Even when my winter has sunshine and 70-degree days, I want my long days back!
So.. we've been puttering, and schooling, and puttering some more.
January trail miles come to a grand total of... 33 miles. One ride per weekend. Yuck.
Lesson?? - inquired, did not happen, it'll come sooner or later.
Good news: we are getting in an arena session once weekly, and a solid round pen session the other day, and toodling bareback another day. I just cannot be bothered to do more work in unfocused circles right now.
- offside mounting still.
- solo ride at least once
- speed work on the back trails? It's incredibly boring, but gets the job done.
- arena work OR speed work once weekly, ideally both
- rasp feet approx once weekly
I ordered a blanket after the chilly windstorms of December
|if it looks a little funny, it's because none of the straps are actually clipped|
and we are in the middle of a heat wave now.
|Girls still generally getting along. 65 and kind of cloudy.|
The bale bag experiment continues. Currently they're lasting a full five feedings. Confetti is still not entirely convinced this is okay, and she ought to get food at every mealtime, please. In theory they start eating less after a few weeks.. she didn't read that manual either, so we're still waiting.
|Mom. Breakfast? Please? Seriously.|
Did you know that if you leave strings on the bale in a bale bag, and your pony manages to get the strings tangled around the netting, said pony can make a nice nose-shaped hole in the bag? Yep. I have no photo, because I discovered the strings at 6:40am when I needed to be on my way to work. No more strings for her! (Except I think I left them on today. Eek! Well, they'll come off this weekend.)
