Well...it did wind up raining yesterday for about 2hrs while I was riding a clients horse at her farm (she has a covered ring, so jealous). The ring wasnt too bad when I got back to the barn, so I was still able to lunge the girls.
Cuddles was much better about being lunged. She only pulled her "im going to jump, stop and be a butt" like twice before giving in. Maria lunged wonderfully and my bf was able to fix the rats nest that was her tail and get it put up..after she lept into the barn nearly landing on me...oh babies. Two great accomplishments yesterday!
Today, on the other hand, shouldve been simple. Easy lunge, since they will have Thanksgiving off if it rains (which they are calling for it). Maria went out, WTC, both ways, good deal. Cuddles...cuddles, cuddles, cuddles. She is just like her mother and her other sister, Fraeda. Fraeda, to put it nicely, was a devil horse. In the stall, working, no matter what, she was just a witch with a capital B. She liked to work, was a **** nice horse, but quite evil and it was funny at times, she knew who she could scare. Anywho, cuddles is very Fraeda-esque and its becoming more apparent...her stall manners, the way she works, just her appearance. Its weird sometimes. Anyway, she did her usual lunge, with her usual attempt at running the show. There was more of a challenge in her today, but again, she gave in and did what she was supposed to. The problem with her is she is really smart. And she knows what to do, she just wants to be the HBIC, and she needs to learn that that crown is worn by me. I think she is starting to figure it out, but she wants to push my buttons...so I will just push hers back, remind her how it is...and we will see who wins.
