This weekend was the first super low key weekend Kyle and I have had in awhile. I was farm sitting on Saturday. Naturally this meant that the weather had to go nuts including a 30• temp drop and snow. I was lucky that the horses already had blankets on from the night before though because switching blankets 900x in 24 hours is enough to make someone mad. Also it wasn’t quite cold enough for buckets and troughs to freeze *hallelujah*.
Unfortunately for Bear he became #balllessandflawless Saturday morning (thanks exquisite equine for the phrase). He now has to be on “stall rest” so to speak for a week and can’t come to the barn with me or play/run/jump at all. He was already beside himself yesterday so we will see how the rest of the week goes. On the horse front all of the creatures are good. I finally got to ride Annie yesterday and was also able to try out our new (to me) Trust hackamore. I will reserve total judgment for a few more rides but holy smokes it was like riding a different horse. Hopefully I will get to ride more this week but all of my barn buddies commented how much happier she seemed and how relaxed she stayed while we were jumping.
Any big weekend happenings for you all?
