Short and sweet is what he is , and what it was
Finally ,today after having , not time , no motivation , poor weather etc.I decided enough already and GOT ON MY HORSE !
Today esp , was a day to do it , as we had some tears yesterday saying goodbye to a sweet horse Deb's Blue has moved on to greener pastures , I will write an honorable mention about him, soon , because that sweet beautiful boy more than deserves it ,but for now I will just say ,from me to him,"Good night Sweet Prince " (my personal pet name for him for his whole life)
Got up this morning , and even though it was going to be hot ,I threw on my jeans, thinking Deb would be over for a ride , to dry her eyes and clear her head. She was , but much later in the day,I had assumed she wasn't wanting to go ,and put on shorts. My back and well, whole darn body has been sore so I had talked myself out of it .
Mentioned it when she got here, and she said , she did want to go after all . At first I kinda though ah, next time , but Brian kindly offered to help get my gear out , so away went ! Just a short ride ,a s I am sore and Johnnie is well , um, a little plus sized these days himself ( as am I ) so start small right ?
Be gentle with me, we are just proving that round is in fact a shape!
As always ,I am reminded how much I love this little horse of mine. In from the pasture , saddled up, put him in the round pen just to see and he looked at me as if to say "Seriously?OK I will run in a circle and show you that I know what I am doing , then can we just GO?"
Didn't need the round pen today anymore than I would need it any other time .Silly me .At least in Johnnies case , broke is broke , and he never changes .
You may notice Deb is wearing a helmet, I have been a die hard for a long time , but here I am ending every post with stay safe , and ...
Talked about it thought about it , now it is time to just step up and do it !
Anyway , Stay safe , hope it was a great weekend all round!
