|new cooler- oooh aaahh.....|
Came out and turned Holly out Sunday night... as a spectacular windstorm descended upon us. She was a spook monster, but I really couldn't blame her, so i just made sure she knew not to run me over, and got to watch her explode in the round pen.Went home and proceeded to lose power for several hours... We finally went to bed, the technology withdrawal was too much for us ;)
Tonight was group lesson. Holly was mysteriously missing her back left shoe, then while trotting around, i heard this tinking sound, and caught sight of her half-off shoe flopping around in the mirror. Well I was going to try her barefoot in the back anyways, guess she decided it was time.
It seems our start time has crawled back to about 6pm, meaning by next week it will be pretty dark by the time we start. Which means pretty much guaranteed only indoor riding in all its spooky wonder. I'm learning I am just incredibly slow to react, which means Holly gives me every "hey lady I'm looking at something scary!...Hey lady I'm gonna react!... Hello... lady fiddling around on my back, here we go?!". Yea I'm feeling kinda sucky right now. I just need more saddle time on my lady, I know it will come... hopefully...
L and Karley jumped their boys, then L jumped on Holly and put her over a cross rail then worked up to the line of 2 lattice panels. I got to cool Ramone out while she jumped, he didn't feel that much bigger surprisingly, and he just spent the time flicking his ears back at me while watching his mom ride the pretty new mare who calls to him from down the barn.
Another lesson bright and early tomorrow am.
