhett: I can assure you that will never happen again.
Karen: Excuse me? What will never happen again Rhett?
Rhett: Me get fed third...or even second. I will be fed first.
Karen: Haha, I'm sure you will Rhett. Play nice.
Rhett: Oh I do, I always do [said with a mischievous laugh].
