It has been a reasonably good day today. We had a visit from our friend Pepper and her Grandma who is 96 years old. Pepper is the lady that looks after a few of our horses in the summer and owns one of the mares we bred. She came over to help me with Wiggle in case I ran into problems with trying her out with saddle and riding her. Well I am happy to report that Wiggle was an absolute star. She still has a lot of weight to put on but she was so good, did her darndest to make me happy. She is such a beautiful filly, it is going to be even harder to part with her now because she was so calm. It is however very apparant that the trainer did very little with her as far as riding goes because she didnt respond well to my leg pressure or even trying to steer her with the reins. If she had been ridden on trails and doing barrel patterns by a 12 year old then I dont know because she was certainly not familiar with what I was asking her to do. I didnt do more than walk her a bit and she was in my pocket when I got off of her. I am so proud of her. I want her to put more weight on before I ask her for any more effort.
So as you will see there are a few shots of her and I from this afternoon taken by Pepper. I really look like an old hag LOL, I should have thought that I would look this bad and at least tried to tart myself up a bit LOL. So please forgive my appearance, I am normally on the other side of the lens.
I will be taking up to date pictures of Taxes tomorrow and will post some more of him soon. He is growing like a weed.
Still trying to catch up on all the work. (((((Hugs)))))) for everyone and just to let you know Larry is doing well. I dont think that he is back to 100% of his prior self but he is feeling a lot better and hopefully will heal and be back to normal soon.
Have a great Monday.
