|I was a bit snowed in during our storm!|
50s & sunny today, with snow slowly melting away :) And I finally got out to Tesla, almost 2 weeks since the last time...
I spent about an hour between brushing, hooves and wind-knots. He was very good for doing his feet (untied), and his playful self decided to grab my jacket hood and pull it around while I was doing the last hoof on front. He is cute sometimes. He got a little wide eyed when I tied him up and started to tack him up, but not too bad.
So he was a total teenager/toddler today. I couldn't do as much lunging before hand as the arena was still well covered in hoof+ deep snow. But we walked and did some figure eights, one instance of "let me try and jump forward, throw my head down and think about bucking" move. Then we just kept walking and walking...Once I felt he was 'ears on me' enough I went to take him out for a driveway walk. He did really well standing at the block when I remounted after opening the gate. Didn't move a muscle till I asked. He actually was crowding the block too, making it a little difficult to get on but that is better than being too far away!
He is darn cute tho... We just need more consistent riding time and get through this winter!
|Time to roll!|
