This is more a training-of-the-rider-log of sorts, but I wanted to write it down somewhere just to have somewhere to reference our progress. Because I am a crazy lady and I don't trust the internets not to fail on me, I'll also be copying posts over at http://eightthreetwosix.blogspot.com/ . It started as an assignment for a photo class hence the weird earlier posts. Anyways, I brought her home last Thursday, so I guess that is where this begins.
Day 1, copied over from the HR side:
Of course we had to stop by the barn on our way in Wednesday night
We got to the
barn around 5 Thursday morning (home time)
Got her all suited up
She hopped in the trailer without hesitation
And then we were off
She was calm and quiet the whole way and not even impatient at rest stops
We were lucky weather-wise because we passed through a nice rainstorm before it got a chance to get too hot. Then when we got near the barn, it cleared right up
And gave her a chance to stretch her legs
And then put her in her new house so she
She loves her gate
And her window
And she was totally chill about drinking the new water. After she had a rest, I gave her a sponge bath
And then we went out for grass.
So, that's it for Thursday. Still to come: Friday and Sunday.
