Today was my first day at volunteering at a ranch I found via craigslist. I'm basically working to be able to get free lessons and costs cut on show fees if I decide to show. I may bring Araya up here, but I'm still not completely comfortable with the people here and what her board would be like here. Anyway I didn't do much today. 8 o'clock this morning I was up there helping feed the boarders horses, the manager that I work for horses, the horses we have for sale and the goats, sheep and then I got to feed the chickens. After that I helped clean out stalls, paint some new jumps and standards. Held a horse or two to be clipped. I helped bring down some horses to an area by a creek so they could graze on the grass growing there. Then brought them back up and put them away. After that I and three other girls went on a trail ride which was cut short and I rode around the arena for a little while did some walk and trot. Then my knee started hurting badly and I had a weird cramp in my side so I stopped riding and put my horse away and helped do the evening feed which was the same as the mornings. Throwing hay off of a moving trailer is difficult, especially when you are trying not to slip off of it while throwing. I hit a poor little kid (baby goat) with two flakes of hay and he fell down, poor thing. That trailer is so slippery I've slipped on it so many times, getting on it and throwing hay off and just riding it. Its fun though.

I'll be going back tomorrow morning to do it all again. Though I think the farrier is coming and I think I may be going on a long trail ride to a lake. I also have my first lesson that day so we'll see how I do.
