I was so disappointed yesterday when I realized it wasn't Friday yet. This week has been dragging on and on and needs to be over. Stinker had yesterday off so I stole Cowboy and took him out for a trail ride to see how he was doing with things. My mom has primarily been riding him 4-5 days a week and I haven't had much of a chance to do anything with him.
He has gotten so pokey leaving the barn. I was a little concerned that there was something wrong, but nope she has just been letting him get away with being pokey. He only got a little spooky as an avoidance because work is hard. Overall it was a pretty good ride.
I realized it was getting dark more quickly than anticipated and I had to cross a road (I didn't want to be doing that in the dark on a dark horse with no reflective gear). So instead of looping around like I had intended, we took a deer trail to try to get back down off the hill. It got a little steeper than I anticipated and at one point I accidentally got him in some wire. Luckily it was smooth wire and he didn't get freaked out by it. Good boy Cowboy.
