We've had a horsey weekend. Liz came out with us last evening to horse around. She rode Apollo and agreed that he is a changed horse. I got out somewhat early while Dean was taking the girls to the Little Gym. Apollo and I had a lesson and then goofed around with Brittany and Misty. We set up a little jump course and put our horses through their paces. It's kind of funny to watch, because all three horses LOVE to jump and tend to get a bit excited. Misty's new horse probably wins the prize, taking off about five feet early for a two foot jump. :) Apollo must have been tired because he was the most subdued of the bunch. Of course, he always makes us look good.
I spent a good couple of hours riding and by the time I got off, my legs were shaking. Apollo was barely sweating but I'd had the workout of the week. Hosed off the horse and took him for a little walk-about to say hi to friends at the ranch. I was ready to go when we left.
Went to Petsmart and picked up supplies. Cosette and the foal have been, well, eating like horses. We go through bags and bags of Mare & Foal. They are all getting wormed tomorrow- my favorite thing to do with the horses!
Anyhow, I need to go recuperate. I'm still weak and sickly but planning to go out again tomorrow for more of the same... so... best rest up.
