The temperatures are climbing higher every day but there’s still work to be done, critter or human. Be you curvy pony or enterprising dachshund, there’s a task for you.
First time being caught in a while, Apache had a serious life question to consider
To Be or Not to Be With Human
As the husband intoned from across the early a.m. pastures: “He Chose…Wisely.”
I discovered my round pen had regrown it’s star thistle army working on the line in the arena it was
Apache’s current task: breathing, giving at the poll, and all things associated with or helpful to that enterprise
Rushcreek Aurora’s full time job: Training Assistant/PITA Creeper
seconds before this photo she had 3 coils of lunge line crammed down her gullet..
can’t you almost hear the innocent casual whistling?
the bantams work at composting
at least 2 are now crowing, or some version of it
dachshund fish finders never run out of batteries and rarely err
After the human did her job of clearing the round pen again..
Sheza’s job: eye candy, and storytelling
Huhhh, human is still here, hello again
not ready, noNoBLARG!
huh, it’s hot..and human doesn’t object to this speed, maybe this is a better speed
oh yeah, slower is better, hmmphh, I’m fat, I’m sweaty, Humannnn I’m done
(human must not let herself be convinced by filly. Human is boss!ish..)
a nice, slow, low, working trot compromise, tongue out and all
A few more nice circuits at an ever slower and bendier walk, dragging the long line around in the rustling grass, and that was that for Sheza’s story this morning. Oh, and a cool bath, as a princess must have.
And the rest?
Spark is having a few days off after WW, with one ride to be done between now and Gold Country 50 in 2 weeks.
Blaze, Desire, and Napoleon can’t claim to be any more useful than endearing old friends, at the moment.
dear old Georgia crew chihuahua is hanging in there, for now. She loves the hot weather fortunately
A fellow blogger mare will be moving in soon to mix things up!
