Thanks everyone for all your kind comments! It's been crazy here the past few days, my quarter horse, Comet, got bit right on his ribs and it's not looking too good.. poor boy!
Fancy and I have just been going on short bareback rides the last few days. We'll do some ring work, or go out on the trails... she really does everything I ask her and more. Yesterday we galloped up the hill bareback and when I asked her to "whoa", she immediately went back down to a walk and walked back to the ring.
This weekend I'm hoping to go out on another long trail ride with her, and then we will do our tri-lesson like we do on the weekends. First we practice showmanship, then work on our regular three gaits, then we practice barrels. So far we're only at a walk with the barrels, but hopefully we'll be moving up soon! With the way she learns, she'll be running 17s in a month! ;)
Today her new blankets came in! I got her a 420D for the fall, and a 1200 for the winter. We learned three things today: 1. She's perfectly fine getting blankets put over her head and body...
2. She's a size 78.............
and 3. Lime green is NOT! her color!!!
But, you can't beat a good deal! And won't she be easy to find now! ;)
Hopefully I'll have some more exciting stuff to report tomorrow than I do today!
