Valentine's bouquet for Laz
Happy Valentine's Laz!!!
"sniff sniff....I smellz sumsing gooodz"
How to loose a thumb while being too busy photographing your adorable shark...I mean horse
I still have my thumb.
Thank you glove.
Who knew there are brown bearded sharks that feast on carrots?
Guess what little Keebler got a lunge lesson on Valentine's?
He was great going to the left, and a wicked demon going to the right. Clearly, he just hasn't been taught but he is SO sweet and immediately stopped when I asked him to.
He got lots of "Goooood Pony" along with carrot treats.
He is a people pony and a hilarious comic.
When he bucks and canters and trots, it so funny, that I was literally in hysterics lunging him.
Laz watched the WHOLE time over their gate concerned for his baby.
Now, on to Sunday, I am not posting in order here but that's ok.
I borrowed J9's Barefoot saddle to test it out on Laz.
I wanted to see if he was comfortable in it, and if I was too.
It's a treeless saddle and to learn more about it, you can click here
I've been toying with the idea of when to put a saddle back on Laz
This may be the perfect compromise
Since I've gotten so used to bareback I didn't want a hugely bulky saddle that would change our communication. Thankfully, this Barefoot Cheyenne, even with a thick Skito pad, did not
It was super comfortable
It seems to fit Laz well and I'm planning on demo'ing a new saddle, with some minor changes for his body to see if we love it 100%
Best part?! It's affordable! We are not talking thousands, here and being I already own a Crosby AP I didn't want to spend a fortune BUT I definitely want a saddle that will work for Laz and I.
Mostly for him.
This may be the best all around, pleasure/trail, schooling saddle for us
He looks like a Shetland pony here!
I hate how my helmet makes my head look so large ...oh well
Also...a shout out to my WonderPony who was sooooooooo awesome about me tacking him up on a crazy windy day! He hasn't had a saddle on his back in over a year, and did he buck once? NO! Didn't even pin an ear...he did give a couple anxious chews, like "What's this" but I took my time with him. Did some ground work with the saddle on, etc and by the time I mounted, he was like "GET ON ALREADY!"
Crazy how the moon has been out during the day lately...see that tiny spec in the sky?
And surely you feel Spring in the air!?
It's been staying light out later (every minute counts) and glory be...a SUNSET?!
