|Sunday morning's drive to the barn was foggy and frosty.|
On that ride with the Bombers bit I had some really good moments on our stronger right lead canter of him reaching down and forward. The left lead - I think we had a couple of strides I was happy with? It's the weaker side for both of us, unfortunately. This is the side that evasions are easier for him. Our first canter was overflexed to the inside. I thought about keeping his head and neck straighter for the second canter, which meant he flexed to the outside, couldn't steer, and wanted to stop (a dressage whip doesn't work over a riding skirt fyi). The third canter was just crap and resistant all round. The left side will definitely be our bogey side for a long while.
|Foggy and frosty also applied to forelocks.|
The mice that chewed a hole in my saddle pad seem to have left my tack locker - no new raisins have been spotted - but moved into someone else's locker. I only feel a little bit bad. A really little bit.
And my Pixio robot is on it's way to France for repairs. It wasn't cheap to send, but hopefully, I will be reimbursed most of the cost. It's estimated to be delivered on Feb 4th, and then they said it will be fixed within 7 business days, so I'm hoping to have it back in my hand the third week of February. And hopefully, it works properly this time.
Crazy (but pretty) fog!! Sierra tends to cough in the winter when she's on a roundbale. I have had really good luck with Herbacoff!ReplyDelete
I didn't have any luck with the cough syrup types of things unfortunately. The Ventipulmin works well, but it is expensive and a steroid. She only gets it when I ride though, so maybe three times a week.Delete
I love the look of the icy fog! Makes for great pics... :-) Good that you are getting some rides in when it is so cold.ReplyDelete
Now I have to figure out how to keep my toes warm - they froze last night! But the rest of me was toasty!Delete
