To the mounting block, no prob, standing till I asked for forward, no prob. Forward, she thought we'd just take off as fast as she could. A few one reins, she began listening. By the end she was strolling and her brakes were back in place. Hubby will be out of town all week, with no one home to call paramedics (almost kidding), we'll stick with groundwork. Won't have the boys as often this week either, so if the weather cooperates, we'll be playing in small amounts several times a day. That's the plan. We won't be hitting the trails anytime soon SIGH.
Taped GRACE this evening, the weight gain has slowed, which is good. Gain this week was 29lb, total in 2 weeks she's had a total gain of 95lb. I've cut back on her midday hard feed so she doesn't gain to much to fast. I'll slowly eliminate it. Her ribs are still a bit visible, though not from across the field any longer. She still has some angles, they're beginning to fill in too.
Great news is we had a little visitor today. My daughter Jillian and grand daughter Kennedy are up from NC. Kennedy got to meet her first horse...
Oooooh, should I?
Yes, I pet horsey ❤️
Kennedy just turned 8 months, same age as first time Lincoln got to sit on Camryn. Maybe next week for Kennedy on Grace?
Kennedy: Wow, you're big horsey...Grace: you're tiny, but cute human child.
