Here is a picture of me and my best friend Freedom Dancer

I will be taking tomorrow off...well actually the plan is to spend the day playing with my DOR.

The weather continues to be warm, so I have just been doing groundwork with my DOR. She continues to improve, it appears that she has has some past experience with the lessons we are working on so really I am just giving her a refresher course. I have noticed she has some bad habits that are the result of show ring training. Things like; using both reins at the same time, pulling back on two reins to stop, some sort of odd/contorted foot position, and what appears to be a stick running up her back. I keep working on a more relaxed riding position with her.

I hang out in a pasture with Freedom Dancer, a pushing 40 appy. He is a good old guy and we have been spending lazy afternoons scritching each other. Freedom hangs out and watches me give the DOR lessons...he does a lot of giggling.

Rumor has it that I am going to go work with some cows soon. I am trying to figure out what it is I am supposed to teach them when I am working with them. Cows are so stupid I am not sure there is much hope to teach them anything. It may just be fun just to tease them by following them around.

If you are setting off fireworks tomorrow, remember to take care not to frighten any animals that may be in the area.

Enjoy your day and don't forget to hug your DOR
