As we conclude February I’m pleased with the amount of winter trail riding Mara and I enjoyed. Today Melodee, Char and I had a ride down a “neighborhood” road that was new and different for us, providing a solid conclusion to the month.
Before heading off on our ride this afternoon Mara engaged 7 and 1/2 month old Wesley and his mom Lauren who were visiting from Vermont. Mara’s sweet friendly nature shined and who knows, Wesley may grow up to be a cowboy.
Jay and Mara B had bonding time today! Jay is practicing his horsemanship skills and Mara B is a very patient partner. Cowboy time is good for Jay and “blissful” for Ms Mara.
Today Mara was wet from the fresh snow, so we simply had snack time. Although yesterday Mara B investigated the UPS truck! Many vehicles pass directly by her paddock each day. So to say hi in person to the UPS truck and driver was special.
Maple trees are being tapped in the woods near the stable, and it was interesting to see this new addition to the landscape this afternoon. Today’s ride was to the Meyer Farm for another change of direction. We appreciated the outing, since the weather forecast is predicting heavy snow overnight.
