I'm definitely jinxing myself with that title, but oh well. Monday night we heard the peepers for the first time, and it feels like spring, so I'm gonna go with it!
|Wednesday it was SEVENTY ONE DEGREES!|
|Cinna is always SO JEALOUS when it's Ruby's turn.|
|Even if I only ever use this mirror to take outfit selfies, still 100% worth it lol. I do use it for more than that, but it's not like I can take pictures of myself riding by it while I use it to eyeball what weird things my limbs are trying to do.|
|We had company!|
|The peanut gallery was heavily involved, haha.|
|Now that it feels more like spring Cruce is living his BEST LIFE. He loves to go outside and sun himself for hours.|
|I rode Cinna last night. She has matured SO MUCH. I was prepared for some shenanigans, but she came out all business. Although we still had to go look at ourselves in the mirror for a minute before she wanted to concentrate. SO vain, haha.|
|Fun new breeches that I finally got a chance to wear.|
Cinna was so good that after 20 minutes of great work, I hopped off and took her for a hand walk in the back field. She was pretty sure this was ABUSE and would like to report me to PETA plz. I have never met a horse who is SO solid in the arena and such a trainwreck outside of it, sigh. Although she's generally fine with company, just not alone, which I know just means we need to keep working on her confidence. It's a slow slog, but she'll get there. Eventually. I hope. I didn't want to end on that note, so after we walked around the back field for a while, I went back in the arena and climbed back on to walk around a little more.
|On high alert.|
|Plodding around in the arena on the buckle 5 minutes after trying to bolt in terror from the waving grass in the field.... lol.|
|She also almost dumped me spooking at the goat pen. The EMPTY goat pen. Horses are great... lol.|
|In all seriousness though, I do love her, she's such a ham.|
Hopefully I have snapped out of my winter doldrums now and can find the energy to keep going (and writing, even if most posts are just a collection of photos and my disjointed thoughts on them lol). TGIF! I hope you have lots of fun horsey plans for the weekend, and that you're enjoying similarly nice weather!
|The cutest blep you've ever seen.|
