Chrome & Rocky Playing

Sorry I've been absent.  Life is just crazy right now.  I'm so happy it's daylight savings time because now maybe I'll be able to get stuff done during daylight after work.  If it ever stops raining....

For now here is a video of Chrome and Rocky playing last weekend.

This makes me so happy because Rocky can be a bully and I didn't think they really ever played.  I'm glad to see they do.

For those of you who can't watch videos here is a picture of my handsome, but filthy, Chrome.

Chrome Ride 150 - 100 Ride Challenge Ride 1

I finally got on my horse!!  This is only the second time I've been on him since last July.  The first time was a couple of months ago and was only for about a minute.  Today I rode twenty minutes.  There isn't much to say because all we did was walk around, with a couple of short trots and some work on backing up with his head down.  He felt good.  Not lame at all, although his stifles are a bit stiff.  The lack of riding hasn't helped his loose stifles.  He was a bit looky, but didn't spook.  There aren't a lot of horses that you can hop on bareback in a halter after seven months of no riding, so I was proud of him even though we didn't do much.  I'm so happy to be back to riding!

It was late so the pictures aren't great.  I had a really bad headache and a crick in my neck, but it actually wasn't raining so I decided I better just jump on.  If I keep waiting for the perfect riding weather I won't ride all winter...  oh and don't judge me on how filthy he is!!  I didn't have time to groom him before I rode or it would have been full dark by the time I got on!

 Sniffing the cat.

Sorry for the short post.  Hopefully I'll have more interesting stuff to post about soon.  Just waiting on that longer daylight.... I hope you guys are all having fun and doing well.  I'll try to get caught up on blogs.  I'm so behind it seems impossible, but I'll keep trying.

Chrome's Dapples

We were putting out hay and the sun was actually shining so I got some pictures of Chrome to show you his dapples.  They aren't super impressive, but they are there.  :D

Ignore the dirt.  He is so filthy!  It was raining yesterday.

Below are some that I edited the white contract and darkened them so you can see them better.  I wish he looked like that in person hehe.

Dapples!!!!  He's so cute!
