Now, please know, I have no fucking clue how to long line. I mean I "get" it, but I don't know how to do what I get, if you know what I mean. So, it was kind of another Laurel and Hardy moment where I was untangling the lines, and trying to figure out how to run them thru the irons, and how to attach them, and why the hell are they so long???????? So, off we went. I wish I had pics, because I am sure there were moments that might have made the epic fail blog, of which (in my dreams) I am often the lead story.
Reason might have been the poster child for a well raised horse. Kind of like my daughter. Made me look good. He was...well, not just good but Tony-the-Tiger great. And then...as seems to be my way these days, I of course thought...
"hmmm, that went well. I had better get on him- just so he remembers his(eventual)job."
So I did. Outside. Using the Rock. With a PITA JRT underfoot.
I might not be the sharpest pencil in the box (mixing metaphors I know... but this thought deserves as many as possible.) at times. I guess, however, that I am lucky sometimes and with Reason that has indeed been the case.
So, on I go. And I say...Walk on! And he does. Remember 3 days ago when he only would back up, trying to get his head at my shoulder?? Well, that was not today! So I decided that since that went well, we might walk down the drive way. I don't know how to upload to youtube- but I have a link to my FB page where I have some of the video posted.
Hope that works!! If it does, here is another....
I actually got everyone ridden today... Tahoe was good, Wrainthur was good,
although we did take a rather unintended spin in the woods due to a strange
piece of something that he has seen at least 100 times.
So, hopefully more tomorrow!
