Back To CC

So Brantley made his way back to Cherry Croft yesterday. "New" pony friend Wendy was so nice to trailer us. I'm so lucky to have friends like that and I blame K for them all. He pretty much got right on the trailer which is something I was a little worried about but he actually fits on hers so it was easy. I followed her up and unloaded him easily. He gave a low nicker when he came off the trailer looking around like, "I remember this place..." He quieted down quickly and we took a little walk. Cindy welcomed us and we put him in his stall and she had cleared a spot for us in the tack room. She's so wonderful. W and I played with some kittens while we waited for CB to get done with his lesson.

D showed up and we talked for a while and then I took a video of CB's ride on this young lanky Dutch Warmblood for his owner. After everyone left I hung out for a while. Pulled B out of the stall and brushed him down, picked his feet, and took him for a walk on the trails.

I haven't had a chance to get on him over the past week. He's finally back to his quiet self, dragging his nose on the ground while on the lunge line. We've been taking it easy. I started running again, which I'm really excited about, so Friday I showed up at the barn, threw on B's halter, and took him out for a 2-3 mile run.  We ran into a little family that had 3 kids and they cuddled with him. He dropped his head for them to scratch and the hand fed him some grass. He was complimented by a fisherman and a young couple that were talking an afternoon stroll. Felt like a very proud mom for how polite and quiet he was.

Why didn't I go running with the pup you make ask? K9 Chevy was volunteered (by me) to donate 500mls of blood to an older dog that was bleeding internally and didn't have enough platelets to stop the bleeding. He was a very good donor (and very drugged) and has been resting over the last week. He should be back to normal tomorrow and we can start running again down to the beach. We've been slowly reintroducing playtime with Dad (who bought him a new soft Frisbee from Cabela's for his efforts).

Other news: WIND IS AT THE FARM FOR A VISIT! While B is away I offered our pony friend Cassie to keep her pony in his stall so maybe I could help her. We'll see how that goes but I'm really optimistic.
