And then I grab Pally and pony her out. I have ponied her in the arena before and shes obviously done it before she just walks up beside me and no big deal. They are totally different, Easy is calm and relaxed in the yard and Pally doesn't like walking by stuff but out in the open Easy gets tense and Pally just relaxes. Kinda works well actually.
We walked out about a 1/4 mile and back, not very far but every time I go a little farther and soon we wont even have to worry about it. Hes been good so far, I just don't like the head up and stiff as a board feeling when I'm out there alone.
Then yesterday I went for a lesson, loaded both Pally and Easy and it worked well, Pally stood good at he trailer, called a couple times but not bad and had a fantastic lesson. We worked 4 cows, 2 super slow hardly moving cows and 2 medium cows. Yay I didn't forget everything I learned :) As good as he was we totally coulda shown today. Oh well there is more shows.
(hes so fun :) )
(dunno why its so dark,
but they get to graze the arena after a ride,
works good for all of us)
Oh and I dunno if anyone looks at the side bars but we got our branding date picked out and a few of the neighbors, got about 6 more to add to the list but so far looks like the first week of June is gonna be super busy, I'm still hoping the 11th doesn't get booked as there is a show that day too, Id go if we aren't branding but who knows so far. I'm gonna try and go for a lesson a week and see how that goes too. Also the people who were hosting the cowboy challenge last year are doing roping lessons so I might try do some of that, maybe with Razz she should be fun.
