It was actually a beautiful day, not too cold, only about 26 and bright and sunny so my roomie and I went to the barn and took the dogs along. I've been missing Possum and feeling like I've been a bad horse mom. I let him out loose to roam and eat scraps while I ate my breakfast and then tacked him up and brought him down to the indoor. He was really good. He recently got his teeth floated a couple weeks ago and was feeling really soft. We went through our walk trot and canter warm-ups and he was really good. He asn't too hyper so it was nice to work on some softening and collection. The ring was a little busy because of all of the lessons so my roomie and I decided to take the horses down the dirt road to cool out and get out of the ring.
It was so beautiful and the snow was sparkling in the sun. We decided to venture off the road and onto a snowmobile trail. We did some trotting and it was so nice and the horses had an extra spring in their step. The horses also got a good work out going through the snow. After we got back to the barn we were greeted by the pack of dogs all welcoming us back to the barn. I untacked Possum and gave him a good grooming and then mixed up his treat of bran, oats and dried apples inhot water. He gobbled it up and then I let him loose again to munch on hay while I watched a lesson finishing up. It was good to see my guy again and he looked good. I think he's enjoying having most of the winter off. Tomorrow I'm gonna ride again because the weather is so nice during the day. Only 48 more days till spring!!! or mud season as we Mainers call it.
Greg has been busy helping and visiting his family today. He has a dinner tonight for local business owners and we might get together later tonight to watch movies or something. He did say to my on the phone today that he missed me which felt nice. So the dogs and I are relaxing now. I'm watching a horse TV show and their all snoozing. Hopefully check back in tomorrow after riding.
