Double post, but I can do that since its my journal right? ;D I forgot some stuff for today's 'entry'!
First off, on a nonhorsey topic, I schedualled my Drivers Test for June 3rds (closest available date >.> dumb huge city!) to finally get my license. I really dislike driving, but once I get my license I'll be more likely to be hired for a job, and it will be easier for me to go out to the farm daily, so fingers crossed that I passed! I have trouble with spatial distances because of my dyscaculia so I've found driving to be very challenging, but I THINK I'm ready!
Then, back to horses. Kenzie is such a goof. I made the mistake of leaving a halter, lead rope, and Sour's polos on her stall door to let them dry while I was working with Sour, and I heard a lot of snorting and hooves while I was de-hairing Sour. I tied her up, went over to see what the commotion was, and found Kenzie standing with all four legs braced out, tail screwed up, and a polo over her face. She had the most terrified look! LOL. I had to go 'rescue' her from the polo and by then she had decided that said pink polo wrap tried to kill her, and I spent another fifteen minutes following her around with it before she'd even sniff it, much less let me touch her with her. That girl!
I didn't really have time since I have a big research paper due in two days, but I took a little pleasure drive with Sour today too. It was dark by the time we got in, and we only got to drive for about 20 minutes...hardly worth it since it takes me 30-40 minutes to tack and hook her up by myself, but that's ok. I was pretty proud of her because she hasn't been driven in almost two weeks, with the exception of some ground driving, and she's typically very fresh when I haven't worked with her much, but she held perfectly still while I hooked her up and walked off like a champ, no funny business at all. Not bad for a green broke four year old who hasn't been getting much attention lately! I think she knew that I just really needed some fun time where I could enjoy my well-mannered horse instead of spooking, running away, and other normal stresses that come with young horses. What a good girl <3
