Well....I survived the first day of Third grade!!! And I'm still awake at 9:30!
I have 23 kids. A couple squirrelly ones...but they'll come around to my wAy of thinking soon.
Gosh, third grade is such a huge transition. We have to learn to walk to the restroom And use it 'in mass', we had to talk about walking down the steps one at a time....we had a birthday, a bee sting, and a ball of a time. There is just so much to learn about being a 8 year old human! Hahaha
Went to the barn after...didn't think I'd stay long I was pooped! But once I saw my two, I was filled with energy.
. I played with Jay. Did several ground work things. He seems to have missed me this morning. I had to change my clothes out in their lean too. Both horses kept doing 'drive bys' seeing what in the heck I was doing.
then I went out to sit on the giant spool to out my socks and boots on....Jay followed me and just stood real close.....turn her head to see what I was doing, I pet his neck, he'd close his eyes....finally he walked behind me, put his muzzle on my neck and blew out warm air....and walked away!thats the second time he's done that...I wonder what it means.
Great pictures Roaddy!! That little grandson with the Binky is so cute!!
TJ, I have to say, that is the first time I read your story...I've always wondered, but didn't want to ask. Wow!!THAT is quite an accident! I bet breaking you pelvis layed you up for quite some time!! Did it heal back normally? Really, no bones do....you always know it's there. I feel your pain.
Becka, hope your posting went well. I used to place my English saddle on the saddle rack and practice like that! You don't have the horses umph to help you get up,there, but it strenghtens your thighs. I was always taught to post using your legs, not stirrups....the goal to post wo stirrups...which is REALLY hard!!
Well, need to get some shut eye...lots to learn tomorrow. Good luck Koolio! Hope you keep that excitement....and thanks for all the well wishes!
Oh, here's a pic from tonight. This is my beer can bag...a toture device
no really we dragged it and made him carry the Clangy things around. Loud things don't seem to faze him.
