|Not this weather. I LIKE this weather. It's actually April weather.|
|But this forecast can fuck right off. STOP SNOWING, IT'S APRIL.|
|Cinna the squirrel.|
|Trying to lull me into a false sense of security by meandering on the line to start.|
About the time I climbed on, DH got home, which was reassuring -- always nice to have my 911 dialer available should things go south ;) I'm very much a plan for the worst, hope for the best kind of person.... haha. I walked her for a while and caught up on work things with him, then put Cinna to work. She was very excited for every upward transition, but was easily checked with a half halt, or when I slowed my posting. The first canter transition was equally as exciting, as she vacillated between knowing she needed to canter nicely but also really, really wanting to buck with excitement. She settled for bunny hopping a few times while I giggled at her. As I rode by DH, he commented that she looked ready to be naughty -- and I replied that she was thinking about it, but that she knew better. She did settle into her effortless canter that is so pleasant to ride, and I just grinned from ear-to-ear.
|So sweaty and itchy.|
|I laughed so hard at this representation of our arena ride (I zoomed in and cut off the hacking outside the arena).|
Mostly, I was just excited to soak up the beautiful weather on my best grey girl! Although it's almost worse that the weather keeps teasing us with occasional nice days before plunging us back into cold, gloomy grossness. Ughhhhh. OK I'm going to end on a positive note, enjoy this silly video of my roosters fighting earlier this week (I broke it up, don't worry). And happy Friday!
