Not much to say , I did ride both Cat and Andee this weekend and both went well, though Cat did show me just a little "Appytude" with her "angry face" no other resistance to speak of ,just a little grumpy.I take it we will get though stuff like that just fine . Because either all these years with Appys or just because , I have a little "appytude' myself!
And then there is Andee, soft and just looking for the sweet spot . She is a very sensitive girl, and a pleasure to work with
the rest of the weekend went well, I worked on Cactus then Sunday dragged Deb up to Barrhead to the rodeo with me . Watched my cousin rope and had a nice visit with family. Then home to chores and a quiet evening .
I took a few pictures over the last couple of days . I have been trying to get a few more good ones of Quinn, these are,while pretty enough not really well lit for adds. Not sure if these would help or hinder the add.But they are pretty so...
This next picture is a lesson in what NOT to do , I was wrapping Cactus' leg and my back got sore so I took a seat . And while Cactus is a rock and a really steady guy, I sure would never suggest this to anyone.A lot of ways it could have gone wrong. But as I said on FB it brings to mind a conversation from years ago, about stallions and how they just get mean as they get older. Some do maybe , but if they are taught respect and trust , you get that back .
Oddly I did not get hurt doing that, but later in the weekend , while forking hay ,managed to stab myself in the knee with the fork! Seriously I have no idea how,I couldn't do it again on a bet! (nor would I want to for that matter) Yup that's me , you can call me a lot of things, Sherry, Share Bear, Fern Valley , but I can guaran -darn -tee you , NOBODY has ever called me Grace!
The knee isn't bad, just scraped the skin and bruised more than anything .
This last 2 are just because ,like the tile of the post , I was walking in from chores and the way the sun was over the trees ,and peeking through the clouds ,I thought is was just beautiful !
Like a window to Heaven
Hope everyone had a great weekend .
And as always, do what I say not what I do, stay safe!
