hit and miss

Riding has been a little hit and miss.  Several days of rain left the arena too soggy to ride.  So riding off and on between rains.  Today the arena was great but Nina had a minor meltdown over the tree trimmer hacking away at the big cottonwood tree that we all sit under.  She actually was fine with the cherry picker, fine with the tree limbs falling out of nowhere, but the chain saw kicking on after she had decided that it was safe had her upset for a while. 
She did manage to get her head on and was fine for a short ride.  I am a little frustrated and not being able to get into a routine fitness sort of program with her (mainly through a serious lack a attention and focus on my part) but, on the other hand, she is sound and has stayed that way for...... oh......days now.  So I will be happy with that. 
I trimmed her mane and was going to take a picture - but I might let it grow back out a bit first.


  1. Sounds like you should just forget about expectations and do what you can when you can and enjoy! :)
    Love Edward!! ;)

  2. I'm just getting out of one of those riding funks. Sucks when you feel like you just don't have the time right now to go ride the pony.

    And I lolled at the Edward Scissorhands!
