I'm Sorry Tango...Really I Am

>> Wednesday, January 6, 2010

You know how sometimes suspects are coerced into confessions by over zealous detectives. Well that's what happened to Tango pony and it's all my fault.

I assumed he took Tantra out for a little jaunt on Christmas day because of the way the iron gate was plowed over and flat on the ground. That's something that Tango would do. I found out differently today. Why? Because I got a phone call from the barn. That call made me realize that I shouldn't always jump to conclusions about my boy.

"Jan," Becky said, "You're never going to believe this."

Becky's the barn manager.

"What, Becky, tell me what!" I implored (assuming that Tango was in trouble again).

"Well," said Becky. "I had just taken in the next to last mare from the mare field and I heard a huge commotion behind me."

"And?" I asked

"Tantra just couldn't wait. She kicked and shoved and knocked that iron gate flat on the ground. Then she and Cypris walked right over the iron bars!"

Before I could even ask about the loose horses I had to say the obvious...."Yay!" I chirped gleefully into the phone. Then that means that Tango pony didn't let plow over the gate on was Tantra all the time!"

Becky agreed. "That's why I called you," she said. She went on to say that it took a bit to round up Tango's rowdy girlfriend. In the end Tantra took herself to her stall in the barn.

I was grinning from ear to ear. Then I remembered Tango's confession on our last post. Poor boy. He must have been exhausted by the persistent chatter coming from me on Christmas. I suppose he decided to bite the bullet and give me what I wanted......


I'm sorry Tango. From now on I'll get my facts straight before I accuse you of anything.

Here is a true fact. Tango likes to get in the backseat of my jeep to get his own apples. I don't stop him. I am a moron because he might just take the door off someday!

What a bunch of characters you own, it must be great to be able to write with the material you can use.

Poor Tango. Oh well... he probably got away with something else, so it all balances out! LOL He and Nekoda would certainly make quite a pair!

Tango was just so exhaughsted- he did not know what he was agreeing to.
But yeaaaaaaa- Tango is not guilty!
Better look out- that Tango might decide to drive the jeep!

Well, lesson learned for momma. I've been guilty of accusing one dog of piddling my house when later I found out differently. Poor things.

Oh that poor dear boy. He better get some extra apples.

Wow, did anyone know Tantra was that strong? That sure puts a different light on things.

Isn't there a song, Don't jump to conclusions...from back in my Mickey Mouse Club Days.

Glad the barn folks got to the bottom of things though. Wonder about the other times? Looks like the her gate is the one that needs the lock etc.

Poor Tango!!! I guess we make mistakes sometimes and blame the poor things. The owrst part is that they cannot argue!
