Anyway, I started out with a quick spin on Kika in the main arena. She was fantastic, her schooling session sunday with the Guru and osteo visit last week have worked wonders. As I had so much to do it was a super quick spin, w/t/c circles, changes of rein and some lateral work. She rocked it all! :-D
Then I went out to turnout area to open new bale of hay, fill haynets & hang them for todays Lunchtime Mad-Dash to turn them out. Brought in Nancy & O, rinsed O's mucky hooves and left the two of them tied in grooming area to keep each other company as O's feet dried so that I could later put on her stable wraps. Another yard friend is ill and signed off work for the week, so I said I'd hand-walk her injured horse 10minutes & filled his water bucket etc. I then put wraps on O and put her away before deciding I had enough time to give Nancy a little lunge.

Our lunging track record isn't great, N tends to rush and rather trot than walk; but yesterday went really well. I don't know was this a once-off or if our partnership is blossoming and she reacts better to me & my requests. We do have to work on getting her to look inside the circle while lunging and perhaps introduce a lunging aid; pessoa work did wonders for Kika and she loves it.
I was very pleasantly surprised and overjoyed with the work I squished in. Rugged N backup, prepared carrots for three (my two & O), refilled the injured horse's water bucket as he'd spilt it then headed home to puzzle over apartment electric plans hahaha.
