I know, I think the next one will go better. Lunging before you ride is a good idea too. It'll help a ton. I do it sometimes with Promise. Sometimes it keeps her more focused. You better ride tonight!!!!!! FINALLY! Hopefully the ground is dry by now too. You take the cutest pictures with the ponies lol. Diego is such a ham and such a cuddlebug!!! <3
I confess, I LOVE my farrier, he does amazing work, one of the best in the area...hard to find a good one like that...but...he kinda made me mad last night.
So, weeks ago, we planned he'd come out tonight around like 6pm (sometimes he doesn't arrive til 7, but no biggie) since he knows I work 9-5, & can't get there until 6. He's pretty flexible...
Well, last night he confirms for 6pm...then an hour later (mind you, it's like 8PM) says '11am would be better may have to come earlier'...um. He asked if my trainer/BO can hold for me, I said let me ask...well, she's busy a lot too. She's in NJ until 3, so that's not an option.
I then asked if there's any way he can come later this week or next week (even during the day, I can have my BO hold for me)...I can't really take off work, so yeah.
He's like, the next I have is April 9th...in two weeks. Ok, no big deal...but I asked him what time, because then I can coordinate with my BO, and he didn't respond...I probably won't know until the day of...so yeah just venting.
Then he says he can't do unnecessary late appointments, blah blah he has horses too and family, blah blah...I get that, but like an apology would be nice, or something? Like you can't just toss that on someone the night before. Not my fault you are busy, I have a busy life/job too.
Just annoyed me that's all. I am ALWAYS understanding about stuff like this, but it just got to me yesterday.
He did this last time he was out too, didn't tell me until last minute. Just frustrated I guess.
So, had to rant!
