Also at the barn of Warmbloods is a large Thoroughbred. He is the sweetest, sweetest old man (I think he's 15?) He is in the pasture with 3 of the other large warmbloods and there is one who always comes barreling towards me when it's time to come in for dinner. Every single time this big boy, we'll call him Briar, steps in between us and pins his ears at the Warmblood. It almost seems like he's trying to protect me. He doesn't care when he goes in, but he sure does make sure that I'm safe. Turns out he has absentee parents. He's been at the barn since before this trainer moved in, and I guess they never come see him. I asked if I could clean Briar up and love on him. I'm excited to have a pony to go visit there, the trainer said it would be fine, and he's probably love the attention.
Back at the ranch, Ms. Denali is doing well. Not testing the fence, and hanging out enjoying the sunshine. She's become obsessed with me and will nicker and nicker and nicker when she sees me. It use to be cute....now super annoying!
Had a good ride on the Morgan tonight, worked on bending and getting her to loosen up. She is really stiff, and it is going to take some work, but even after 30 minutes, she was moving better. We're going to a dressage show this Saturday doing Intro A and Intro B. I hope we can have as good of a ride this weekend as we did last weekend. I don't ever expect to come in 1st place, but I do enjoy having a great ride!
