Hickory: February 23

What a nice week, even with the wind! We have so needed this weather to dry things up & remind us all that spring is on its way.

This week, we continued to review our groundwork & pony through the pastures. Today, we had a really great opportunity with Randy home early this week tinkering on his truck. What started as an easy project turned into a frustration, as those things usually do. 😅 So there was quite a ruckus with the impact running & some cussing that Hickory had to put up with. At first, he was definitely wide-eyed, but in not as much time as I expected, he came down & was licking & chewing, lowering his head. This is the first time that action has been happening on the place other than me that Hickory's eyes have softened. It's a great thing to see as I bring someone new to help with that first ride, hopefully, next week, now that the round pen is drying up.

These past few weeks of weather warming up have been so good for the horses. If they're not out of the pen working, they're eating, napping, or playing A LOT.

Next week, we'll take advantage of the near 70° weather on Monday for a bath. I'll take photos then as well. The horses may have a rest day as temperatures drop down to 24° on Tuesday, but we'll pick back up on Wednesday. I'm waiting to hear back from JD about whether Thursday will work for getting a ride on Hickory.

Next week's update will be posted on Friday.
