Riding Journal, Horsekeeping
Lucky enough to have a horse.
Awareness of the outside world. Sad that the roll-out is going slowly. Logistics are hard. Even I know this. Why weren’t folks running every-possible-contingency scenarios for the last nine months? Any progress is good. Faster would be better. CNN: US officials promised 20 million vaccinated against coronavirus by the end of the year. It’s going slower than that by Kaufman, Grayer, Murray and Kane, December 28, 2020.
It feels like this post should be longer. We had lots of time at home to fiddle with horses.
We did the Virtual Tevis. [Archives]
Both horses are getting better about walking around the pasture. Not completely at ease on their own yet. Together they do great. We can tack up our two horses and go for a pleasant ride. Almost like normal. [Finding the Lemonade, photo Tailgating]
They have become excellent travelers, at least for the short hauls we have been on so far. Load. Stand. Ship. Reload. Good boys. [Ready For Their Roadtrip Buddy Movie]
In an alternate, non-pandemic time-line, we would have done more of the small, local hunter and dressage shows that Milton & I did. Missing these is not breaking my heart. We might have hitched more. Then again, we were having trouble getting our driving ducks in row at the beginning of the year. [Weekly Check-In, photo Not From Around These Parts]
In this one, narrow, personal area, the year didn’t entirely suck pond water. We made some progress. We kept ourselves amused. Horses stayed healthy. I mean overall healthy. With these two, there are many prince and the pea moments. [Woe Is Us]
Everyone is ears up, hooves down. What more can we ask after this horrendous year? [Weekend Update]
Stay safe. Stay sane.
