Leo and Tag

Leo was very happy to come in from the mud we are experiencing today and he was also hitting me up big time for cookies.  I groomed him and tacked up and we headed down the road while the sun was still out.

The footing on the road down the the river was by turns muddy and almost icy, but no problem for Mr. Surefoot.  We walked down and trotted back up.

Then we trotted and cantered over to the cemetery, which he enjoyed very much.

Heading home just as the sun goes down.

Tag came in with pretty muddy legs so I cracked out the hose and hosed them off.  It was about 50 degrees, which felt warm to us all.  At least he will get to have clean legs for the overnight and tomorrow the mud should start to dry up.  I rode him in the indoor with Kelly and Elsa.  We did a lot of walking to warm up and then a lot of stretching in trot and then on to canter, in which he was a little fresh to start out.  I let him have a bit of a play and then we got down to work and he did very well!
