Mom stayed inside most of the time I think.
I took a nice long ride on Bannie. I've been working on getting him to go into the canter when I kiss and he's been doing well. There is a culvert bridge over the creek and just on the other side, a steep hill. I took him to the bottom of the hill, dropped the reins and kissed. Whoooeee! He layed his ears back and took off! His mane was flying back in my face as I lay over the saddle horn. I whooped to him a few times and he really got going! Up the hill, around a few curves and out into a small meadow that borders the road. Just as we came tearing out of the woods, a car was going down the road. I ran Bannie right at the fence. The poor guy probably thought I was going over it! At the last minute I turned Bannie and we cantered along the fence. We did that about four times! There is nothing in the world like running up a hill, the wind in your face, mane blowing past you and feeling the rippling muscles and amazing power beneath you. The majestic beauty of the running horse, throwing his strength into every stride is the most wonderful thing to see in the whole world! I'm going to try to get a video of it soon.
We have someone coming to look at Sunny tomorrow. She has been foundering and since Levi got Smoke he doesn't need her anymore and she is too much for Lydia to handle. So we'll sell her and try to find something that everyone can ride.
So that's what we've been doing around here!
