As you could probably deduce from most of my posts, the weather in Grass Valley (CA) has been unseasonably, drippy, stormy, soggy WET – which is very good since we are in a drought. But, it isn’t so good for training horses…
You see, where I live, there aren’t too many indoor arenas because, well, there isn’t really a need because it rarely storms for more than a day, if that. Some of the big training facilities have indoor arenas (to avoid the sun), but most people here have large outdoor arena, often with lights so they can work at night when it is cool.
So, the long and short of this is that Wrigley hasn’t had much consistent training because his trainer (who is fearless and awesome – she started BG) has only outdoor arenas.
But recently the weather has been unseasonably sunny, so today was the day to go on a walkabout with Wrigley and Jerily, his trainer!
MY NEW BOOTS. FRANKENBOOTS.
First off… can I say that my new boots are very uncomfortable? I just needed to say that. Yes, they have hard, stout toes… but eeegaads, they are so stiff, and blocky! I feel like I am Hermann Munster. Yuk. The good part is that I can work around Annie and not worry about her stepping on my feet. The bad part is … uh… everything else.
You know you have bad boots when taking them off is a priority.
I still have not thrown out my old boots. They leak and are totally coming apart, but they are sooooo comfortable. And, they don’t make them anymore. Waaaah.
