I’ve got Rolex streaming on the tv but, to be honest, it’s not making me feel much better (though it is inspiring). Dandy was a complete ass the other day. When I asked him to walk around the outdoor he gave me a huge middle finger and went up on his back feet. This wasn’t like last time where he was frustrated and didn’t understand what I wanted, only doing a little hop. This was a full on ‘eff you.’ So he got his butt kicked into gear on the lunge line and I did get back on and walk him around the arena. The only problem is now I’m scared and upset and I don’t even want to go see him today.
So I’m not going to. He can take a day off and so can I.
Instead enjoy some recent videos and pictures of the pups!
In other (happy) news: I just sent in the registration for my very first horse trial! It’s a one day event put on by the Baywood Pony Club at the Northwest Equestrian Center. It’s on the 18th of May so I’ll have three weeks to prepare us for it.
We’re doing the “hopeful” division with a max of 2′ on the jumps. Dandy’s going to be annoyed at the lack of height but I really want to get him out at a show and go through a little event before I tackle a BN course. He was so naughty at his first jumping show but an angel at the dressage schooling show last fall so I really don’t know what to expect from him. Though after yesterday I almost decided to scratch. Still, I think this will be a really good experience for the both of us. I am sort of excited. Hopefully that grows in the next few weeks.
