Woke up this morning to snow. It don’t do that much around here and I sure wish it would stop it. I know, I know we need the moisture, but it sure gets in the way of work.
Had a really good day with all the horses. Am working on collection for Thunder. I don’t think this is a concept that anyone has spent any real time trying to teach him, but he is starting to get the hang of it and he seems to be trying to understand the reason for it. His mom is suppose to come today but with the weather the way it is there is not much we will be able to do.
Leo is still a little jumpy but he is starting to settle into his new environment and is trying to figure out what in the world I’m trying to do to him. He is still very nervous but is starting to tolerate the work.
Casino had a really good day yesterday as well. I don’t think that anyone has ever told him what to do in his life or if they have, not in the same way that I am. I expect a lot more from a horse as far as behaving then I think most folks and or trainers do, but by the time we were done he was happy to stand by my side with his head down and just wait for me. That is a good sign.
I have only ridden Thunder so far. The other two horses have a ways to go before I will get on them. You probably could ride the other two horses, I’m sure that if they were somewhere else that would have happened by now, but I see no need in taking chances with my health. So we will ride when the time is right.
Time for coffee now.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
