It's been another cold crisp day without the threatened snow (well until about an hour ago and we've now had a couple of cm) and being a Wednesday (Lydia has no school) we decided to get into Limoges and buy the blinds/curtains for the newly finished guest accomodation. Aaarrgghh shopping with a fella is never good but with a nine year old added into the equation it is downright frustrating. Enough said we now have new blinds and curtains to hang.
It was late by the time I got to work Moo but he was a very good boy. I'm trying to not treat him to delicately; I've taken it gently since he's been back into work but I think it's time to stretch him (literally as well) by asking a little more. Yesterday I rode him, just in walk, and he tried really hard and we had some brief moments of nice work. Today I worked him on the lunge working with lots of inside flexion and encouraging him to bring the inside hind up and through a little more (by touching with the whip). We finished with some canter trannies...yay on the left, still a bit 'stuck' on the right. Back to the yard and he did his hindlegs stretches better than ever. Guess it'll be back to working in the snow tomorrow.
note to self...write next section for other blog by end of week-end
