Anyways appointment was outside of town 6 out of my comfort-zone so I wasn't sure how to walk back into town so ended up waiting an hour and a quarter for a bus which then meant I had to take another bus to get back to town, before deciding sod it and going to have dinner with my mother to wait for the traffic to buzz off and buses to run normally again.
|Outside my house this morning as I made my way to the bus stop|
There is an 'after' shot from when I groomed her, but phone battery is dead and I didn't manage to e-mail photo to myself before it conked. She had a day off work that day and Kika got lunged in the side-reins, and was an angel to her credit.
As I mentioned above I have no real news to report as haven't done anything with the girls seeing as I didn't get to the yard last night. L has today off work (as she has to work Saturday - Boo!) so she'll turn then out and maybe ride one if she has time/fancies it - decision is hers. I'm more than happy to exercise both this evening, but neither horse will be negatively affected for being ridden by a better rider if she feels inclined, so who am I to refuse? ;-)
I'll leave you with a parting pic, snapped Friday evening when I had to two run together in a bid to help Nancy with her Canter - easier to loose school two and have them motivate each other than my being forced to chase them...
|Apologies for quality of shot, phone & dark arena don't always work together|
Nice that you have L to help out! :)ReplyDelete
She is a Godsend!Delete
I can't handle that much snow!! D:ReplyDelete
Snow's ok compared to the black ice we had last night! That was heaps less fun! :(Delete
Scary trying to get horses in from the field when our footing and their footing is going - came from nowhere too! I got home roads & footpaths were fine by the time I left the house to walk to yard after changing I almost snotted myself stepping out the front door and there was ice everywhere & invisible to the naked eye.
I HATE WINTER!
ugh, snow! So cute they get along!ReplyDelete
Thanks KK, get along might be a bit strong at the moment. Kika deff seems interested I think Nancy tolerates her though, lol!Delete
Which i find hilarious as I honestly thought Kika would be the problem based off her previous reaction to other horses!
They love to surprise us and keep us guessing don't they? ;)
Sounds great Aoife. Have been reading your last 4 posts so said I'd comment on the last one rather than them all.ReplyDelete
It really sounds like you are doing a great job with both your girls. Kika is going like a dream by the sounds of it, and its really handy that L is there to ride her too, wish I had a guru to take Millie sometimes too, lol.
N sounds like she is still progressing great with you. She sounds very level headed as you said, any young horse would have freaked out in those situations. Well done on all your progress, looking forward to next update.
Yourself and Millie do great without needing the help of a Guru, without L I don't think Kika and I would've been able to keep going. My confidence was at rock bottom & she was hurting and I didn't know what to do to sort out our issues.
Fingers crossed we are out of those woods and can keep on our onwards & upwards cycle. :D
Horses just love to roll in the muddiest parts of the paddock dont they.ReplyDelete
Yep, I'm just thankful neither one of them is Grey/White! :DDelete
