FANTASTIC ride this morning!!! Spur of the moment thing. Haven't ridden in a few bc my back and seats bones have been hurting. The ride did my back good, and a little yoga afterwards helped too. Those dang side bends with the water buckets are giving me the issue!
every time I try something new....my body fights back...
Anyway, Jay was a peach. We worked on slow jogging and some collected cantering ( I said screw the back...I'm having fun
). His cowboy canter was pretty easy to slow down so I could sit deep and comfortable in my saddle. He really seemed to enjoy the work out....in fact, he appeared more content on the remainer of the ride and a super trail horse. He would look, sniff, and step over. Almost acting as if we was being very diligent to take care of me thru the woods!
. He's always good, but he was just 'better' today.
It was really wonderful!! In addition, once back at the barn he was a bit more curious and attentive....not totally focused on his hay, but on what I was doing. Cool!
So far my back is feeling pretty good. Ibuprofen helps!!
Got another mothers DH story (MDH)...... So apparently he thot we were best buds since we shared the chores while my mom was out west.....he invited my DH and I last night to the fair for dinner..(actually he asked me all week to go....) I said we had talked about going Friday, but would let them know as I was whooped from this weeks events.....we didn't go, so last night and today....I got the SILENT TREATMENT
this dude is early sixties and is giving me the silent treatment.....grow up!
It only gets better......today my mom wanted to put her older goats in with her buck to start the breeding process. I look out and see the babies out and her older ones in the little pen....hmm....I said, "why didn't you just leave the babies in like you had them? It would make the transition seamless" I must note that prior to this everyone was in the appropriate spots so she could have easily just opened the gate for the older ones to go in with the buck....now it's all messed up....she just gave me a look
so I walked away.
HE comes back to my part of the barn and says....and I quote....".I'm so glad I don't think like her, I don't know what she is doing. Geez, she thinks illogically." (Tis is as she is rearranging the goats for the move....instead of helping...)
At this point I'm thinking the same thing, but of course say nothing....all turns out OK......BUT, she calls me later to tell me that HE is the one who switched the goats into the wrong pens!!!!! Yet to me, behind her back, he was blaming her!!!!! For the mixing of the goats.
I hope I explained that clearly...but bottom line, he screwed up big time and put the blame onHER! Does he not think we would talk? But see he had to make her look bad bc I caught the mistake.....just another example of what a jerk he is!!!!! Ugh!
I am enjoying the silent treatment tho! Took my chair and iPad out into the pasture to read the Tao of Equus
. So far, VERY good!! Rainn always comes out and hangs with me when I do that!
Great pics of the horses aNd work Roaddy!
Celeste, feel better?
