I have finally finished the last book in the Twilight series. It was really good. I think the first and the last book were my favorites. That was about the only thing that was going my way today.
I rode Ozzie for about 45 minutes, tonight. He must have had a blurb in his memory today. He acted like he had never been asked to "set" his head before. Then when I would ask him to trot off, he acted like we were in a hurry to get somewhere. We did a lot of stopping and backing. Days like this in training leave me wanting to send the horse to someone else. Just get the riding over and done with. I know how to break colts. I know how to do all that hard work. I just do not like the time it takes to get from green broke to the , "Oh now I get it, point". Sigh. I guess it didn't help that he had not been ridden in about three days. I have been lunging him but I guess that is not enough. I just have not had the time either. Mr. Cowboy is working like crazy lately. He was going to ride Ozzie for me tonight out in the big pasture. But he had to work. My thoughts were that Mr. Cowboy will just get on Ozzie and ride. I get too worried about where his head is and what is hip is doing, that I can't just let Ozzie be. That can be a good thing and a bad thing. I think what Ozzie needs right now is to feel confident in his gaits before I can really start concentrating on slowing things down or setting his head. Urg. Again, this is where I would have loved to have had a good trainer ride my horse. I have been trying to undo a lot of what was done. Ozzie now hangs on my hands and he depends on me to put him where he is supposed to go. I like my horses to just go. To walk a straight line with out me baby sitting every hoof step. Okay, I will just let it go and try again tomorrow. Tomorrow is always another day.
Totally off the subject, but, the other day the kids and I had some really big boxes to play with so I made them some play houses. I didn't have time to edit all the photos, so here is a sneak peak for tomorrow's post.
I am pooped, so I am going to go to bed. Oh, I forgot the best part of my story from my day from kid craziness. The kids and I were in the grocery store, the bread isle to be exact, when Big Cowpoke just randomly threw up all over the isle way floor. I was walking and he had to tell me to stop. Yep, the "Clean up on isle 2", was my child. I really started to feel bad about the mess. A big grateful that I didn't have to clean it up for once. But I didn't feel so bad when we were in the bathroom and they guy that had to clean it up looked at us with a smile and said, "Oh well, at least it makes my day interesting and go by faster." Talk about a sweet spirit that guy has. I would have said something a bit....uhm.....more....... not pleasant. So, I am now going to bed. Until tomorrow. Y'all come back now ya hear!
