I was supposed to watch Bridget ride PJ at around noon today but work got in the way and I cancelled. I was unhappy about having to miss watching PJ go, but I was more upset that I wouldn’t be able to get PJ’s neck cover to him – his neck is totally clipped. It is 10 deg after all. I even asked a friend to pick it up if she was headed to the barn but she couldn’t make it either.
Then the stars aligned late afternoon, and I was able to go after all and Bridget hadn’t ridden him yet. Yay. I rushed over there. I froze getting PJ ready. I felt so bad because every time I tried to take a blanket off, I shocked him. He was so jumpy by the time I finished tacking him up. Then I froze watching Bridget ride him. But it was worth it because it was the best he had ever gone. Then I froze untacking him and getting him ready for “bed,” but he wouldn’t freeze any more because I put on his neck cover.
I’m sick of winter already. That’s not a good sign!
