I think I have this riding thing all wrong. I managed to load Bugs into the new float after a few rough starts and he going down on his knees. Stupid horse is so uncordinated at times I think he forgets where his feet are which makes us so compatable as I often forget where my shoes are.
Got him loaded and took him for a ride. Now that is where it goes all wrong. I believe from reading the posts of you all, the horse is suposed to take me for a ride, not me take him. Ill reverse that on Monday and put him in a ring as he is getting a little stropy and trying to boss me. Been around Stella to much he has.
Sunday I'll try getting Stella into the float again and take her for a ride, she does not have a problem with the float, its a mare thing she wants to be the boss AGAIN. I have to admit I am getting tired of the mare go round. I need her to load without issue so I can get some work in for the trek next weekend.
I'm still not decided if I want to go through the riggors of training a young horse. Not sure if my body will handle it, I don't bounce any more. Trouble is when in the paddock with Bugs he follows me around and that pulls on the heart strings. I hate horses.
P R, the truck, nice wagon, if that was in NZ I would be moving heaven and hell to get it back on the road.
Time to put dinner on, Pigs hock and roast vege. Roslyn is due home at six and I'm the cook. My life is controlled by one mare or another.
Corgi my thoughts are with you.
