|I tossed on an old sheepskin-lined pad (after thinking longingly about the really nice bareback pad Amanda has) and our trusty Kensington sidepull.
|She needs her roach shaped in the worst way.
|It was a lovely, peaceful morning.
|We even wandered outside the arena! Ruby was on high alert here because there was a doe at the end of the pasture and we spooked her into running. Before that she had been moseying along on a loose rein.
|I tried to get a zoomed in shot, it's over her right ear. Not a great shot lol.
|Heading back up towards the house and the barn is a view that always makes my heart sing. I love it.
|We also walked down to the road (not on it, but to it).
|And down the sadly neglected pathway between our front paddock fence and the fence marking the property boundary on the road. She was great everywhere, no attempts to rush back to the barn (which we had a little trouble with a few years ago).
|Her dapples are still obscene, in case you were wondering.
|Trigger was apparently still exhausted from Monday night's efforts.
|MUCH TIRED. V SLEEPY. If you don't have alfalfa, go away.
|Ruby also enjoyed another nice snooze -- Cinna was down when I walked into the barn but when she heard me she popped up, so no good photos of her napping.
|Sam was also sleeping while I rode Ruby -- I tried to put this photo up near the riding photos but the new Blogger and I are not getting along yet.
|"Hay girl... no, seriously, I want more hay. Go get it."
Much like riding, I'm trying to get back into the habit of blogging regularly -- forgive me if some of the posts are mostly photos with long captions :) that's working pretty well for my brain right now, so I'm just trying to keep the momentum going!
