Sunny Sunday. I went for a typical visit/groom session and wouldn't you know it but the warm sun, the Fall colors and my snoozy puppy dog of a pony lured me into a quick ride.
It was like "Uh, OK stars are aligned...I'm doing this"
I had promised to not ride when alone but I just couldn't pass it up. With Fall in Michigan, it goes from glorious to wet/cold in a day, so I carpe diem'ed that shit and did it!
I just told Laz, "Pony...take care of us" and thought good thoughts. But more so, he gave me the vibes that all was going to be well.
I threw on his bitless and his bareback pad and hopped on.
At 29 weeks, (7 mths) my hop is a little heftier but my stoic pony just STOOD there....love this fraggle rocked maned of a horse. Damn.
I'll tell you the dismount is MUCH harder to slide off when there is a hard belly in the way. Sorry baby that I smushed your face, but I think you enjoyed the ride too.
We just walked around. Ambled really, it was lovely.
It felt good for me, and he seemed to enjoy his little job as well.
Jump, one day...in our future...one day....
It was so quiet and peaceful during our ride. You can hear the squirrels running about, and the leaves gently falling, and Laz's big happy exhales
I swear, I am the pregnant one....
Focus on the pretty leaves in his fat shadow instead
Pokertown pony. My favorite....
It's amazing how a ride, no matter if an amble or a trail ride, can just lighten my soul up
This may be my last ride until birth (early Jan??)....I don't know, but I thoroughly enjoyed it
My sweets waiting after untacking for his cookies for his Rolex performance
I'm smitten for him.
The obsession just doesn't quit...Le Sigh
On Monday, Laz got floated
He goes along so well, doesn't hardly move and all without sedation.
Thanks for Miles's Mom for giving us this Equine Dentist's name years ago! He's the best
During his jaw breaks, Laz was walk towards me like "uh saves me....??" it was quite funny.
More positive hoof changes took place but I'm going to allow a bit of time to pass before posting so I can hopefully show some dramatic growth changes
Keep your fingers crossed for us
