Slithering pungent shadows in the dark against the black iron wrought fence.
The dog, after 4 years, has finally learned not to pursue.
We’re saving big on baking soda, dish detergent, peroxide. No foul-mouthed doggie showers all summer for a change. Even after late night outings in our hills above the house.
Valiosa and I have made another, big, change – moving up to my friend’s quiet little dressage barn. Pure bliss!
Can’t even begin to tell about the whirlwind of work involved in the past 7 days. It’s all turning out wonderful! Once finished this fall, perhaps I make a feature on how to make a safe, quick, Dressage On A Dime worthy, horse shelter.
My mare, of course, has been a star all the way around – no destructiveness. Settled in like a dream immediately. OK fine, peeing excessively non stop for the new gelding friend, but the rest has been impeccable.
Standing like a lit candle in the new cross ties.
I’m so happy to have this opportunity – covered arena and all! (Yes, please don’t hate me.) Next up, teaching her a real canter transition, and leg yield. It will take a while.
