Yesterday was gorgeous. Just GAWG-E-OUS Dahling! It was sunny. It was a balmy 45 degrees. There was hardly a breeze. The ground was finally dried out enough in the arena so Zach could work it up, which he did. So the good news is, I will hopefully have an arena to ride around in, in the next couple weeks. That is assuming we don’t end up getting a foot of snow tomorrow.
This sunny day, led, of course, to my being out, playing cowgirl, once again. I rode Gump down the road. I love him. I don’t care if he’s ever more than a 4D horse (of course I think he’s better than that but that isn’t the point) I just adore him. He is my furry monster. And he’s safe from being sold to anyone that will misunderstand him, or once again abuse him.
Shuttle had the day off.
I rode Dozer for the first time since September. I love him. He’s ready to start on the barrels. He is not built as your stereotypical barrel horse, but it doesn’t matter. As long as I’m around riding horses, they will all learn to go around the barrels!
Lucy had her first real ride. I wasn’t brave enough to do it, which leads me to another point. Somewhere, somehow, my confidence has been shot. Lacee told me this morning to grow *a pair* so that’s what I will do. I am going to see about riding her myself today. She was so good! she was soft in the face and really thought through everything Zach asked her to do. The thing that I have to tell myself, is that people start colts all the time that are broncs, and often those people starting said bronc aren’t half the hand that I am. I need to have confidence in my ability. Plain and simple.
I’m going to get to ride today and then the rest of the week is supposed to be less than favorable so maybe it will give me a chance to clean my house and catch up on laundry.
Have a happy Wednesday folks. I’m off to ride some horses.
* I will introduce Camo shortly.
