..it obviously means you need to make lemon bars!
But, contrary to the whole “lemon” thing, things have been pretty good so far. The Hubs and I are moved into our new home and now we just a
ton few boxes left to open up so we can actually park our cars in the garage. My goal is to have the cars in by the end of the month, eek!
On the horsie front, I decided to try moving Spot to the barn down the road from the new house. As some of you might have remembered, Spot got pretty beat up in the pasture we tried her in. This time, we tried her in another pasture group with 2 very playful geldings that seriously act like they’re teenage boys. When we got her to the new place, I locked her in her stall/run area so she could meet Bowie and Denali over the fence for a few days. The boys were very curious about her and according to their owners (Denali is owned by my trainer), they love mares.
Spot on the other hand, is kind of a standoffish, independent horse and doesn’t really care for playing or socializing. I think it comes from her polo background as she’s all about being serious and work so it was going to be interesting to see how she would handle it. Over the next few days the BO kept an eye on the 3 and said he only heard squealing once or twice when the boys would go over and visit which was much better than the last time. The Hubs finally convinced me after about 4 days to turn Spot out to pasture with Bowie and Denali and that Spot was going to be just fine. With bated breath, I opened up her run door and out she went as happy as a clam since she had been locked up the last few days. Once the boys realized she was out there was a bunch of running around with Spot being her sassy self because boys are gross and smell. 😛 Long story short, they’ve settled in pretty well together and I’m glad she is able to be out 24×7. Poor Denali though…he’s like a puppy and is always trying to go over and nuzzle/play with Spot but she kinda pins her ears and trots away like “Eww!”
I’ve gotten to ride Spot in arena a few times and it’s been fabulous. We’ve actually have made some amazing progress as we were going through a difficult learning curve trying to get Spot to be more consistently round. But, more on that a bit later when I can get some video and pictures!
Hope ya’ll had a great weekend and if anyone wants the recipe for the lemon bars let me know. 🙂
