What a day hubby and I had. We went to a cool event in the next town. An Equifest. I did get pics! Tomorrow I will write all about it. I even got me some kettle corn,,,yum!
This evening hubby had to move a water line that was at the end of the stalls that broke this morning, so while he was doing that I worked with Bunny (our big beauty QH) with leading with respect. We had allowed her to basically walk too close and too fast, mainly because we did not know what we were doing as a horse owner. It took very little time to have her back to being respectful and minding well. She had it in her from years of being handled, it was me that did not have the knowledge to keep her in line consistently.
Then when hubby was done with the line, we took Jackie (our palomino) and Toby, her baby colt, out on lead lines. Jackie is so well tuned and doesn't need work, but we figured to have Toby watch and learn. He did amazingly well. This was the first time we actually "worked" on him leading. Maybe it helps that his trust with us is strong. Plus his mommy has been a great teacher. Hubby and I tease that she is so laid back and mellow that we have to put a quarter in her to move. In a horse training class, we were told that horses young can get a lot of their mannerisms from the mother. We feel we are truly blessed with this little guy, he is a good boy.
Then we came in and watched the Nationwide Nascar Race, (it was recorded). Good thing about recording the race is we can blast through the commercials, bad thing is that sometimes you have to make sure you also set the DVR to record the program that follows the race. Sure enough, it was down to 3o laps to go and the recording stopped and we had not gotten the following program recorded. CHIT! hehehe. We did find out that the driver we hoped would win, won... cool!
Now it is my time to visit blogs. I started at 8:30, it is now 10:45. I start out at the ones I have in my blogroll, then I tend to branch out and end up reading a ton more. There is just not enough time to continue with my venture tonight for much longer cause my eyes are burning but there are so many cool blogs to check out. I AM ADDICTED. I have so many new ones I want to add to my blogroll.... all in time, it will happen.
I visited Pony Girl Rides Again blog a few minutes ago and she mentioned that over at Mud Ranch's Real Dirt blog about a great game going there where you can pick which of Doreman Burn's cowgirl portraits best represent you. So, I picked....Gotta have the hair just right and a nice pair of earrings on to go riding...LOL Actually I wished I could look so good in my wranglers.. HA!
