the importance of being awake

This morning, I got up, rolled out of bed and out to the pasture for my morning ride. I took the lead line and marched (okay toddled) up to Mr. Vacation. I snapped the lead line on to his halter, turned around and went back to the door. Mr. Vacation walked nicely at my shoulder head in perfect position. I thought the lead line feels weird. I reached the door and looked behind me to check where the mare that shares that pasture was. I noticed that Mr. Vacation was still standing nicely next to me, having stopped when I stopped. The clip on the lead line was in the dirt having been dragged along. I apparently did not attach the lead to his halter, I had just fiddled it around under his chin. Mr. Vacation looked at me like "its okay, I will be good today. You are clearly not on your best game today". Its nice that he is hooking on and following and I appreciate having a horse that's not out to take advantage of me.

LOL, love it! Isn't it funny what a half asleep mind can do?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I bet Mr Vacation thought it was a test and he most definitely PASSED!

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up!".
