Yesterday the rain stopped long enough for me to get a ride in on Roscoe. The first in about 3 weeks. He was awesome and showed the ground/lunge work we have done is transferring. Roscoe is moving along. We ended going over some poles. He has a huge stride, I think I will have to stretch them next time. When I hopped off, I found he got a bit sweaty after only a short bit of work. Someone may be in line for a trace clip if this weather keeps up. So we walked around the arena. He follows me, giving space and still listening. I laughed and jogged over the poles. My super pony trotted over them right behind me. Roscoe and I may never be show super stars, but where ever we end up, it will be a damn fun journey to get there.
Then to cap off the day, I came home to find my Blogger Gift waiting in my room. Tracy's Gift Exchange is so great because I get to know new bloggers. This year both sides were new for me. I opened my box to see that Rhiannon from The Horse is not Black sent a box full. Have to say I was super impressed that all the gifts were wrapped and labeled.
The first gift I opened revealed a pair of awesome socks. Absolutely me! When I showed them to Peggy, she asked if I mentioned my antisocial nature. I definitely prefer animals to people :)
The next gift came in a really cute bear topped box. Inside was bling for all three Cobs in the form of dragon bridle charms. Very cool! I can put these on riding or driving bridles.
Next came gifts for the ponies from her her two, Dexter and Sassy.
Plus treats for me. I already know the pony treats are approved since we have used the Purina Apple treats for years, though they were called Dobbins Delight before and I recently purchased the Standlee Apple Berry Cookie Cubes to use for my own Blogger gift and my horses. The horse world can be so small sometimes.
I hope everyone has a great holiday!b
