Wordless (movie time) Wednesday - Horsie Agilities

Hey! Wanna see some exciting photos from my date with Tula and Nordork? Click here.

Mango Man! Oh yeah!

P.S. Master has been doing the home improvements for about 87 years now, but always open to learning new things. To whit, I give you two most important tool time tips that he has learned whilst working on our downstairs wet room (DIY humans get out your pens)

  1. Never solder overhead without wearing a hat.
  2. Never glue overhead with your mouth open.
I think you get the picture. Hehehe.

Horse Agility Too Funny! Looked like the horse was having a blast!

Thanks for the DIY tips. A bit late ;) but still appreciated.

Waggin at ya,

Niamh said...

That person has to run fast to do agility with the horse. We liked all that big agility equipment. It looks Mango sized to us.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

monica said...

couldn't see the video ( am at work, closed for You Tube) but I have taken note of the tips. WOAHAHAHA!!! I sure do get the picture :)

The Thundering Herd said...

Excellent home improvement tips. I am sure he got great sympathy as he learned those details.

Molly,Taffy and Monty said...

The horse agilities were excellent, we have never seen a horse do that before.

We do hope Master isn't suffering too many headaches but with his mouth glued together don't suppose he can tell you if he is. Poor chap.

You got snow yet Mango?

i liked the agility video, i mistook that horse for you, Mango. Glad you liked Groucho's picture--we laugh everytime we see him too. especially that one, he looks so extra pleased.

giantspeckledchihuahua said...

The horse agility is quite something!

I dunno, Mango...I might have kept the super glue/mouth closed tip to myself. One less babbling bean, in the world, can't be a bad thing.

Marjie said...

My brother Dan is an actual constructions dude. I shall pass on your very important tool time tips.

And now I want a horsie to play agilities with.


Gus said...

Muzzer is thinking of making a sampler with the Master's tool time tips on it.

Does he know "never unscrew the pipe connector while you are still under the sink?"


Hound Girl said...

Ohhh coool. Fred needs a horse for a pet! heheh.

BRUTUS said...

Those Scandinavians obviously have too much time on their hands! Either that or not enough doggies!!

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

We didn't know there was horsie agility!!

That mental picture of the home improvements is hysterical!!! Thanks for hsaring!

Woofs and Kisses!

Corbin said...

That was an awesome video!!! I wonder if he got points off for the little buck of excitement! hehehe

That horse deserves a carrot or two.

And so does your master for sharing those excellent tips!

(BTW Mango, the barking dogs have been silenced... for now. I'm thinking of compiling a collection of the most annoying holiday tunes ever, but there are just so many choices!)

Martha and Bailey said...

What an absolutely beautiful horse!
We loved the video and the xmas music - it is hard work keeping these humans fit.
We have a Dad in this house who is always doing DIY so we will pass your tips on!
We particularly liked the image of the glue and the open mouth.
We have found that the DIY's don't much care for the rest of us laughing but sometimes it is too much - our own Dad once tried to move a radiator without turning the water off and was stuck with his finger in the little hole trying to stem the water flow!
Apparently our mum couldn't move for laughing.........he was not amused!
Thank you for your good thoughts for Bailey we are all very relieved over here that she is on the mend - we were very lucky.
Much love
Martha and Bailey xx

Martha and Bailey said...

Mango, turns out the xmas music is coming from Marvins blog and not yours.
We had just visited Marvin and then come to you and clearly hadn't closed off Marvins which is belting out All I want for Xmas is You - seemed unusual for a horse video but cheery enough!

Dennis the Vizsla said...

In fact, just avoid working overhead ever.

Minna Krebs said...

Mango Man
That horse is almost as agile as your RH Self when doing agilities! You still have him beat, though.

And, thanks fur the tips! I think I can now see why it is taking 87 years to complete the home improvement project! Heeehehehehe

PeeEssWoo: So how hard did The DOH laugh?

♥♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥♥ said...

Too bad about the DIY lessons learned - does Dad have some hot spots on top now?

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Kristine said...

That video is too awesome! I am going to email it to my agility trainer. Thanks for sharing it Mango!

And I'm sorry about your DIY teachable moments. I learned that about glue the hard way as well. Yuck.

Samantha said...

Dat horse has some amazing agility skills! I will let's my dad know abouts da DIY tips, but I thinks he learned #1 a while ago! No wonder my mom calls him Tim when he is doin' home improvement projects, hehehehe...

Woofs and Licks,
Maggie Mae

Carol from Down Under said...

Hi Mango, heaps cool horse agility. About the renovation tips, that's why we don't even try. If an expert gets it wrong what hope for us mere mortals. No worries, Carol.

brooke said...

Horse agilities! I love the giant tunnel!

Clive said...

Enjoyed that horse agility video - Murray was very impressed - hope he doesn't expect poor Ranger to do anything like that at his next riding lesson!

Loved the DIY tips - Murray's Dad here can't even change a light bulb so he manages to avoid all DIY jobs!

take care
Clive and Murray

Honey the Great Dane said...

Ooh - we loved the horseagility video!! Hsin-Yi says it kinda reminds her of me when I'm getting all 'BOING! BOING! - especially the bit where the horse was bucking in happiness! :-)

Gosh - if I had equipment that size, I could have done agility easily too! But that poor human must be a good runner to do an agility course with a horsie!!! :-)

Honey the Great Dane

HoundDogMom said...

We will keep that second tip in mind for sure. Them is some very talented horsies. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

houndstooth said...

Mom used to have horses when she was younger. She said that video is pretty darned impressive!

I really wish you had photos to go with those two things you've learned!


Mack said...

That horse is talented, but he ain't got nuttin on you and PeeWee!

Ms. ~K said...

Pretty cool horsey there...aren't you glad you don't have to share your backyard w/ that?!?
Licks and sniffs,
Zack, Sassy and Buddy

Levi Mac said...

Thanks for the tips. Mom and Dad have been sending me to daycare when they do any major projects so I miss all the fun!

Lorenza said...

Horsie Agilities!!
If a horsie can do it... so I can too!
Hmmm.... Naaaah!
Good advices on DIY!
I guess my mom could write a book about it!
Kisses and hugs

KB said...

Love the home improvement advice!

I saw a photo of your date with Norwood over at his blog. He really rolled over and worshiped you!

PS I didn't even know that horses did agility!

I like when the horse would buck and get sassy during his agilities. I think you should try that too. I also like some of his trainer's outfits :)
