Here are basically my first snow pictures of the year. We have had hardly any snow. Sorry, you snow people. But I have no complaints at all and the 40 degrees can come back now. These pics I just snapped fast with my cheap camera. So they are not the best, but it's something.
I was also thrilled today! Enzo's butt was dry today. I was sooo happy to see this! We increased the hay pellets to a whole scoop, 2 times a day. I really hope this is all we will have to do. Since, Enzo will be eating me out of house and home, LOL. I also started Enzo on the probios today. That will probably help as well.
Do your Parelli horses blow when you play with them??? Enzo and Kaspin are always quiet. I can get them to lick and chew. Shake their heads. Yawn, etc. But now blowing out. I was recently watching the new Parelli Game of Contact DVD. And I was amazed at how many times Linda's horses blew out and Linda would always mention how good it was! So my latest Parelli game is working on blowing out for relaxation! Today I played with Enzo for 2 hours. That is my norm for the weekends. We played all kinds of Parelli games on the ground. Then at the very end, I got on Enzo with halter with Parelli lead and my treeless sensation saddle and walked around a tiny. But I so had fun! I keep the rides very short, since Enzo is still young and growing. Anyway, after we left the arena Enzo blew out 4 times!! I was definitely thrilled, since I hardly ever hear this from Enzo( only 2 other times, before this one!). But at the same time disappointed. Enzo did it when we were leaving the arena!! Arggg, I want Enzo to be relaxed enough to do it in the arena. So more work from me to get him to blow out inside the arena.
I then played with Kaspin for 1 hour. With Kaspin I am really working on his confidence. Since he is a chicken about everything. And I am working on him understanding my leadership. Kaspin does need a leader he can trust. Since again he himself is worried about all. I worked on Parelli Touch it today and Kaspin had fun doing that! He even chewed on a few things and that is great for Kaspin. Eventually, I rode Kaspin in a halter with lead and my treeless sensation saddle. Kaspin did great today. I could feel his confidence was going good after our ground preparations. Plus, it was good for me. Since I got the OK to ride after Jan 17th. Now I can get my hips and legs back into shape:)
I hope you all had a super equine weekend as well, Janine, Enzo and Kaspin!
