The weather and riding don’t mix…

   I thought I’d go for a ride this afternoon. While saddling up, Jerzey gets spooked by the barn door. The wind is crazy today. There are many objects being tossed about by the wind. She quickly regained her composure and stood quietly. It always makes me nervous to ride during a real windy day and this was no exception. I just couldn’t help it. I’ve been grounded long enough. It’s been such a friggin’ hot summer, none of us have gotten to much done in the way of horse backing.

   I’m not sure how long it has been since we last rode. I have it blogged somewhere here. Oh well, back to the subject at hand. After tacking up, Jerzey and I headed out towards the back pasture. Mouse, “like a puppy” was on our heels. You have to watch him closely. He walks so quietly, I don’t really notice him following on occasion, when all the sudden; I’m trying to keep him from following us through an open gate. What a pest! As usual, I caught him before he made a bee-line through the open gate and shooed him off. haha!Yesterday, the silly shit was following and darted through the gate as I was going back to the house. I tried to close the gate before he went through and he got caught on the post and skinned his side. Having to keep my appointment with nature before I watered the yard, I just let him alone. I didn’t care if he was in the yard, really. After taking care of business, I let Jerzey in and they grazed on the grass in the back yard.

This is such a nice mare. Hardly any trouble at all. The ocassional baulk or jump, but nothing major. “famous last words of a fool’ I know, but she is lovely none the less. I like her mane pulled. I got tired of looking at that scraggly thing yesterday and finely broke down and did it. Her mane is so thin, it just didn’t look good long.
