Blue Skies and a Red Pony
It was a peaceful day today, crunchy snow under Dani's hooves as we walked around the property. I love the simple ride around the 65 acres, we can see for miles and it was so pretty today.
It was just a touch chilly but gloves and a fleece were all I needed. Dani was a good girl and I mounted with a mounting block with no issues. She didn't step away like she has in the past. Been ages since we used a mounting block.
I can't say enough about how peaceful it was just to go ride for a couple hours. I groomed her and loved on her and then treated her hooves which had some flaking from the wet/dry weather. Not only is she cute to look at but she's so darn funny. I gave her a peppermint treat and then later while looking for another she nibble my jacket zipper.
I feel so lucky to have such a wonderful little horse to call my own. I needed my barn time today and was glad we didn't have too many xmas eve chores to conduct. Tomorrow I'll be busy from morning until evening with family so I won't see my girl. At least we got some quality time in with a nice leisurely ride.
Mare-ee Christmas everyone!
