Big disappointment(s)!

I tried to return Peanut this weekend after she embarrassed me by not running in the "Blur of Fur" event at the farm. We had practiced so hard and I was sure she was going to do well. Even Limo disappointed me! :-o Actually I don't blame them, there were too many distractions and the "lure" was a lunge whip with a dead fur something tied to the end of it- from like 50 yards someone waved it back and forth.... I let go of the Nut and she stood there, so I ran up ahead of her and turned around to see her taking a pee break- niiiice. Limo wouldn't run either, she ran straight to the crowd, there were just too many distractions for her little self.
Peanut didn't win softest fur either :-/, John and Laura's greyhound, Icy won it so I think the whole thing was rigged...
We totally missed our "Find your Grey's Twin" competition too:-( We were going to pair up with Kadabra (Abby), our last foster...














So can any of you tell who is Peanut and which is Kadabra (Abby)? Sometimes I have to look at the date of the pics to figure it out if it's like some of these poses...

But I was swapping horses around and we missed the Twin thing- Sorry Dawn!
Frosty who is normally in the back pasture was not a happy camper with all the going ons- There were so many dogs, tents, and just so much activity for GreyFest. Frosty was running herself silly, I tried to go out and catch her and she just kept whizzing by me like I wasn't there. So we had to go get Lester and Polo and use them as "Frosty bait"- which worked. We left Less and Polo in the back pasture and I took Frosty to the pasture across from the house away from all the commotion. Well technically she dragged me all the way up there. So while my two dogs were big disappoints for the day Lester shined as usual being the well rounded pony he is:-) He LOVES crowds and commotion, he thinks it's all about him. He and Polo grazed and took in the sights all day and weren't spooked by any of it. Frosty was relieved to be out of there.

Of course Lester didn't mind, he is a bit of a ham! :)
Sorry to hear your doggies didn't perform though.

Abby left, Peanut right! Am I right? Denise, you deserve first place for having well exercised dogs.... Those Blur of Fur dogs are probably just starved for a good run.

Limo's DNA kit arrived today!!!

jen- yay I can't wait to get the kit! I'm not going to reveal who is who yet, and there are 2 each, you didn't guess the ones above them.

OK, my final answer is Peanut is top and right. Abby is 2nd pic and left.

I'm glad Gemini wasn't the only one that peed during the Blur of Fur - I've now renamed him to Whizzer!

Sorry the dogs didn't perform as expected. Still a good experience for them to place under the furry belts.
Way to go Lester! I enjoy seeing pics of that handsome guy. What a silly horse Frosty was, though.

Is that you in that pic with Lester?? You have such a sweet smile :)

Ahhhh, dang - sorry your doggies didn't run!

I just love hear about Lester! He does seem like a ham - like my Stretch, its almost sad the lengths that he goes to - to be the center of attention.

Jen you are correct, BUT you've seen them both up close and personal so you don't count... just kidding. Peanut is just a bit thicker in places.

laughing orca- yep that's me:-) and thanks!

steph- I just love when my TB can outshine a QH in the mellow department:-) LOL
