A Day Off






So I have a day off today and I'm proud to say... I took complete advantage of it. Woke up this morning, fed the horses, fought the urge to do all my pony chores, came home, ate some cereal, and fell asleep on the couch. I woke up about 10 minutes ago (noon) and felt great. Yes, a little guilty because of all the things I could've done already but I think I needed it... Dad did too. For once he didn't come in tapping me on the head yelling, "Madeline! Maaaadeline!" He let me sleep! ON THE COUCH!

I thought I'd take a moment to post some pictures of my recent ponies. Susanna is on the left, Pretty on the right, and Mr. B right straight center. My friend Bre came down to visit from Maine and we had a little photo shoot with the pony. I should definitely post some pictures. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow night. :) I got some great shots of the two of them.

I had time yesterday to play with the kids, and I finally took Brantley out and threw him on a lunge line just to let him jump and buck and get those baby kicks out. My plan is to do that again today. I walked him around the indoor to cool out and he was so sweet and happy that he got to come out. I rode Pretty afterwards and we just trotted and worked on easy direction changes. Trot trot trot, circles, direction change, extended trot across the diagonal, trot trot trot, circles. She was great. Hoping to get out on the trails with Kate tonight. Apparently she had a fantastic ride off 'solo', click here to read about it! Trail rides are great for weeks like this. Snow is supposedly rolling in. Yay snow shoes!

I love that halter on B :) My blog is being a poop and won't let me respond directly to any comments, but I wanted to let you know that I LOVE the Stacy Westfall halter! It's softer rope, but has that wrapped noseband that gives very quick, direct cues without overdoing it. Definitely worth the buy! Now I just need to get my hands on some Clinton Anderson DVDs and I'll be a happy girl!

Brantley & I would love to hear from you!
