Man it's been a long time. I feel so guilty because I really haven't done much of anything with either of my horses. They are both filthy and wooly and getting fat. That clinic was the last time I worked Rain before yesterday. I feel awful because Rain is the type of horse that thrives on work. She is much calmer and level headed when she gets to do something physical and mental. Sublime isn't a huge fan of working, but he totally needs it because the less he is worked the more pushy and rude he gets. Which no one needs at this point. I've just been so lazy lately, or other stuff has taken up my time. It seems like I have 100 excuses as to why I can't work my horses. Let's be real... they are just excuses. My pregnancy doesn't hinder me a whole lot right now. Although, I don't think I'd feel comfortable riding right now and I do get out of breath a lot faster than usual, but I can still long line and do in hand work. So yesterday I forced myself to go long line them both. I was pleasantly surprised that they both didn't act like complete fools. Rain got to work and gave me some really nice passes. Since it had been a while I let her tootle along with her head where she wanted. I'm kind of afraid she has some metabolic thing going on. She has fat pads on either side of her tail, but isn't overweight in general. She also drinks a lot of water.... like a lot. So I'm thinking I need to get the vet out for her. Sublime likes to act like a good boy, and then he'll get a wild streak and give a few jumps and then he gets back to work again. That happened a few times, but he always does that when he hasn't been worked in a long time. If I was more consistent with him he wouldn't do that. I was soooo pleased that he gave me the nicest little canters though. This was probably the first time since he had his injury last year that he didn't hesitate or get rushy or anxious when going into the canter. I think all this time off has done him some good. I'm so excited to get him into training for a couple months next year. No pictures. They look nasty and unkempt. I tried to clean them up as good as I could yesterday, but all the currying made me get out of breath and I got a nasty cramp on my tummy so I had to stop. Maybe today I can work on getting them a little cleaner and take some cute pics.
