Hacking

All the ponies survived the 1.8 inches or rain we rec’d just fine. They shared the run in like a Girl Scout troop. I rode Nellie first today in the indoor because I wanted to continue work on the things we had discussed yesterday. He was a bit more flexible today and is coming along nicely. Some good lateral work. The canter went well.

After I was done with Nellie, Megan Righi did a little beauty shop on him. I may have directed her to cut his tail too short. Whoops. It isn’t Rick Hickman and General short, but it is about 4 inches shorter than I meant to say. I take full responsibility. She did exactly what I said. It actually looks kinds cute in a bobtail way.

Then Megan rode Dallas and I rode JJ, with Jay on Elliot and Magee on Sammy for about a 4 mile walk hack. Despite the fact that we only walked, they all worked up a light sweat. Everybody had a good workout and a good time.

Meanwhile, their bridles need some attention. As Jeff and I talked about, the bridles need new tags. I suggest the flat type, which I find stay attached better. Let me know if you want me to order them. The look like this:IMG_0005
