I feel awful for saying it, but I am so done with winter.
Even when my winter has sunshine and 70-degree days, I want my long days back!
So.. we’ve been puttering, and schooling, and puttering some more.
January trail miles come to a grand total of… 33 miles. One ride per weekend. Yuck.
Good news: we are getting in an arena session once weekly, and a solid round pen session the other day, and toodling bareback another day. I just cannot be bothered to do more work in unfocused circles right now.
– offside mounting still.
– solo ride at least once
– speed work on the back trails? It’s incredibly boring, but gets the job done.
– arena work OR speed work once weekly, ideally both
– rasp feet approx once weekly
I ordered a blanket after the chilly windstorms of December
|if it looks a little funny, it’s because none of the straps are actually clipped|
and we are in the middle of a heat wave now.
|Girls still generally getting along. 65 and kind of cloudy.|
|Mom. Breakfast? Please? Seriously.|
In bonus injury news, she appears to have a spider bite of some kind. Note the weird pocket of fluid and such at her chest. It does not appear to be bothering her, and I did find the wound, so I’m not stressing (yet). It’s always something. One and a half week post-photo, it’s still there, but rather less; still not worrying!
