Blake was finally out enjoying the warmth of sunshine for the first time since he moved to Heart Lake, but not without his stallion Judas, mind you. He had perched himself atop the blue roan's broad back, no saddle, only a worn leather headstall over the thick head of the steed. His plain appreciation of his new home was evident as he looked down on the beach of Heart Lake, watching the activity on one side of the beach. There were girls basking in the sun on beach towels, guys playing volleyball in the warm sun, and a few people riding along on their horses in the warm surf. But it seemed like no one was alone, 'cept him of course.
Shifting slightly on Judas' massive back, he gave a gentle squeeze to the horse with his calves, easing him into a signature quarter horse jog, hardly moving as the young stallion swaggered down the grassy hillside. But he wasn't headed to the populous of the main beach, no, he was headed out into the more deserted parts of the lake, he didn't want everyone spooking Judas. He began humming under his breath, along with the easy beat of his steed's hooves, the tune progressing into a well-tuned rendition of Maroon 5's It Makes Me Wonder. When he finished, he asked Judas for a gallop, and they soared forward, Judas thrashing in the surf, Blake enjoying the wind and sun. Slowing his stallion slightly, he guided him onto the sand and reined him into a sliding halt. Hopefully no one was watching, he hated showing off, and never liked being accused of it. Shifting his jean-clad legs slightly, he settled forward and scratched Judas' neck affectionatly. "there, you had your run. Now stop being such a prancing fool." Jest was naturally in his voice. It was obvious the horse and rider shared a connection that many never had with their horses.
