Why did I get back into horses?????

Because they bring the smile to my face that I so desperately need at times! 😄 Right before leaving for Easter vacation Thursday night, I was called into the principals office for something REALLY stupid, but it made so furious....I was still walking around yesterday twisted up😡. Last night I headed over to do chores, and when I pulled up Rainn poked her head out of the wind shed. I instantly smiled and chucked.😆she is so dang cute! Once I got out of the car, I heard Skye nicker at me.....WHY didn't I got over sooner? 😕That was all I needed to remind me what is important in life.....and why I got the horses, to force me step away from my job and the stupid people I work with! 🙊

Thank goodness for my girls! I feel so much better now! 🐴😜

Put some cinder block up in the front yard and stuck round fence post through them for 2 step ups and 3 fence posts on the ground. Took Trusty and Little Man over them for about 20 minutes to get them to picking their feet up before saddling them up for a little 1/4 mile ride around the neighborhood last night.

They did good for the most part. I need to work on keeping Trusty inbetween the reins as he wanted to walk back and forth across the dirt road checking out what was over there. Neither spooked or paid much attention at the barking dogs along the path we took. I am feeling pretty good about the future with those 2 and hope to get one more going by summer for a threesome ride.

Horses are the best medicine! My family refers to my gelding as Dr. Koolio for that very good reason. I also work in education (high school teacher), so I know how stressful (and rewarding) working in a school can be. The horses always seem to be able to turn a bad day around.

Dressage clinic today!!! The trailer is packed, hooked up, and ready to load and go. I haven't done a clinic or lessons in over a year, so I am very much looking forward to some instruction and feedback. Tomorrow is jumping, which I haven't done in about 20 years and Sunday may be either dressage again, or jumping, depending upon how sore I am. I hope all goes well and I don't make a fool of myself. This should be a fun weekend!

Bre and I went for a little Trial ,field , Road ride yesterday. It was so nice out. I was actually warm in my sweater.
Both horses did great. We only had one close call. A dog ran towards us while we were along side a corn field. There was a fence between us and the dog. It happened pretty fast Doc froze. Bre said "DOG" and then Cody saw him and spooked and was about to high tail it outta there Doc was about to follow. I did a one Rein stop and got his feet moving in a circle. Calmed him down and we moved on. Here are a couple pics.
Cody looks so Brown I am so not happy about this he loves to stand in the sun and is fading so bad. I added the hat for fun LOL


I just love how long his tail is I wish his mane would grow.

Stay off the donuts Cacowgirl. We all know what they do, give us energy, are a comfort food, a reason to take a break, add inches to the thighs, the front and rear, but give us energy, are a comfort food, a reason to take a break, and they tast great. The nearest backery is 28 miles from my place. I blame you Cacowgirl for bringing up the subject and adding more cost to my budget. Not to mention the waist line. Off now to get a donut or three.
