I love watching horses roll. Some look so awkward when they do it, but some can roll rather athletically. Chico is an athletic roller. He rolls from one side to another with ease and the ground just seems to cradle him while he's down there. This series of photos is from our ride the day before.
Here he's trying to itch his belly on the ground a bit before commencing a full roll.
Check out his teeth sticking out while he shakes! I laughed aloud at this picture because I didn't see it while I was taking it!
Then he notices me watching and comes right over to see if I have anything for him.
All I had was a pat and a hand to straighten out his fly mask.
