"Hey Cousin!! Come here!! " They were all yelling. Love those crazy kids. So, who wanted me to put the camera down? Mr. Cowboy is such a ham. I wonder where the kids get it from. He only pretends to no like me taking pictures. And what is that in his mouth? Is that hay I see? Sometimes I wonder about this man. We were all loaded up. It didn't take too long. Then we had to go home and unload it all. Ugh. Hopefully we will not be needing any more hay for this winter. This time hay was $4.25 a bale. When I first moved here 5 years ago, it was $2.25 a bale.
Oh and a quick note. Horses can't feel their mane. So, it doesn't hurt them when their manes are pulled. I do if for showing. I like it short and thinned so I can band and braid their manes.
I also have been cantering Ozzie. He has been doing really great. If he keeps up the good work I will be putting my jumper saddle on him and heading to my friends barn for some ground pole lessons. I am excited about that. Ozzie is a quick learner. Right now he gets ridden four days a week and lunged one day. He and I get the weekends off.
