Just because it is now spring doesn’t mean I have less to do.
The old ladies are still fed, watered with eyes cleaned and mouths washed out. I throw carrots at the furious (but slimmer) Minions.
I need to bring a brush along some time and give everyone a good going over. I prefer the natural approach as it means their winter fur fall out when it are ready to go, which is plain English for they all look incredibly scruffy and need a proper brush!
And then I rode my horse. Yesterday was a blip and today Dreki seemed better. We are now just off the lead-rein, though Floss has to be in the arena for direction if required.
I love riding Dreki. He feels “right”, if that makes sense – strong, happy and does his very best.
It is like having a black version of Haakon, but younger and much greener. I backed and trained Haakon many years back so I remember the feeling.
Steering is coming, our brakes are good and every day we get a little bit better at this going around the school on the track listening to commands. One day we might even break out of walk! Who knows.
