My recent preventative of tons of sleep, and vitamin C has failed me. I am sick.
What could make that better you ask? You get a text saying your horse has ditched her blanket somewhere in her field and there is the possibility that the ridiculous wind from the sound has whisked the Rhino away. Grrreeeaaattt.
I layered up, grabbed a sympathetic friend and we went to go hunt for it. Thank goodness that the sun is staying out later now, because we managed to find it before dark. O was ‘naked’ and hiding in the far corner. I’d like to say she felt guilty, but she is an EXPERT at getting this blanket off, and I think she was secretly gloating. Jokes on her. I made it that far, I was definitely going to make her work. Into the barn came pony for a quick ride.
She cracked me up because she was obviously very eager under saddle, but would remember about one lap into each gait that she was exhausted. I had already been told that with a new horse turned out with her (poor guy) and a neighbors loose horse had set the horses to running like loons all day. Pony was tuckered out.
I called it quits after a short ride, and quickly untacked.
Cute little kids were all over the barn last night, so I gave O to one of them for a minute while I helped her older sister out (and yes, she had been around horses plenty, I didn’t just throw my horse at someone random). O was adorable, she just stood and leaned into that little girl while she was getting her face petted. Heart melt.
