tuesday was a blip

in that the weather is now somewhat cold and snowy. to be fair, no where near as bad as in other places (new jersey, for instance) but too bad for any of us to want to do anything... the only consolation is that the mud is frozen.

apparently, we can blame the jet stream....

5 minutes

in hand

still a very faint glimmer of light, no howling gale, no rain, and the temperature got up to 8 C.  so that was motivational (thinking ahead to when we can do more) to do some in hand, only 5 minutes but think i got a shoulder in left.

Gaynor's hoping it doesn't snow tomorrow; the forecast isn't looking good for her!

a nice day decent weather and no injuries to either of us (well, not strictly true, he had a lump on his jaw that wasn't troubling him and was missed by the bridle...)

in hand and lunging

and proved again to the satisfaction of all that

1. i can lunge any other horse but mine
2. Monfils will lunge for anyone but me
3. therefore, it's not my technique

and turns out i'm not alone in that, someone else i know has the same problem (her horse will lunge for men ...)

a three day jaunt

to taunton (the other end of the country) for my niece's wedding enjoyable wedding, and the weather was good so they could do photos outside.  Apparently i missed nothing weather wise up here and G wasn't able to ride M at all....
