Was a pretty slow day around here yesterday. Just me and the dogs and a cat I haven't seen sense Kathy left.
Kathy when back to see her parents in Kansas. Her mother fell a couple weeks ago and broke her hip, so Kath when back to help them with stuff.. I don't do very well when she is gone, but she will be home today so you can guess what me and the boys, dogs, are doing today. Yep, you guessed it.
My sister will be here sometime today. She's coming in from K.C. and will be a treat to have her here for a couple days. She is bring a friend that I don't think has ever been to New Mexico, and they want a horse back ride so we will get to do that this weekend sometime...
We had a little rain last night but not near enough.
I have a riding lesson with a student in Deming tomorrow morning and look forward to that. I have worked with Diane in the round pen the last time I saw her, and from her reports she is making good progress with her four horses, but has one that she is trying to ride out, away from the house and the horse get freaked out when they get s certain distance from her place. I have never seen Diane ride so am pretty sure, even with my describing what she needs to do, that she may be giving mixed signals to her horse. So will let you all know how that turns out, and will try to get pictures.
Am learning a new fiddle tune while Kathy is away. Called the banish misfortune. I know, what a name, but it's pretty and fun to play.
I think the horses have enjoyed a little down time. Funny, and I tell folks this all the time, if your horse is easy to catch you probably are not working with him enough. Horse, if not the laziest animal on the planet, is pretty close to the top of the list. So they would much rather be with their herd mates then be with me, cause every time I come around there is something to do, somewhere to go, something to go see. So is good they get a little break from time to time. Speaking of break. Mine is over, I better get at that cleaning..
