The weather was rather ominous, and as we were under a severe thunderstorm warning, I decided to postpone a visit to the barn until tomorrow. Now that the rain is coming down hard and heavy, I think I made a good decision. I didn't want a repeat of last Friday's lesson, and I don't think Blondie would be able to handle the thunder with the same indifference as Jimmy. Plus, with the lights flickering, I would have been totally screwed if the power went out at the barn. Pray that it doesn't go out here!
Here's a pic from the Ludington show. This Friesian stud was being naughty, and had just stood up, striking his handler. She didn't seem too badly hurt by his kick, but I bet she had one heck of a bruise. He was a beautiful horse, in spite of his rude manners.
