Warming up

After yet another storm, in which it rained and snowed for days but nothing ever accumulated, it seems like the weather is finally warming up again.  I spent yesterday in a tank top at the barn (and got a little toasted, too).

The plan is to take advantage of the weather, and start spending more time with my horses, especially riding time.  Panama needs regular riding, and I need to start riding Rondo more often too, so that he doesn't totally forget how to work with me.

I didn't ride yesterday, but I did turn both of my horses out together.  They were both feeling pretty saucy, and I got a lot of great pictures of them running and playing.

Panama had tons of energy, as you can see by his Arab tail:

Rondo did too, and was enjoying keeping up with Panama!  (Yes, Panama is faster than Rondo, despite how much littler he is.)

I love it when they match strides when they run together, which they seem to be doing a lot of lately.  This picture would be amazing if Rondo was a touch closer so that his tail wasn't cropped out.

Enjoying the scenery...

While they were taking a breather, I knelt down and was looking at my phone.  Both horses came up behind me to see what I was doing, so I took advantage of the opportunity to get some candid selfies.

Finally, a funny story.  I laid the lunge whip on the ground, and Rondo decided to come check it out.  Hilarity ensued...

It was clear he knew exactly what he was doing.  Panama looks a little harassed, doesn't he?

Such a beautiful afternoon with horses!
