We've had an ever changing routine since Koda & Nemo came home a few weeks ago. One that is not conducive to riding. Weather is changing, we are rapidly loosing daylight. Work is busier then ever, with both of ours experiencing change of it's own. Harmony's injury care changes things up, and even the resident equine turn-out situation has changed again. It's all part of life. Fall just seems to bring it on full force, and you feel it more.
In regards to the resident equine turnout, the girls felt it was unfair for our four horses to be put in the arena while their horse and pony got turned-out in the pasture. They think Old Man should get turned out in the arena. Fine with us, it's in our favor. The way the girls see it, it's one vs four. I think they also want Resident Pony to be turned out with our herd, they love our horses and so does the pony. The five of them are a happy bunch. In fact, Resident Pony is the only one Nemo allows eating right next to him at the hay bunk. She is so persistent. I think Nemo gave up a long time ago, and allows her into his space. So far this turnout routine has worked out better, less musical horse. Other then threatening gestures, there has been no additional altercation. Good thing too, Nemo is still healing.
We've only ridden once, in over two weeks. Makes me sad not to ride, especially when the weather is pretty decent. I miss it. I called our Frainer Patty at Iron Horse, it's time to start trailering. Too far to do often, but a scheduled ride is just that. Setting aside time to do what you love is important. We headed up there this weekend! Post to come.
Among the changing routine, are familiar sights that carry us through...
