Organizing shows and clinics! And getting the pon clipped up as soon as it decides to stay warm (it's supposed to snow later in the week :( ).
And probably cleaning the barn compulsively. Even though I just board there. I compulsively clean everywhere lol.
Also - Yay for clipped horses that barely shed! And heated barns/hot water! I just rinse all the mud off my horse :P
Had dentist and farrier out this week. Shots are next week. I already sent in my entries for a few shows. Both horse and I are getting back into shape and just started jumping again. I'm waiting for a nice warm day to give him a serious bath and get some of the wooly bear hair off. I just spent way too much money on a bunch of stuff for horsey. I'm sure the UPS guy will be hating my guts next week. Yey spring!
1) I have to do the impossible of task of getting a farrier to actually drive up to our house, since it is so far away from town that nobody wants to drive that far.
2) I have to begin conditioning the frisky, winter-fresh horses who think its fun to kick up their heels and buck all the way down the arena because they feel good after a long winter of light riding.
3) I get to go through the tack room and clean saddles, bridles, bits, stirrups, cinches, pads, blankets....flymasks, breast collars, blankets.....halters, reins, martingales.....and everything else under the sun.
4) Washing the trailer. ****. The ancient two-horse is the one we use most often, because, well, no one wants to haul the big four-horse if we don't have to. Our road is really scary with that thing o.o
5) Clean off five inches of fluff and fur from our beloved equine children. Work mud clots out of their manes and tails, and beging putting them on their show feed again. Following that, I must clips their whiskers...and on the paints, make sure their white pops by doing a little clip on the base color.
6) More cardiac work! Getting up really early for long periods of extended trotting, then coming out at noon to do it again, and then.....one final time before I go sleep. -headdesk- This means sitting for a while on the most uncomfortable trot ever.
That's my spring for the next month or so. Thheeennn we get to the fun stuff....
