four words

hot, muggy, wet, buggy

Four words describing the conditions that prevented us from riding
last week. Finally got back in the saddle last night. I could really tell it had been a long time. Not sure who was happier, us or the boys?

Brad also started lunging Harmony after we ride, to keep her limber. They are figuring each other out, and she seems to enjoy it. Nemo on the other hand watches his human’s every move with **gasp** another horse. He is handling it well, and gets extra love from me while they are busy. It’s not the same, but he suffers and takes what he can get. He is such a sweetheart. Nemo knows he has to share his Brad, but he doesn't have to like it. He just patiently waits and watches.


On another note, I finished the ground poles! Won’t win any awards, but they’ll work just fine for our purpose. I ended up painting 19” bands of red. Painting 8 poles took much longer than I expected. If I had it to do over again I would sand the poles first, and use better tape. However, I’m pretty sure our horses don’t care either way.

Yes those are very descriptive and accurate terms for this weather - except we've not had any rain, just all humidity. Ick!

I finally rode last night too =)

We have been having crasp weather as well , Oh well could be worse I guess. Johnnie is a bit like Nemo , wants mew all to himself and will stare down any other horse that dares to want my attention

I like the poles as much as Nemo seems too. Good job!
