Another gorgeous day; bright and sunny but a good wind making it seem less than the otherwise *sticky* 28°. I sat feeding the fish, camera in hand, marvelling at nature's ability to make the simple so exotic.
This water lily just doesn't look real it's almost too perfect.
Moralejo was chilled in spite of flies and the wind, I really can't believe how cool actually. He actually stopped twice when annoyed by horse flies and I dismounted, made the kill and remounted with zero fuss on his part. Worked lots in walk due to the heat and got some great leg yield after working first with the giravolta....took that forward to the trot and he was very light in my hand so I now need to add another pinch of that spice in my regular work.
Chapiro is hating the serious flies that have now arrived; dosed him up with Butox spinal pour on (another cattle product) and he was much more comfortable going out tonight.
