"I'm telling you stories. Trust me." - Winterson

Feels just like summertime...

AMAZING weather today :) Wow.

The rabbit got a bath today. Why? Cause I wanted a reasonably useful excuse to be outside :) hahaha whatever it takes eh?

Went for a really amazing hack. Tied Sienna to the trailer while I was tacking her up. I know she ties reasonably well, so I figured it was worth a try -- and no better location than one where it's quiet and she's comfortable. N you know what? She was kewl w/ it. Tested it out briefly n then while not quite "school-pony-snoozing" relaxed, she was reasonable about it. I'm not as stunned by this as I could've been, I think I'm being spoiled by her superstarness, but I was still *very* impressed :) The "new thing" on today’s hack was water. Real water. As in a reasonably wide running stream (river? I don't know -- what's bigger than a stream but smaller than a river?). hahaha she wasn't terribly impressed w/ the mud before the water, but was pretty good once she was actually in the river :) My little superstar! N of course, we happened to hop over a couple XC jumps on our travels. hahaha I can't wait till she's ready for show season.

Had to laugh though as we were trotting along and she was trying oh-so-hard to lead, but our trail buddy is very much the dominant mare and did NOT want to give up her spot. So I'm holding Si back and holding Si back and she keeps trying so hard to pass n then all of a sudden all the tension goes out of her, she completely chills out and drops back to a normal distance to follow at. Huh??? All I can think of is she finally clued in that it's *not* a race. She really doesn't have to be first. Anyways, after that she was awesome.

It's looking like it could be a fun summer :)



Love the blog, the new look is very pretty - but it's really hard to read!! Anyone else with me here?

I know, b*tching about it is self indulgent, but who else will listen to me? ;)



awwww I'll always listen to you Jen :)

But I don't find it hard to read *g*

hahaha will look around for another version @ some point, but given how long it too me to get THIS one working, don't count on it any times soon :)
