It was my first time on horseback in 10 days, also the last time Nancy had someone on her back. Admittedly she did spend the afternoon on turnout and hasn't been locked in her stable all day every day since our forestry hacking Saturday week. Yet not an iota of fuss was made by Miss Nancy. We had our usual problems, so business as normal for us. We shall see if Kika is as good tomorrow ;-)
I was lazy again & didn't change from my Ariat Windemeres into my paddock boots and gaiters, but after sorting the turnout area with water and preparing the haynets for tomorrow; doing the girls feet etc i was rapidly running out of time before lights out. Plus after riding i still had to cool Nancy out, get Kika from walker and change her from fleece rug to stable rug, tuck each girl in for the night and pull their heavier turnout rugs with hoods (which I have removed for the moment) out of storage & tidy away lighter turnout sheets + dirty saddle pads & Nancy's busted purple stable rug into bin bags ready to go to the cleaners.
Gotta love horses, no rest for the wicked (aka me ☺)
