Snow, Ice and Wind
I was very happy that my long weekend actually had decent winter weather. Saturday was warm enough for Steve to come out and work on the wiring in the tack room. I rode Dani around the property in areas that were less muddy or snowy. We stayed at a walk since the ground was slippery in spots.
Dani always gets excited to see Steve. He's a new toy that lets her get away with things and gives her more treats than I do! LOL. The following Sunday Steve was at work and I headed to the barn. The winds were horrendous and I wasn't in the mood to fight with putting the saddle blanket on or having to deal with the muddy riding areas and a potentially spooky mare. She's not really spooky by any means but I don't like wind myself.
Instead we went into the barn and I gave her a really nice grooming and worked more Manely Long Hair product into her mane. I'm liking this product. It keeps her mane much more manageable and hopefully less breakage. I rarely use it on her tail since that hair is pretty strong and long; I've had to trim it several times since I've owned her. Not a bad thing. After a nice pony grooming session I hugged her and headed back home. Two days of pony fun in a row! I can't wait until the weather and time change happens so I can get out there more!
