|I LOVE the BBT - Hopefully Sheldon is wrong on this occasion though ;-)|
What the plan was supposed to look like for the week:
"Monday - Guru schools Kika / I rode Nancy
Tuesday - Ride Kika / Lunge Nancy
Wednesday - Guru schools Nancy / I lunge Kika
Thursday - Farrier due / down day for girls
Friday - Ride both girls
Saturday - Ride both girls
Sunday - Lesson on one or both girls"
What it is now looking like:
- Nancy not lunged Tuesday
- Neither worked Wednesday
- Farrier + planned day off Thursday (hopefully goes to plan)
- Friday will be lunging day for the pair of them
- Saturday pole work day for change of pace for them & me
- Sunday lesson with Guru or flatwork day...hopefully better for changes in scheduling ;-)
Also think I should mention that I changed the url for my blog...in case anyone was having difficulty finding me - please spread the word!
I changed my blog address from lyssatra.blogspot to pampered-ponies.blogspot; as Lyssatra is Kika's registered name & I wanted to include Nancy in the url...call me sappy & sentimental and I'll wear those badges with pride when it comes to my girls as I want them both to get equal recognition & blogtime.
In actual pony news today, I did manage to make my lunchtime-mad-dash-on-public-transport-across-town to turn the girls out. My worries about the farrier not being finished in time for me to be able to turn the little darlings out for the afternoon (which would have sucked with my not being able to get to the barn tonight if they'd had to spend the day inside!) proved unfounded as he was just finished with Kika when I arrived. Sadly for him he had to contend with my broken & very poor German as i asked if they were good & their feet were ok - thankfully all seems well! *happy dance*
Took two quick snaps of the girlies feet for memorabilia sake cos as we've already established...I'm a sentimental sap!
|Kika 2-front & 1 sneaky hind|
|Nancy 2-front & 2-hinds'ish|
If i understood correctly with my poor German, he said all 6 barefeet were fine - 4x for Nancy & 2x hinds for Kika. He said that he made Kika's feet a little smaller however that it shouldn't cause a problem for arena work, but that she might be a little ouchy if too much work done too quickly outside of arenas or on gravel...as I have no such plans, this is a non-issue for us. :)
