Work was so busy today, but I managed to escape at 4:30 and headed to the pasture. I put my window down and yelled, HELLOOOO NEVEL and UP popped Nevel's head, I said hello again and UP popped Falcon's head. Both of them immediately crossed the creek and headed towards the gate.
Nevel arrived first so he he received his baggie of grain first while I groomed him and picked out his feet. I took him for a short walk, gave him an apple then let him munch some grass along the road before putting him back in the pasture.
Falcon anxiously tried to get out of the gate without a halter, but we managed to survive that and after some big munches of grass, his grain and a short grooming, K and Major arrived. Major looked quite spiffy and clean compared to Mr. muddy Falcon. I was happy to meet K and I totally forgot to thank her! So THANK YOU K. for telling me about this place where our horseys live!
(I don't think Falcon plans on saving any roadside grass for Major!)
I need to start working with his back feet/legs more. Of course he got lots of treats and T gave him a carrot to make sure they were still friends.
I am getting more relaxed around him again, but still need to work on that, so the more I handle him I know from the past, the better it will be.
Being around the horses always helps my brain empty of all of the stressful things from work. In fact I had so many good endorphins charging around that I almost pulled into my driveway before I realized my car was almost on empty...so I had to zip back out to the corner to get some gas!
It's always good to end the day with the "ponies" on my mind.
