Here is Sovey this afternoon, trotting like a giraffe with a 700lb rider on his back. Ha! Actually, he soon relaxed his head and neck, and, I just look like I weigh 700lbs! Although it was 58 degrees, I have a ton of layers on and a huge jacket. Brian, Maizie and I have been fighting the same illness, the one that will remain nameless, since the end of October. Fever, sore throats, and barking coughs. I call it the plague, but I think we all know what it is. My solution is to wear so many clothes that my fever feels normal - like I am just "hot". I really am feeling a lot better, and I can't bear to miss a day of riding.
Sick or not, could you stand to miss one day with the cutie above...or the mudball below?
I had groomed Pie first thing this morning, but both boys were completely covered when I went to ride after lunch. Sovey loves his grazing/grooming routine now which helps. After my ride on Sovey, I groomed Pie again!
