Well, I got to work yesterday, but only for about twenty minutes. Mommy rode me bareback and I’m embarrassed to say that I wasn’t very well behaved. In my own defense, it’s always difficult for me to behave when I have to work first thing in the morning, especially when my other friends are all headed out to the paddocks! I was trying my best to concentrate, but I just kept getting a little carried away…
Instead of making me work longer, Mommy decided that she wouldn’t push me to work when I wasn’t in the right mindset. (Have I told you how much I love her?) So, once we had warmed up, she asked me to pay attention long enough to do a few nice lead changes, and then she gave me a pat on the shoulder and told me I could be done.
But… even though I didn’t want to work, I still had a lot of energy… so I ended up going for a long gallop in the field later in the day. Leo even joined me this time! Unfortunately, my timing was terrible, and the gallop took place just before Daddy was going to bring us in for our dinner grain. So, needless to say, he had to walk me for twenty minutes until I cooled down, and then I had to wait an extra hour for my dinner.
Today, Mommy said that Daddy will ride me later if the weather holds up. It rained last night, and everything is pretty wet, but if it doesn’t rain anymore today then I think the arena will be just fine for riding. I guess we’ll see. Either way, I’ll let you know! I hope it doesn’t rain, because I love it when my Daddy rides me!
Alright, friends, I’m out of here. I see Daddy coming this way with some hay for us, so I’m going to go stand by the gate and wait for him. Maybe if I look extra cute, he’ll give me extra hay! Catch y’all later!
