Had a nice day yesterday with Diane and her horses. We worked on her ground work skills and did a little riding to show her some exercises that she could work on under saddle. She is doing a really good job given the time that she has to work with them. I'm looking forward to seeing her in Oct. and see how she is getting along.
Took my sister and her friend to the grocery store after that and I stayed with Tim, the horse, in the truck. He don't like to be alone.
Often I have to tell people at times things that I know will be hard for them to hear. But my job is to keep them safe and to do that you sometimes have to tell the truth. And at times we own horses that are just a little too much for us. There is no shame in letting a horse you know and love, go somewhere were they can have a good chance at a productive like with a job. Some folks don't want to let that happen and so their horse become a yard horse. And there is nothing wrong with that if you have the resources and time. But I don't want anyone to get hurt so for me.. that's more important than anything...
We are off to the dump this morning and the girls are trying to decide what to wear. I am trying to decide what white shirt and what black hat to wear. So I better get in there and get that done.
But first coffee..
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
