Winslow has just joined our paddock and it was entertaining to watch Gus welcome him to the herd, there was plenty of horse play going on. Mara B just ignored them and enjoyed the round bale. Our ride this morning took us through the back corn field which was a refreshing outing. Another day of mild temps to enjoy as our January thaw continues. It’s great to be riding “out.”
We had a wonderful afternoon snow ride in borrowed Bling this afternoon! The mystery of Mara’s missing bridle has not yet been solved, so Nena let us borrow one of her bridles. Mara B has never been so fancy! It was a treat for us both to have an outside loop around the hay field. Loving our January thaw.
Mara B and I enjoyed some ride time in the indoor arena with Barn friends this afternoon, and it’s been a while since we have had riding time. Horses, riders, and having a few jumps set up all contributed to active and fun arena time for us. Mara does love her people interaction time too. However I misplaced her bridle after our ride and will need to find that ASAP.
When I arrived at the barn today, Mara B was warm in the winter sunshine as she snoozed in the snow. The temperature was seven degrees! Mara was very relaxed and really didn’t feel much like getting up. We did however venture into the Barn and indoor arena for our routine of excercising, grooming and Mara having a bite to eat, our time was low key, calm and relaxed. We also checked on the pasture horses to see what they were doing, which was not much.
Mara braced herself against the invigorating brisk wind walking in to the barn this afternoon! Once in the indoor arena however, she was frisky and full of energetic action, Mara wanted to play and move. Her paddock is icy, snowy and rock hard, so the footing in the indoor arena is a welcome change. We’ve been stopping by to visit the pasture horses on the way back to her paddock and she loves to greet Jack.
