I’m always like a kid on Christmas just so eager to get on my new horses. The rain finally stopped and I wasn’t letting the 100% humidity or killer mosquitos stop me.
Burgiss was first and we walked in hand around the ring and he didn’t look at a thing. He was ready to get on with it so we did a little bit of w/t/c just to get to know each other. He is still a bit worried that he might be thrown on the trailer again so he needs to settle in. Otherwise, he is lovely and my absolute favorite type. I prefer the 15.3 h sportscar models! They are easy for me to ride and just sporty as can be. Isn’t he adorable?
I think he was quite happy to be back into work. I’m sitting here at 8:15am writing this working my way out to the barn to do ride number 2.
Next up was Ramblin Romeo. I absolutely couldn’t wait to sit on him because he just struck me as the type that was going to be super professional and easy. When I had some buyers over here recently I had told them this was going to be the next horse they would love. I don’t know how I knew that but sometimes I just think you can look at a horse and know how they are going to be to ride/work with. He was the one that Bev from MAHR had found outside of the New Holland Sale. Let’s just say we are thankful we could help him out and I think he feels the same about us.
He was impatient for me to just get on. It was like he was saying why in the world are you walking me around this ring waiting for me to spook at something..I don’t spook so just get on already. So I did 🙂 He was great and was very soft in the bridle and seemed to have a lot of good training on him.
These are both super nice horses and it’s going to be fun working with them.
