Cleaned the pens early this morning (got to SkyView @ 0730). Went faster this time,not so hot,& a good wind blowing. No lesson,as Janice busy w/her summer camp kids,but will get on Addie next Monday after poo-duties. Horses starting to recognize me (Addie does already, of course; got my hands licked up); a mare that ignored me last week sniffed me up good,neck & shoulders,today,so guess got approved of. A paint gelding decided I was the bees knees after scratching his nose, but put a stop to his offer of mutual (too much love,guy,don't know you well enough!) Only one Janice has told me to watch out for is little BlackBeauty;she's only 2 y/o. I went into her pen, & startled her abit, as she was in her stall munching breakfast. I backed up, then came around & called her (from now on,if don't see her,will announce myself). She was ok,kept munching. Cleaned her pen,but there was doo in her stall..so,"clucked" her out,petted her,& moved into the stall. She busied herself @ the water tank,I got the job done,& she went back in. (The other horses that were in stalls eating, I didn't worry about. They didn't care if I cleaned around & under them..but I keep an eye on back feet anyway!)
So, that was my morning. Back home to get my life ready for work tomorrow (which is being screwy & stressful; a guy who's been there 1 yr less than me has been promoted to Training Officer. He's always wanted my shift,is on my butt,& his head would fit no hat made...He's wanted to shove me out for a long time, because I'm...over 30. There it is. It &ucks.)
As for being considerably over 30,I still don't want to go to the over50 thing here. I like you guys.
