Two amazing days!

Friends, I have so much to tell you – I don’t even think you’ll believe it!

I may not have mentioned this before, but my Daddy’s best friend, Rob, just moved here to Tennessee. So – needless to say – I made a new friend! Well, technically he’s more like my uncle – my Daddy called him my Uncle Rob – but regardless, I LOVE meeting new people and making new friends!

Anyway, since I’d worked so hard the day before, my Mommy rode me bareback and let me have a light workout, just to stretch out and get my blood flowing.

Mommy and I had a lot of fun riding bareback!

Daddy even hopped on my back for a little while, and we had a lot of fun, too.

I love working with my Daddy!

Today, though, I knew it was going to be a big day. How did I know, you ask? Well, because Mommy and Daddy each gave me marshmallows before I worked… And you know what marshmallows mean!! That’s right – JUMPING DAY!

My Daddy is so silly! I love him! And I LOVE marshmallows!

I had such an amazing workout! It was so much fun, too! Of course, we warmed up nice and slow on the flat before Mommy started warming me up over jumps, and then Daddy and Uncle Rob came into the arena to watch. Daddy raised the jumps up for us as soon as we were ready, and we ended up jumping an oxer set to 4’4, and a vertical set to 4’9!

Mommy was so proud of me and so excited that I did SUCH a great job… that she even let me gallop around the arena!

Woo hoo!

Woo hoo!

When I was all finished and cooled down completely, Mommy gave me a warm  bath with liniment and herbal shampoo, and then I got to go back out into the paddock with my best friend, Leo! It was the perfect day!

I’ll get tomorrow off, but Mommy said that she’d be there in the morning anyway, just to hang out with me and love on me and groom me, like she does every Sunday.

For now, though, I think I’m going to go eat my night hay and then get some shut-eye. Catch y’all tomorrow, friends!
