I think everyone around the farm including the horses are starting to get more motivated. This weekend the weather was gorgeous with temps hovering near 70 degrees. They were all treated to a spa day, minus baths. All manes and tails were trimmed, shedding blades and an assortment of brushes were used to groom the herd.
Then it was off to the arena for some basic longeing work. Dusty longed perfectly again, my little superstar can’t wait to get back to work. She even came to the gate when I called her in. I’ve started putting her saddle on during work so when I actually do ride her she won’t be back sore. I guess you could liken it to forming a callous on your fingertips when you start learning to play the guitar.
Blue was a good boy for the first time in a few weeks. He’s back to his professional “ I know what I’m supposed to do” longeing attitude. I was very proud of him too.
Sami was probably surprised to start back in work but it didn’t stop him from being a good boy. Seems our chunky little monkey hasn’t forgotten one command he’s learned and he looked very good on the longe. Way to go little guy!
My daughter longed Grady and Nate and they looked good also. Both were very well behaved. The only two left out of the longeing were Mellon because he’ s retired and would take offense at being asked to work and Donnie because he’s still dealing with his problem. The vet is coming out Thursday to take another look at him.
So all in all we had a great time this weekend and the weather was perfect. Now that’s more like it!
Until next time
