I'm tired. Sipping peppermint tea and hoping to wake UP!
The weather guys said it'd be sunny and warm on Saturday. They were wrong.
It was cold and windy and grey with the added insult of snow on Sunday.
I took Toe tracking Saturday morning. He was GREAT and we'll head up to Chatfield Reservoir March 9 to see how he does tracking someone other than Joelynn.
Joelynn put a track in for me before I got there so I had to really pay attention to the signals Toe was giving me at the end of the line. I wasn't so good at being the dope at the end of the rope... I've got to learn to trust my little dog!
I did get me arse IN a saddle Saturday... for about 15 minutes... it was too muddy to do much of anything. I had a small area - maybe a 20 meter circle - dry enough to ride in. Hey, at least I sat on a horse for a short time!
I took both red heads up to Rex's for my Sunday ride on Sera... it's good for Rosso to hang out. He stood for trucks and trailers coming and going. There was even a large dog with a cone on it's head banging into stuff and walking around the barn yard. (dog had surgery on it's leg for something and wouldn't leave it alone)
I cleaned stalls - there is a nice 4 yr old Holsteiner filly for sale in a stall that Rex was talking to me about (ha! as if. I have my hands full with Sera and Rosso... besides I'm sure the filly is WAAAAY out of our price range..) and Rex's Mom brought in a new Grand Prix horse from Canada... he's BIG!
When I got home, the truck and trailer got stuck in all the mud... we had to unload the horses for Furry Husband to get it out. Thoroughly disgusted with the slop, we ended our day at The Rio Grande with margs and enchiladas....a perfect way to chase the grey/cold/snowy/mucky day out of our heads.
