Happiness is....getting ready to take your pony for a spin!
I have learned to decipher the screaming between Ruby and Blondie. Ruby starts, panicked, by wondering where her new bestest buddy is. Blondie responds jealously that she's forced to work while Ruby is allowed to eat her hay in peace. My thinking is that if Blondie wasn't getting so fat grazing during the day, I wouldn't have to go and ride her almost every day.
She was a good girl today, but it was very hot, back in the 80s, so I didn't ride her very long. She was still soaked when I took her back to her stall. Today would have been a great day to ride outside, but the outdoor is partially flooded, so I refrained from being brave and heading out there. Maybe if the weather holds, I'll try this weekend.
