Pammon has been a good boy with his hand walks. We're going to start tack walks on the weekends and continue with hand walks during the week. We've had the ok for tack walking all along, but I prefer not to do that in the dark since we are aided by some ace tabs... I want to make sure he can see where he's putting his feet with me up there! But he's been a pretty good boy. I got him some toys for his stall to try and keep him entertained.
Shiny girl hasn't decided how much she likes being the sole riding horse in the barn. She thinks it might be way more work than she signed up for.
So in an effort to get out of all that work, yesterday she had The Slobbers. She was turned out in the back paddock yesterday and must have found some moldy clover back there. So gross. Definitely do not recommend letting your horse have the slobbers.
Rio seems to be much more comfortable barefoot, so that's pretty exciting. Also cheaper!
I still didn't get to have a lesson on Eros. I was thinking of doing one Saturday as Sunday I had to ride at dark thirty, but I totally forgot to sign up. So alas, we had two flat days. But he is feeling GREAT! Between the injections and the body work, he's like a brand new horse! And we're treating for ulcers too. I'm hopeful that will make him a little more willing to come forward on the flat... but not too much over fences! Time will tell I suppose.
|Eros isn't super excited about 5 am rides.|
One of the boarders at Eros' barn is an author, and she hosted a really fun book launch party at a local gallery for her newest book "Drive". I've known her practically forever. She was a big kid when I was a little kid at the barn I learned to ride at. So yeah, we go waaaayyyy back. It was a really fun party, at which I took zero pictures because I'm a terrible blogger. But some of us did get a group selfie at the bar afterwards... Author not included. #fail
The game was great! Home run after home run for the home team and a win!
