You can make out the more industrial fan just under her neck. Unfortunately, I'm cleaning the stall and may never get out LOL. No offense to Camryn but, she never got it.
Very hot with high humidity today. I waited till 8:00 pm, worked her a little on the ground. Then began tacking her up, had noticed she seemed cinchy, had girth galls so understandable. Took my time and on the advice of friends simply did something else in between tightening. No tail wringing this time. I'd gotten the right size girth at last, added the scalloped shims to my Skito, lowered my stirrups a notch (oddly the right length for Camryn had my boots mid rib), I also lowered her bit a notch.
Last time she'd moved off from the mounting block, so before the bridle went on we worked on that and a little more groundwork. Hubby came out to take pix, I mounted with no issue at the block. As soon as I cued to move foreword, her back bunched, her head lowered (see where this is going), I had her head in a heartbeat, she did get a fart out but, the buck was tharwted with hubby non the wiser. WHEW! Soooo, thankful I've been taking lessons to build my confidence as Grace is not the confidence builder she was advertised as! She wanted to buck a few more times, she gave it up and tried to take off on the turns a bit. Can't believe I actually laughed! By the end I believe she realized I wasn't up there to kill her, that any issues with tack were now fixed, and I was staying put. She began relaxing enough that I could reach out and stroke her neck, which made her relax more. Not the ride I had trying her out but, progress from last time.
She thought when we were done that it was time to be fed, NOT! She figured she'd just go to her pasture, NOT! She did get wiped down with a damp towel, and thanked profusely but, stayed in the paddock.
Sure hoping the weather holds the next few evenings so we can work thru whatever we're working thru.
