Well it was a day off, so I soaked his copra & went for run with the dogs to see if I get a glimse of sexy farmer guy...no such luck but Chip managed to lock onto a hare so I jumped a spar in honor of him Go Chippie! Remember I am on foot hehe Tally Ho
So when I get back up to the shed, I make up Mel's feed put it in the lunging paddock. Everyone is waiting at the gate our property is mainly fenced with tape & our gates are taped.
There is Tahi a lovely appy mare that my friend Lisa owns, Teo the gisbornebred(a kiwi special a bit of arab chunky mix hehe) owned by the farrier, Lynette who owns the property has taken him on to sell but I ride the beastie, and Mel my OTTB.
The other two are little fatties so when they have the day off they don't need feed. So I went into the paddock with a halter to catch Mel but everyone is all worked up, brats they aren't normally like this but Teo has only just been put back in with our lot due to two other horses leaving(thank christ I couldn't stand these horses, broke thru fences thru out the property).
So Teo smashes thru the fence of course the others charge thru as well all running around like tards. I quickly race & get Mel's feed chuck it out of the paddocks. Then play horse herder, put the halter on Tahi get her out of the way cause Lisa would be unhappy with me if darling Tahi got kicked. Put her back. Teo & Mel are still showing what dorks they are hehe. Grab Mel put him in the other holding paddock with his feed, Mel doing a nice war dance round his feed bucking then con Teo with a handful of feed & put him back in with Tahi. Goodness that was lucky no one hurt & everyone happy now.
I can't believe it, it must be spring or something argh! Really need to start working Teo more but he seems to be unsound not totally sure why, no heat in his legs might be his back.
Today is Friday so will ride Mel tonight when I get home, think it might be up to the beach for a canter no schooling Lisa isn't riding Tahi so will able to really go for it tonight briliiant! Will give Teo a light lunge and see if I can see what is wrong with him. Want to ride him on the weekend.
Still planning to jump Mel on Saturday but was only wanting to trot pole, maybe a couple cross bars nothing much. Still want to focus on his flat work but mentioned it to Lynette last night(busy body hehe) & now she wants to change all the jumps around etc. I was happy as it was & just was going to play. Hopefully she has her normal dramas today & might even be lucky enough to be able to jump on saturday without her even there. Here's hoping huh?
Sorry for all the rambling if anyone actually bothers to read this :) But I have decided I will use this as my blog for me to see what training & riding I have done with the horses. It is a good tool I think I used to keep a work diary but this seems like a good thing cause my handwriting is messy :roll:
