I rode Raudi and Pete rode Hrimmi. Hrimmi behaves differently for Pete than she does for strangers. In other words, she moves out. Though she stopped a great deal, I am convinced that she is merely a late bloomer and will shortly come into her own. And Raudi, she’s good because she has so many miles under her girth.
After, I rode Tyra around the loop and ponied Tinni. There is no doubt about it – Tyra is right now our super star. She moved out nicely today, and once, when Tinni stopped, she held still for a bit rather than joining him in a grass fest. I was so impressed. Once again, I am going to have what one of my MFA teachers called a happy problem. Who do I ride, Raudi or Tyra? Right now all the horses are on a riding schedule, so this is not the problem that it might otherwise be.
Pete made Indian food for dinner. I returned to working on my Bones for Life lessons. This is scary. I don’t know if I will get all the way through the lessons that Shari expects me to teach. As it is, I am now looking for short cuts.
I am now momentarily going to go out and milk Stormy. Her production is down, even though she’s being milked three times a day. This is just the way she is. A little bit of sunshine in her day would also help matters considerably.
