double lesson day!

Much to update you all on, things are happening fast around here. Lambing is in full swing, kits and older bunnies are hopping about, and in a few minutes I'll be in full riding apparel and on my way to Patty's farm. Instead of the usual visit where I learn to drive with her and Steele in their beautiful acres, she's got Steele loaded up in the trailer and her breeches on! She's taken the lesson slot after mine at Riding Right, and today a Fell pony and a giant draft horse will share the arena. Patty has been wanting to get back into riding lessons, and I think that is great. But what I am most excited about is seeing our two horses in the cross ties side by side, and such a big powerful horse at my dressage barn. It'll be a hoot!

P.S. Since this photo was taken in March, both horse and rider have lost weight!

I'm curious, what does an experienced horse person like Patty have to gain from taking lessons? (My knowledge about horses is zip so this may be a dumb question.)

Yahoo, spring is here! So glad to hear more lambing is underway at Cold Antler! I've been hoping and hoping for more curly babies for you. Enjoy your riding lesson, and everything else you do today!

Jenna, You are a wonder and a half (nope, a quarter with the new bod). Best to you and all your passions; still wish you were my neighbor!
