How can you so boldly anounce you have had rain, when I am still running around in my grass skirt doing the rain dance to an indian beat, running bear. Well almost bear, the grass skirt does cover some thing.
Today a power pole in the front paddock was replaced, the hole was two metres deep and the ground bone dry. That is a worry the water table is now so low it will take months of rain to bring it back up again for next summer, which is only 8 months away. We are now into autum and the temp is still in the 20 to 23 degrees but cooler in the evening and mornings.
I've decided to take Bugs on the trek trouble is he got to excited on the last one and I had to pull out. This time because we have not had enough miles together I have decided I will hold him back for 30 minutes after thay have left, then start riding him. With a little luck he will have forgotten the other horses as they will be out of sight, but he will be able to smell them.
If all goes acording to plan I will turn him around and walk back to the start and head him in the direction of meeting them when they are coming in. Those horse will have settled and he will have 30 minutes with them walking in. That will give me a couple of hours on him and he some experience with new horses without every one getting upset.
What say you all, sound like a plan.
Corgi thinking of you. A fish dinner is in order don't you think.
CW take the shift easy and stay connected with us
Hunter stay with the horse, changing is very hard on the nerves and emotions. One day its bugs, then Stella will do something to make me take notice and change my mind. Its a mind field
I really will be in trouble if Stella starts following me around like Bugs does.
Take care all and get out there and ride.
