I haven't posted much last week for no reason. But I have done some pony stuff. I rode Razz on Wednesday and Saturday. Also on Saturday I brushed Disco and brought her in the barn, which she knew exactly what was going on there cause she just walked right into the stall and over to the feed dish, lol. She stayed in the stall while I rode Razz and only called out a couple times. I am thinking I won't be riding her till after Tuesday when she is getting her teeth done. I am excited and yet nervous as well.
Duchess has been making her way into the herd here at home. I felt a little sorry for her when I turned her out with everyone cause they were all about protecting the baby, but she is very much an alpha mare and she had no problems getting in the middle of the herd and I expect before too long she will be ruling it.
I had to get after her the other day when she kicked out at another horse when I was out there and I yelled at her. She run away about 5 steps and looked back at me like she couldn't believe someone was yelling at her. I said I was sorry and I know she has never been chased away for doing that before, but I don't want to get hurt out there even though I know she wouldn't hurt me on purpose I want to avoid any opportunities.
I am really torn on weather to put a blanket on Razz. I would like one on her so hopefully she will not sweat as much when I ride her, but it is a lot easier for me to not have one on her. I am not gonna put one on for sure until I know if I am gonna ride Disco all winter. Cause if I ride Disco I may turn Razz out for the rest of winter. I bought one the other day I will use to start out with if I do blanket her. it is a rain sheet with a polar fleece liner. i think it will work really well as just keeping her a warmer out of the wind before it gets really cold and she needs a real winter blanket.
