Sunny and Thunder didn't lack for attention while I was gone. My folks kindly took over the evening check & fly spray routine, and provided status reports.
I've been toying with doing this weekend's open show in Sioux Falls with Sunny, but I'm not sure we've had enough saddle time lately. I rode Monday and could definitely tell Sunny'd had a break.
|Attention definitely not on me|
Every time we passed by that side of the field Sunny wanted to turn into a counterbent U so he could gawk.
I rode for about 40 minutes, working on bending and softness and did plenty of big circles and spirals through all three gaits. Not much canter, but enough to pick up and hold both lead. Pudgy as he is, Sunny was sweaty - so was I - it was hot! - but not puffing when we finished.
Mom hopped on for a few minutes, too and I got to catch her on camera for a change! LOL!
