Jay and I had a fun visit with Mara B this afternoon. First on the agenda was to let her dash about in the outdoor arena!
Jay then provided her with his special comfort and grooming routine.
We liked playing with Fergi and Liz’s new indoor arena toy, and we observed the harvest work in the nearby fields.
A delightful fall Sunday for us enjoying Mara B and the barn.
Mara and I spent most of our connection time together in the indoor arena to stay out of the afternoon mist. Wagons of new bales of hay were also staying dry in the indoor arena again today. The fresh aroma was wonderful!
We did saddle up and ride circles in and out of the wagons as a little fun activity. Even played a little squeeze game.
Plus Mara B posed for a few photos next to the rustic wood siding of one of the hay wagons, that I liked.
So for an indoor day with ground work, ride time, grooming and Mara munching we had a change of pace day that was slow moving and enjoyable.
My visit with Mara this morning was to have time together before the rain arrived.
She came over to greet me! Then we had grooming and round pen exercise time.
When we saddled up, Mara “communicated” discomfort…. I am sensing that she’s still “off.” So we did not ride and plan to have a Vet check to figure things out.
Mara B was quite damp and muddy after showers last night so we had a very good grooming session today. She’s still on pain meds and we are not riding.
We appreciated Brutus staying close while he also enjoyed his own R&R break.
All is going smoothly and in the right direction as Mara continues to recover.
Time to change my boots! So today I switched from wearing winter boots to muck boots. Mara B and two of her pals were relaxing together when I arrived early this morning to beat a predicted late spring snow storm. Mara and I just had grooming and ground games in the indoor arena together and took the day “off” as a snow day! On our way back to her paddock we saw the pasture horses in their upper pasture hunkered down for the weather that’s supposedly on it’s way. Hopefully Mara B can hang on to her place in the shelter tonight.
