This post is basically a quick summary of most of the month
Rain, rain and heat and storms.
Below are the two OTTBs grazing one evening in the rain, happily.
In the major heat, my BO fed hay because the boys chose to stand in the stalled shade most of the day versus grazing
I fed dinner this evening..here they are racing up after I gave a whistle
Soaking wet muzzle in full on molest mode
My after work feeding attire; slip off wedges for rainboots.
Tres chic I know
After the rain photo opt
My best partner in crime, happy to be cooler and wet
A quick lunge after they digested a bit, and I used a fallen stick from a storm, as a cavaletti
Eye to eye
Another day, the BO and I did a quick bareback road ride. It was great and the weather wasn't 1000 degrees
It WAS HOT so it was very relaxed but I wanted to keep him moving. His hoof cast has fallen off but he's remained sound
I rode him just in his halter. Floral portrait anyone?
One day driving out to the barn, I saw a tiny Momma deer and her Bambi drinking rain puddles
So cute and small!
Into the secret trail...
Last Saturday, the BO and I wanted to see if our boys could handle a trail ride at our nearby system.
If one pulled up sore/lame, we could quickly turn around home. It's great when we are all on the same page.
Heading down the busier dirt road to our connector trail
Gorgeous! I think the last time I rode here was back in March!
We had a ball and both the boys did great. We kept them at a walk.
Pito is healing from a possible suspensory injury, and Laz..well, he's better but he's had a few off weeks
Starting tomorrow, I watch the barn/boys for a week which means I'll drive twice a day to feed
I love feeding the horses and being there early/late-it's a great way to start/end the hectic day.
It will be a juggle as my work schedule is wonderfully crazzzzytown right now
