April 16, 2011

Gary headed over to the stables around 9:00 a.m. to work on the roof of the hay barn. Cindy had a nice "me" morning at home. She did the mundane things that we all put off when someone is around to distract us.

She headed over to the stables around noon and stopped and bought lunch (Subway) for she and Gary.

Gary took a break from the 25' ladder and they enjoyed lunch together.

Cindy then brought up LBR from his paddock and groomed/tacked him. They rode for a bit in the dusty dry dirt arena. They worked on focus and flex. After a while they headed up to the grass arena for more flat work and some ground pole work.

After about 45 minutes of arena work, they took a LBR guided trail ride. Cindy let him go on the buckle whereever he wanted to go. LBR's choice for the day was in and out every paddock (horses are now stalled during the day).

After the ride, Cindy groomed LBR and returned him to his paddock. He got treats of carrots, alfalfa cubes and ice cubes(his new favorite).

A new horse at the stables got loose and Cindy & Gary helped another boarder get him into a paddock. He's another OTTB and so handsome - though LBR wasn't impressed when he came by his paddock.
