An Indoor Day

♬ “Oh, the weather outside is frightful”♬ – gale force wind with, what feels like, buckets of rain or hail being thrown at us.

So we went indoors.

BeAnne was in one of her moods.

The one where she feels that everyone hates her.

She does do resentment very well.

We tried to coax her out of it.  But no, she was having none of it.

So we gave up and left BeAnne to her sulk.

Meanwhile, Daisy went to fetch Kappi, leaving Taktur to eat his Handsome Prince food uninterrupted.

Kappi has not been ridden since Summer, when Daisy went away to work in Norway.

She said he was on the fat and unfit side but still the same horse.  She even found his trot which has been missing for a while.  Icelandic gaits come and go like the wind.  Sometimes there is no obvious reason – a frustrating mystery that happens.

Next, Daisy tried out Esja. Bjørn, her trainer (both Esja’s and Daisy’s) had asked her ride Esja as he is very busy with the lead-up to Christmas.

So Daisy exercised Esja and said she was very similar to the youngsters she trains.  Happy little Esja was thrilled to be doing something and had her ears pricked forwards all the time.

Next it was Floss’ turn.  She had her daily lesson on Haakon.

I went and mucked out The Grandes Dames’ Boudoir, trying hard not to be the interfering mother.  When I returned to the school, Daisy had Flossie tölting round and round in circles, concentrating on bending in the right direction (I think).  Floss looked very good and has come a long way in a very short amount of time.

It is lovely seeing Floss and Daisy using the indoor school and enjoying the horses together – makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!
