It's so nice to be able to go back to the barn and DO STUFF!! lol I managed to clean Aires stall today, helped my friend clean her two stalls, even turned Aires out all day. He was an absolute angel. He realized that I couldn't walk very fast and adjusted his speed to me (which is what he's supposed to do anyway, but come on, he's two!). He was also really good about being saddled, even when we tried our new french link snaffle on him (which he LOVES, by the way! No more chewing!). He was so happy to see me, too, since I couldn't make it out there all weekend. He stood with his head over the side of his stall (which is just shorter than I am...that boy is shooting up like a WEED!) and lipped my hair. Then he slipped his head through the bars and gave me horsey hugs. He was just very clingy the whole time I was at his stall. Then, when I went to turn him out, he usually takes off as soon as I unclip his lead rope, but I was having a little trouble because it's a new rope halter that I'm not used to (bought it the day I got hurt) and he just stood there waiting for me to unclip it, even though all the other geldings were trying to get him to play with them.
In case you couldn't tell, I have the best horse EVER!!
Do not tell me I can't...because I will show
you that I can.
