My hubby is going to finish up her downsized pasture tonight. She was on 6 acres of lushness alone where I bought her. She's fat, not good for the older girl.
Since it isn't ready I took her for a hand graze this afternoon, it was HOT today. I was over trudging around the pasture in about 10 minutes. I actually managed to get on the behemoth bareback without assistance. Some jumping & grunting was involved but hey, I made it :) I spent a good hour halfway napping on her while she ate happily.
Still need the mounting block with the english saddle, little too old to be doing the splits.
