Nicer weather = Busy weekend!
I finally got all the manure in my poop cart transferred from the barn to the poop pile. The skidoo and the calf sled worked great for this job! Saturday I rode Koolio and had a great ride. We are working on getting him to move off his hindquarters more and soften and lift into a more rhythmic movement. Just by lightening my seat, he was a completely different horse; athletic, animated and happy. I am so proud of the progress we have been making lately. After riding, DD, DH and I went for a long cross country ski through the fields. The snow is about 2' deep so in places it was tough slogging, but we had a great time and the exercise and fresh air felt good. Saturday evening was off to a friends house for dinner and to see their slide show from a motorcycle trip to New Zealand. Now I am dreaming of faraway places... Hey Stan, are there any good motorcycle roads in your neck of the woods?
Today was a work day and started off with a 4 hour planning session with another teacher. This afternoon, DH and I got our son out for a cross country ski. He wasn't impressed at first, but I think he had some fun and got some exercise. After that, it's laundry, cook dinner, outdoor chores and back to work to prep for the week. I am teaching a grade 12 Biology review class to help students prepare for their departmental exams next weekend so I have to get myself caught up and a little ahead of schedule. It is going to be a little nuts for the next 10 days and I am doing everything I can to make sure I get at least a couple of rides in on Koolio.
I hope everyone has a fantastic week!!
