    Busy but boring few weeks at camp Cow! Horrible weather has means no pics (i dont dare get my phone out when it feels like my fingers are going to fall off!) and still stuck in the school all week after work. Have hacked both days both weekends, mostly on the road routes as everything else is so WET!!! Argh!!

    We do have some brand new plain white poles though, so have been using those on the non-cloudy nights. The joys of having no lights...


    Total:
    Time in saddle not hacking: 20hrs 30 mins
    Hacking : 40 miles, 9hrs 10 mins

    Sonny unmounted 21.75 hours.

    OMG monster horse this am
    Ice is gone no puddled water to speak of
    The ground is soft but not horrible mud.

    Played at first on grass near my ring he became a monster
    so I had to bring him to the little cavaletti pen I did not want him to pull loose from me.

    IMG_7383.JPG
    He got in the pen rolled and all hell broke loose
    he really needed to blow it out and finally did settle down after 45 minutes of insane silly ness
    He did tear up the pen even some spots in the wood chip edge that I did re rake but it needs to be a bit deeper in wood chips
    Then we had a really nice quiet session.

    Hopefully you thaw out soon. Everything being frozen is the pitts.

    I am starting to get out a wee bit ..yeah..weather permitting lol
    I went for a hack last Thursday for 30 mins and then got out this morning for another quick 30 min hack. All was well and no dramas apart from one tiny silly spook. The sun shone too which was an added bonus
    Ridden 2hrs

    Really good play yesterday.
    No really silly boy antics.

    Sonny unmounted 23.75 hours.

    Ground was frozen but front yard grass is a bit cushiony so
    it was good play there without chopping it up.
    Then the little cav rd pen was good too.

    The sun was really nice.

    When I went back over with him later Virginia's horse Tobias was very cute.
    He was dead sound asleep in the sun.

    WE were due possible freezing rain patch this am but it seems to have gone south of us yea.
    WE are due sun and 40's later so that will be nice if things don't soften too quick and get muddy.

    Sonny unmounted 24.00 hours.

    Very short low key play yesterday.
    Just did a little in Virginias open area then let him have some nibbles by her pond.

    The ground had softened a lot so playing in the front yard would have chopped things up.
    Rain went thru last nite and really heavy fog right now. They say it will go to 50f today.

    The sun came out :D Another cold day but we had blue skies and sunshine :)
    Just another quick hack down the road for 30 mins.
    He was spooky today :rolleyes: but I didn't let it bother me, I just kept my leg on and rode him forward and I enjoyed every bit of it :D
    I then turned them both out without their rugs on for the first this year , I will pop their rugs on again later.

    Prj had 25 mins in the school today first five minutes to let him explode, i could tell leading him he really wanted to jump 50ft in the air (thats how high it looks to me haha) so let him loose and he got it out of his system then he had 20 mins each way on the lunge in just walk as he was breathing so heavy from his five minutes of galloping round and jumping in the air lol! Havent got a total for times etc! I am however penning my miles down as mainly keeping track of them :) no hacking unfortunately as all our tracks are the bottom of the hills and currently about 4 inches in water. He also got some rugless time in the field while i did some field jobs :)

    Sonny un mounted 26.25hours.

    For a coldish day
    yesterday it really was lovely out a real calm before the storm awesome blue sky. The footing was good
    to not chop things up out in the front yard.

    Got a lot of fun play in the yard and did lots of trot in the little cavaletti pen too the footing in there was really super and I did not know what the overnite snow was going to bring today.
    Tobias Virginias horse was galloping all about when I was walking Sonny back over.

    OVERNIGHT has brought about
    6 inches snow but its stopped and its supposed to clear and be sunny all day and warm to low 40's

    Now that its getting more light out the snow is very
    much a WINTER WONDERLAND look that I can appreciate since its not a horrible amount of snow..

    Play should be fun today

    20 mins on the lunge in walk for the cob today, kept him in walk as hes got a little poorly on his leg and was obviously playing the "my legs hanging off" card untill he was let back in his field and all of a sudden he was jumping round like a mental case, galloping all over and squealing... Pfffft! Was a warm day too! Spent a couple of hours picking poops! Trying to clear the field but on the really pouring rain days i cant do anything as cant get the baroow through the mud so it keeps piling up again! 8 barrows done! I was sweating! Cob enjoyed naked time too, rolled in the wettest mud patch he could find! Luckily was dry and could brush it off by the time i left! I wont even jinx it and say it feels like spring today, no way am i saying that! ;) lol
