Explanation. We have a horse on stall rest following colic surgery. This has taken over the blog. Mostly. [Begin, Phase IV]
By one of our horses!
After a short handwalk, Rodney did a few circles on longlines.
Being Rodney, he trotted off thinking this was Hard Work.
No, no. Just walk quietly for a few minutes.
Oh, walk quietly.
Okay, enough of that. Time to go to my header.
Unfortunately, his header was holding Milton. We had to arrange them so that Rodney could come get his cookie without encountering the chipper blades … on either end.
First tack of the year.

Yay! Spring! New life! Congrats!
These young scamps! I think a lot of longe lining will be good for them, i.e. let them work themselves down, without wearing you down. Sort of like – sure kids, go outside and play, while I prop my feet and watch.
New season for the weather! New season for the horses!
