worst day...

Ok, I just have to rant lol

Well today we were getting the horses ready for the PC gymkhana tomorrow and it didn't go so well...

Everyting was ok until I got to the plaiting

My mare would NOT stand still... so I tied her up tighter. That worked but then she kept swinging her head around and stomping her feet at the flies. I just ignored her for a while and attempted to keep plaiting. Not an easy task when she'd yank her head away regularly to bite at flies. And it didn't help that she put her nose down to the ground whenever you picked up some mane to plait

So anyway, I just kept trying to plait until she stomped out her front foot to itch it with her teeth. The bad thing about this was, her hoof stomped right down on my foot. I yelled out in pain and shoved her off. I suceeded in getting her off my foot but also totally freaked her out, making her pull back and break her halter

Anyway, to cut a long story short, I did get her plaits done after almost an hour an a half but they are the worst plaits I've ever seen. I'm embarassed for people to see them at PC tomorrow... hopefully I'll get time in the morning to redo them. But to do that, I'll have to get up before the flies do. ARRGGGHHH

Ok, that's all I wanted to say! Lol sorry about all the complaining

That sux, last weekend my plaits looked terrible too, it was pooring with rain so I decided to do it in the steel car port which my horse is terrified of so he was messing about heaps and because we didn't have much time I decided to only do 7 plaits which just wasn't quite enough, he kept trying to escape and by the end we were both rather wet and the plaits were terrible, don't worry about it, we all have bad days.
