What a good day....
I am just so greatful for the timechange.
Today when I got home for work, I went on a search through the barns for one of my coats with several important items in it(like my phone bill). When I got up to the top barn, I just couldn't resist playing with my yearling Daniel. I love him so much. He is starting to shed out and I can *almost* see a semi-pretty horse under there. He's so sweet though, and looks like his is going to use his legs, hopefully his ugliness won't matter.
Then I went and played with Zoltan, my in-hand baby, and potential replacement for his sire(who is 28 this year). He is a tough little boy. He hasn't been handled much, leads, but is very unsure and gets defensive about some things. He is actually a bit aggressive at times.
Today though, when I went in with him, he was waiting for me with his ears up and he came right up for scratches, and only tried to bite me twice when I went to work with his legs. He knows now my "knock it off/don't even think about it" tone of voice. He is so smart. I like him very much. He gets better every day and tries so hard to know what I am doing.
Then, since I had a good deal of light left, I decided that I really wanted to ride. So I went out and caught my "recliner" Harry. I grew up on that boy, he is so comfortable it is like sitting on a recliner. I SOOO felt my faults of several months of not riding(I won't mention them but I REALLY need a serious practice horse. Hey, the sale is coming up, maybe I can twist mom's arm). But Harry was a doll as usual. I hope he is not as stiff as I will be in the morning. He seemed very happy to be ridden. Did all three gaits like a gentleman.
I PRAY you all have a horse like him some day. Took him 26 years to become this wonderful(I loved him forever. Blazes are my weakness), but really, he is the best horse ever. I did leadline with him. He kicked my butt when I moved up, but I still clung to him, and after many years we became a team. Plunk around at local shows. Trail rode for the 4H's free stuff. Trail rode for fun... Oh my dear Harold. What a good boy.
And what a good day! Hope all of you are doing well and reveling in the cool extended daylight.
OOhh I love the longer days too! I think they should make it a holiday when they switch the time back and when the days start getting longer.
Its been great having more time at the end of the day. It means more time to spend with my equine buddies. It also means I can go visit them now when I finish work. Something I couldnt do before due to winter.
