Tumbleweed and Paddy are growin' like weeds!!! They're best pals of course and enjoy each other's company. They've also found the barn where they can get inside out of the elements without the cows coming in and laying on them...they love the barn!
Paddy's got her milk face goin'!
(yes, that's a dusting of snow on the ground)
Well, I've got to admit I've been a bad horse mom and that I've hardly ridden Colt this year (2012), and I've got lots of training to get done on him...my Mike Bridges clinic is less than a month away.
This Thursday I'll be sorting pairs with him for the 3J Ranch and Saturday we've been invited to a branding...not only does Colt need to get going, but so do I!! I'm out of shape as well !
|Rompin' in the sunrise...Gus and Colt are havin' a lil' bit of horse play!|
I've also got soooooooooooo much work to do with Gus if I'm going to have him ready for the sale in July. Gus hasn't had anything done with him since last fall. Yesterday, I got him up to the barn, hobbled him while I brushed and saddled him, worked him in the round pen and then worked him on the circus pole....he did really good considering the amount of time he's had off. I was pleased, and I expect to be in the saddle today.

Of course the winter coats are coming off thick right now, and everyone is getting at least the shedding blade taken to them. My ol' man Toby had enough hair for two horses! The hair's flyin' everywhere!
I'm going to enjoy the sunshine, mild temps and the tiny bit of wind today...that all changes tonight as we prepare for more snow and cold.
Enjoy your day!!
