Saturday it was cold and kinda rainy but we went riding anyways, we rode indoors and it was fun. The barn was really busy which was surprising cause it was cold out. We rode for quite a while and it was a lot of fun. I was planning on going to the show this weekend so I figured I better ride lots.
Sunday was Neil's birthday so we had his parents and sister come out and had dinner and cake and presents. It was good, even if I wasn't looking forward to a day of missing riding. But the weather was really cold and we actually had a little snow on the ground, brrr.
(mm chocolate cake with chocolate icing and chocolate sprinkles)Then yesterday my farrier come out and trimmed 6 horses, Bailey, Belle, Disco, George, Kali, and Razz. I went out early in and Magic was good, but I don't think she or I was ready for her to get trimmed yet. So I caught the pasture horses (George, Bailey and Kali) I have to take them one at a time cause its a wire gate that is really wide and I cant control it with too many horses. If I could catch George first I can lead Bailey and Kali together but otherwise Kals leads awful with other horses. And George doesn't like to be caught so I usually leave him last and then he wants to go cause his friends are all gone. He was good and I tied them up by the chute.
Then the others, I had them in the corral and caught Disco, then Razz, then Jazz. I was a little worried Jazz was not gonna let me put the halter on her, but she was really good and led across the corral well and I tied her near Razz then caught Belle and put her on the other side of Jazz. I was way early cause everyone was so good. It was only about 8:30 and Jason was not coming till 10, but he is usually a little early so I was planning on being ready by 9 anyways cause they are usually a little better after standing tied for a while anyways.
Since I had so much time, I grabbed a flower shedder and went out and brushed them all. That took a while and most are shedding quite good, except Bailey is not started shedding at all. Disco and Belle are almost all shed out and the others are shedding like crazy. I love brushing Kali cause she loves it soo much and makes it so obvious. Even Jazz was really good, she also loves brushing and I love to brush her.
I was tired and thirsty so I left them out there and went in for a drink and Jason showed up right on time and we did Kals first and after that I decided I better untie Jazz cause she had gotten her rope really long and has never tried pulling back and I don't want her to. She was really good to stand for that long and wasn't getting done anyways, so it was good. After I untied her she stood at the fence for along time like she was still tied, it was funny. I never got a pic of it, but her butt is the same height as Razz's right now, but her withers not as tall yet, I am thinking she is gonna grow taller than Razz.
(I got Neil to hold his horse so I could go to the bathroom and quickly snapped a pic,
even getting the UFA guy in it)Everyone got done and the UFA truck came and delivered fuel, then I put everyone back and went to have lunch then hooked up my trailer and went riding. I was already tired but figured I still needed to ride. Although after riding I decided not to enter the show cause I am too busy and Jessie is out of shape and I haven't practiced in a long time, so if its nice out we will ride out. Jessie also needs her feet done and I am gonna put front shoes on her and that is probly gonna happen Friday if all goes well.
