Well, friends, it’s been a while since I’ve written, and I’m sorry about that. It’s been cold and rainy the past few days, and I haven’t exactly been in the mood to write. You see, I was stuck in the little paddocks for the last two days, and you know how much I hate being in the little paddocks. I did get to go into the big back field with Leo today, though.
Yesterday, I got to see my friend, Mary. Remember my Mommy’s cousin? She came out a couple weeks ago to watch me jump.
Well, she came out again yesterday to watch me work and to spend time with Mommy. I didn’t jump yesterday – it was too cold, and I’d had the day before off – but I do love to see my friends! And I love showing off!
So, anyway, today was jumping day. I had a lot of energy… and the cold, windy weather was making me feel a little bit feisty! Mommy was planning on jumping me over the same half-course at about 3’6 or 3’9, but we only ended up jumping as high as 3’3 because I was just feeling too silly. I couldn’t help it! It’s not my fault!
We ended up having a really hard workout; Mommy made me collect my canter to all of the jumps, which is tough when they start getting higher than 3′ or so.
After a while, I decided to behave and try my hardest… and when I was done, Daddy gave me some of his peanut butter sandwich as a reward! All in all, it was a pretty good day. Mommy said I have to work on more flatwork tomorrow, and if I’m absolutely perfect, I may get to jump again… and a little bit higher. But I guess we’ll see!
Alright, friends. I’m off to eat my hay. Stay warm tonight! Catch y’all tomorrow.
