Talk about wrecking havoc on your creative juices when your Verizon (no tv, no internet, no phone) goes down completely Saturday night and you don’t get it back till Monday about 10 am. OMG longest weekend ever and not in a good way. Anagrams and Trivial Pursuit and Audible saved my mind but seriously. It was a crazy weekend for sure.
I did get to go see Remus some this weekend but the mud and rain (and mud and rain and repeat) is so bad. It is disgusting. I went to drop more smartpaks off on Sat then went back Sunday to ride (no internet right?? so might as well go to the barn). Well smarty pants me remembered my saddle, my boots, my girth, and my saddle pad. I had Remus tacked up after going all Creature of the Black Lagoon to get him out of his field (seriously I needed a snorkel mask to get thru that mud) and then I realized I had left my helmet home. (Amanda, I thought of you and your saddles LOL) OH WELL….so I lunged him instead. Well after trying to wash and brush all (some) of the mud off.
One good thing is my bridle has never been cleaner (mine is on the right, thank you Kym for cleaning it every time so well!). And Remus was in the hay shed and not in the mud when I got there (he is very thankful for that shed) but I had to walk through all the mud to get him. So gross.
Out in the arena, Remus attempted to raid the trash can (Serious Oscar the Grouch vibes here). He was really good lunging both ways even at the canter (WHO is this horse?). And he kept on cantering both ways for a while. No bucks too!
Such a good boy!!
It was great to just mess around with him and not worry about much (like no internet). He truly was happy to just be with me. I will be glad to get him back to his barn but man am I going to miss that wash stall and that arena (and Emily too). I am so happy to go home from work today to internet and tv and phone again. Goodbye, Dark Ages I will not miss you. Though the gloomy skies are persisting still. I NEED SOME SUN!! STAT.
My 30 things blog post is coming this week. I got stuck on 25 due to no internet over the weekend!:) I hope everyone else had a horsey (and technology) full weekend!
