This past week, I babysat the barn. Two a days, I call it. I fed in the am/pm and it's the best way to start/end the day, even if it means it's 2 hour round trip x a day.
We barter and I got board off, so it's a win/win. They get to travel and I get to take care of the babies.
Side note; I found this little delicious gem at Trader Joes
"Pedigris"...and yes, it'a a racin' poneee
I started on Saturday, and I decided Laz was DEFINITELY sound enough to ride that evening
We've had gorgeously cooler weather
Joking around on my crazy, out of control OTTB...someone stop him
Quick family photo
Yippppeee, bareback pad, hunter boots and capri yoga pants
Yuck on my over using my inside rein, what is up with that?!
Evening, galloping up
"YAyyy Grainie grainz time!"
Mason my am pup
Mason my pm pup
Sleepy am pony
Rainy faces waiting to come up for dinner
AM Doe peeing...who ever sees that?! I guess we do...???
PM grazing along the fence line
My last day of feeding, I also had my trimmer coming, so I had a few hours to kill
I chose to make it a special day, and took Mason to Kensington for a swim play date
He was SO excited..I need to do this again!
Made quick friends with a boy scouts troop on a lunch break. They fed him turkey jerky, just look at that otter tail in side/side swing action
Back at the barn, drying off holding his toy
I can't believe I've had this face chosen as my baby since he was two weeks old...
He's pretty much the greatest chocolate lab on earth
The two Princes who chose to nap in their open, shaded stalls while the farrier came
Laz got re casted (double casted actually, we wrapped his equicast on his hoof, and then used my cheap Korean cast on outside to hopefully keep on for longer than 2 weeks) He's been moving SO beautifully again.
When we were done, Laz galloped the fastest I've ever seen down to his pasture along with a squeal, feeling great.
I look forward to our next ride
