Friends make horses (more) fun

For the first time in a while, I have friends at the barn with whom I can share my hobby.

Yesterday, I met Voodoo's mom out at the barn in the morning, and we let them play together for a while. Then she lunged him in the arena, while I hopped on Panama and rode bareback for a little while at the other end. It was a nice, companionable way to spend a morning at the barn.

Voodoo's mom is seven months pregnant right now, so it'll be a couple of months until she is able to ride again. I'm looking forward to having someone to trail ride with in the summer. I've also made other friends at the barn with whom I should be able to ride when the weather warms up and the trails dry out, but it's Voodoo's mom I look forward to riding with the most.

It's so nice to have horsey friends at the barn — something I really missed at the private residence where I used to board!
