Yep, we have armpit muscles...I know this because mine are sore today. The day after a fall, and the day after the day after a fall are the worst. BUT...I am doing good! My jaw is sore, I have had a headache most of the day, and I have a big bruise on my inner thigh - I think I might have hit the horn. I asked Brian since he got to see the whole graceful event, and he doesn't remember me hitting the horn, but he said it makes sense. Tripp dropped his head and swung around to the left and I came over his shoulder, so the angle would have been right....HEY! Wait a minute. If he swung around it was because Brian was standing in front of him - so it is Brian's fault! HA HA HA!!! I found a way to blame my husband for me not staying in the saddle!!! HA HA HA!!!! (Just kidding baby - I love you!)
This morning I went out to feed and the ground was frozen again, so I got Tripp and we headed to the bigger round pen. We did a bunch of ground work and then I rode him. We did a lot of the basics and it went great. I have to admit, going back to the basics is fun because I get to communicate with Tripp different than when I am riding. It also reminds him of what he can do well so he has lots of successes.
Anyways, he was his old self again. After we were done in the pen, I took him for a walk thru the woods. It was breezy instead of that crazy wind we had yesterday, and he didn't act like he cared one bit. Actually, I think he is a little sore too. Maybe he will remember this the next time he gets full of himself. :-)
Brian took some big bales out today and I had all 4 donks in one pen until Brian got done. Summer, the smaller one I am babysitting loves hanging out with the boys. Jester is not in the picture - he was hiding.
From left to right we have: Summer, Zjax and Ajax.
Here is a head shot of Jester...can't leave him out.
Okay, when Tripp and I went for a walk I found a neat bone. There were a couple of other bones by it that looked like chicken leg bones, but this bone isn't a chicken! It looks more like an Alien! Pretty cool, eh?
That is about it for the day.
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Until later...Karen and Tripp
