    It just keeps on raining. I shouldn't complain because the grass is sure green.

    Funny how when he decides its alright the big things waving around don't scare him. He found the hay
    Bugs. Now is that not the face of innocence.

    Just a quick update as I am bushed!!! Lol

    Day 1 of the clinic went really well. Earl was a blessing, he needed a tune up, yet gave me confidence....PLUS. He is a beauty, so,everyone liked him too! 😋

    Tomorrow my mom will join me as she hasn't handled horses in years! Gotta love the woman, 69 yo and willing to try just about anything I throw aT her! She wants to feel more confident around the horses, and wants to ride if we get a second one. 😄

    Amazing the change in the horse just over the day. By the end I was able to walk away and have the big guy follow me without the lead....I became the leader! 😉

    Quick question all....when we trot, I am allowed to post, I wouldn't be able to sit his trot, it would hurt too much.....but I forget, do I post up with the outside or inside shoulder?

    Koolio, I spent the last 13 years in 4,5, and 6 grade, so if you need any ideas I would be willing to help....I know a really great book....hahaha (I wrote it!) that might give you ideas! It's based on brain research.. Anyway, I love the middle aged kids....yes they are silly and at times hormonal(ugh the sixth grade) but they really need a strong support system. They make me laugh, and I love when I see them in the hall and they make the effort to come over and give me a high five.....I know then I made a difference! 😃😃😃

    Wish me luck tomorrow....time for bed! Hahaha. I didn't sleep good last night (too excited). So I am REALLY tired tonight. Want to get the most out of tomorrow.....wish I had a professional at my disposal ALL the time!!!😉

    Happy trails all! Ride strong! 🐴

    I just came in from grooming hairy bumble #1 (Koolio) and hairy bumble #2 (Sam). Both are greys, so it now looks like it snowed in my pasture, and I am still trying to clear the flyaway hairs from my nose, mouth, ears, etc. Gotta love spring!

    Now I am on my way to Ikea to pick up towel bars to use as blanket hangers in the new barn. And maybe a new dressage bridle if the tack shop has the one I want...
    So Glad I clipped

    So the clinic was so much fun, we brought out BO's horses but only one was really ok to use. They said it takes time to desensitize them to the sounds and sights. But what fun!!! It was 24 degrees here today (68 farenheit for you in the USA) I am flambayed, sauteed, fried, baked you name it. Oh and of course I couldn't come away without a bruise. We so need to get some bows and arrows for the barn. The bruise is the inside of my arm, when I would do the backwards shot the string on the bow kept hitting me, I am such a peach.

    Its raining cats and dogs so I thought i'd add the horses, and talking about how far away we are from them this is my back yard I took these while sitting in my ole rocking chair (got to be a country song in there some where) and if you are wondering what the little wooden building in the back ground is, its the guest quarters. I call it the dog box. I have spent meany a long weekend out there so have decked it out quite nicely.

    Your mother at 69 that's the new 59. Now would that mean you may not qualify for the 40 +. Im 65 well almost, that is the new 55. And if it wasn't for my lack of hair, the grey, gravity effected skin, I could at a push be taken for 54. And I don't bounce when falling off.

    NickerMaker - I am glad you are enjoying your clinic. As for posting, you rise when the horses outside front leg goes forward. The saying is something like "rise and fall on the outside wall". Have a great day again tomorrow.

    Hunter - your clinic looks like a lot of fun. My daughter is an archer and has been talking about doing horseback archery for quite some time.

    Stan - it is so beautiful in your backyard. I am jealous of the greenery. Glad you are getting some rain. Will it be enough to recover from your recent drought?
