Waiting for spring

Spring is right around the corner, but it still isn’t here. We continue to have less than average temperatures. It was a very chilly weekend. We did manage one wonderful thing—on Saturday, Cruiser went down the hill to the river, and back. Drum roll, please…he didn’t cough. We repeated it on Sunday—still no cough. He went even faster on Sunday than Saturday. He was very excited, but he did behave. He continues to slowly gain weight. I could be riding him, soon.

Saturday, my sister and I worked in the arena and then went out on the driveway. Sunday, we skipped the arena and rode the hill twice. (The river was too high for us to cross.)  On the way home, Cole got all jumpy and prancy on the road and driveway. That meant that we went straight to the indoor arena and worked in there another 15 minutes. I’m not sure what got into him. Ranger was fine through it all.

I rode in the arena last night. I only have 2 more dark evening rides to go. The weather is looking up, too. I am hoping we will be regularly riding on the trail, soon. I want to leave the arena behind…
