Have to pick that stuff up before the County comes along with their shredders--they just run over everything! Can you imagine the mess a shredded cushion would make??Marsha,
I would love to see a sofa cushion on the back of a mini! Lol
Feeling inspired! Thanks.
That's great Marsha! The stand is so important and really takes a lot of patience to teach. You two are doing really well.Nice drive with Midnight today. We went early while the weather was nice. She did very well. My toes didn't curl when we passed cows, but some scary piles of weeds from the road grader caused a reaction. We spent time chatting with two neighbors and she stands so nicely.
Oh my goodness. That's terrible. We are the opposite here, for a change. Wind chill of 31 and rain. Wouldn't you know I clipped Dapper Dan last week? I put his blanket on him this morning. Very weird September for us.We are covered in ash again, it's hot and the air is filled with smoke and the wind is gusting! Hoping for some improvement in the air quality tomorrow. The horses can go out but are choosing to stay in it's so miserable!
Thank you Charlottein. Wow snow already?!! We have such a long summer season here it is hard to imagine. Still in the 90's here. Normally we don't get any rain in September or even until the very end of October but you never know, it has been such a strange year.Oh gosh, I really hope you get some rain. We had terrible fires here in Colorado this year, but luckily the snow last week finally got them under control. We had orange skies as well and ash on our cars all the way in Denver. We only got to drive once this week today, as work was really busy and with the snow and rain. Chaos did great, but our weanling is still upset every time she is left alone, understandably. My trainer suggested having the filly come along some time, but I am not yet confident enough for that. Have any of you taken young ones along, and any suggestions?
Yep, they are more interested in getting solar on every rooftop and electric cars in every garage. The county also made sure we put fire sprinklers in our house, but they don't manage the forests and just blame everything on climate change.My son, a certified arborist, said this would happen in California. There is a beetle killing trees and all those dying trees are fire danger. Poor management of forests. It is a difficult situation, managing those areas with so many homes, tourists and towns now. And corporations and government agencies react instead of acting. Heartbreaking and terrifying.
We had a lot of fire danger several years ago by us during a drought, and we still get nervous when we smell smoke anywhere. I had my horses loaded in the trailer one day when there was fire across the road in open land.
Oh great! How old was Zorro? I don't want to push and tire her out. Echo is very well halter trained, she is a pro at walks with us luckily. So did you just tie to the back or hold the lead? The trainer suggested tying to the side to the hold back D ring so she could watch and learn. Want to make sure we are being safe for sure...I used to pony Zorro off the back of the cart when I drove his mama.
When I pony, I cross tie, a lead attached to each side of the seat, so she cannot get up beside the wheel. I've tried holding the lead and that doesn't work. Just go slow at first until she gets the hang of it. This is assuming that your mare is an experienced driving horse.Oh great! How old was Zorro? I don't want to push and tire her out.
