Freezing Friday

Ice rain actually fell and froze on my jacket as i walked home from the yard this evening. Boy was I glad that I decided to forego riding Nancy this evening in favour of trying to beat the ice cold and get home in one piece.

The girlies got to blow off some steam running loose in the arena tonight instead. They have been taking it real easy this week after their osteo adjustments on Monday, but with the ground in turnout being rock hard & my inability to turn them out yesterday meant there was energy building and no way for the little darlings to release it.
They have been holding it together really admirably as i lead the two of them over icy pathways to and from their turnout. They actually ran around this evening without any encouragement from me, at the end of the video I'm actually trying to slow them down as i didn't want them to snot themselves after I only just had them adjusted on Monday! (Post to come with osteo fixing)

Hopefully the video works...if not let me know in the comments and I'll upload it to youtube.

    1. I know K is such a silly-billy; i honestly thought she would just ignore them, she usually does when loose, but nope pas cette fois!
      Nancy was hilarious and actually cantered through them at one stage...by that I mean she cantered one and jumped the other two! I might have to revise her previous lack of desire to jump!! Squee jumpy - jumps!

  3. Nice to blow off some steam in the arena! I couldn't see the video but that could be because of the computer I'm on.

    1. It was so good for them, really made my heart swell to see them run gleefully about the place especially considering how well they had held it together craving to the field and back in the icy conditions.

    1. They play so well together, luckily N brings out the best in K and doesn't let herself be bullied or intimated by K's nonesense. They are very good for each other - ying & yang

    1. Hopefully it'll all wash away in the coming days & not come back!
      Probably wishful thinking but even a few days above 0° alongside the lengthening days gives me hope ☺

    1. She is such a sweetheart and always wants to run more than lazy Miss K (who has to be in front) "allows"

  7. Great video!!! They both have such lovely movement. Kika was cracking me up that she was using the poles of her own free will. :D

      Would love to get nice trot like that out of them under saddle - boy how humans get in the way with our micromanaging *sigh*
