A Walk Down Memory Lane

Ok so no riding on Saturday. We had a rainy day so instead, I spent my afternoon resting and doing not much of anything :) I had my youth activity in the evening. Spent a good part of it chatting with my friends and catching up with people. Sunday afternoon I spent inside because of the rain. I finished a book and started another one. Also just enjoyed spending the evening with my family.

Today (Monday) was sunny. :) It was really nice. I spent the evening working with the horses a bit. I had wanted to ride but since my knees have been causing me lots of pain. If it continues as it has been I shall go back to the chiropractor. So since I didn't feel up to riding, I just worked on some groundwork with both horses. I am planning to just improve on Freedom's turn on the haunches and forehand and maybe even having him side passing before riding him :) I am pleased with the progress I have made with him so far! We shall see how the month of April goes. It seems hard to believe that two years ago I was anxiously anticipating his arrival and this April he will be TWO. I was thinking how all good things take time and that I am really excited to start working him under saddle.

Some pictures of the day he was born and the next day:
First meeting
2nd day
2nd day
Freedom and Daisy this past December.
These pictures make me smile for lots of reasons. I had so much fun the day after he was born, spending time with Daisy and him. I must say raising a baby from day one is the best!! Freedom was a dream come true for me. I always wanted to raise a baby and then train it. So glad that God has blessed me with the opportunity to raise Freedom!
Anyway, I also worked with Daisy a bit as well. Not quite as much as Freedom but I am hoping to maybe ride tomorrow. Overall it was a great evening!
