The sun is shining, the mud is drying, and the horses are relatively clean. You know what that means!
It's not just because I want to ride but because I have to. Phoenix my Prince still has a few little lessons to learn before he's working for a living. He's doing great - collecting nicely and responding well to my cues. I'm still working on those lope transitions. I know he can do it. I know I can do it. We just gotta get together on this project.
Have I mentioned how much I hate this time of year? Hate it. Even though the sun is getting up around the same time I have to, I do NOT want to get out of bed. Once everybody's been walked and fed and taken to the bus stop, I wanna get right back into bed. Blaaaggghhhh.
Getting out to the barn is still a drag, even though I no longer have to get into my truck to get to the barn. Yes, that does definitely make it a lot easier!! But my ambition is looow.
At least once I'm out there I could just stay there all day.
But here's the problem: I WANT TO WRITE!
Why, why, why couldn't I have gotten the urge to write in the dead of winter? Why????
I have so many things to do now that the snow's gone, and I want to curl up on my bed with the MacWhite perched on my knees so I can do this writing project!
But I really want to have my horse time too.
Hey- wait a second...
THIS IS ACTUALLY A REALLY GOOD PROBLEM TO HAVE.
... especially since some of this writing project has something to do with my furry friends out there...
