I hope to ride Jas tomorrow. Hope the weather and my back can cooperate.
No riding in my neck of the woods Both Stella and Bugs are loading into the trailer so that is a problem I am getting sorted. Todays training session was to close the barrier so Bugs could not back out, that upset him. I ended up in the front with him, calming him down the little sook. He tried to raise his front of the deck but did not have enough room also tried to kick out also not enough room. He ended up stomping his hoof like a spoilt child. That got him a growling, and I sang him a country song as aditional punshment. That quitened him down, I guess he figered the only way to stop me singing was to lower his head and stop stomping his hoof.
The plan for the week is to keep loading and locking him in untill he gets the idea its not a place to be frightened of, and if I have enough energy an evening ride.
Pony gal, the weather and your back have you hurt yourself.
Welcome to the two new over 40 or just reaching 40 can't rightly remember but one was 43 I believe, and what to post. Any thing will do.
Most are aware of my horse Stella the problems I have had and the replacement Bugs, but now, after working with them both I'm not sure if I can move Stella on. She still gives me the cold shoulder but then when she just looks at me and answers my verbal commands it makes one soften. What I need is someone I know to take her so I know she will be looked after. Must be getting soft in my old age.
