Saturday night, I helped my friend breed minis. Random, I know, but it was an experience I won’t forget!!! HA She is barn sitting for a mini farm, and I came out to help. And got to see a young mini colt!
Sunday, we had terrible weather, and we were under tornado watches pretty much the whole day. So I wasn’t able to go out.
Monday, the weather was gorgeous! I got out there, brought Lib in from turnout, and began grooming the disgusting beast. If anyone ever thought that a black horse would hide dirt, they are so wrong. I feel like she ALWAYS looks dirty!
|Libby is not amused|
Anyways got on, and sent her to work right away. Did some shortenings/lengthenings, which is pretty hard for her considering the ring is on somewhat of a hill. But she figured it out. Did some turn on the forehands, and lots of serpentines. Also worked on her canter departs, which are so lacking, and after a while she got it. Overall she was a good girl, a little spooky towards the bush side of the ring, but she held it together, and we had a great ride.
|I need to darken this bridle… HATE light bridles on dark horses!|
Brought her in the barn and loved on her. Gave her a little haircut, her bridlepath, muzzle and ears were looking scraggly, and hosed her down before it got to cold. I really wish this barn had warm water, because I feel like the freezing water is not good at all for her muscles after a workout. I know they plan on putting it in, but I wonder how soon that’ll be…
I am so excited for this Saturday!! I really want to know what opinions this chiro has on Libby. I’ve always loved watching them work too.
