Yesterday the weather was good and most of the ground was acceptable to do some work on so I decided to start to get the guy working after lounging around all winter just eating and dreaming of mares.
He kinda looked at me when I put the gear on but being the stoic type just stood in the crossties listening to what was going on outside. I couldn't believe that I could not do the girth up to the usual holes and only made it to two holes short of where they normally go.
So out we go to lunge and he started to do his usual caprioles on the line but after 5 turns around he was huffing and puffing. The best I could do in this session was 8 min in total for both sides and he was all done in.
At least until he came back to the barn and saw the pretty filly in the crossties. Oh that untapped energy that always seems to be held in reserve.
Anyways put him back in his stall with a flake of hay and he just sank to the floor and munched on it from there.:roll:
I think I have my work cut out for me this year on the lazy sod.
So anyone else have their work cut out for them?
