Eugene plays with everything he can reach. He’s picks up fly spray bottles from the grooming bin and breaks them, has thrown lots of drinks, plays with hula hoops and other toys. At the show on Sunday I looked over and he had grabbed an entire bag of treats out of the trailer door and was tossing his head up and down throwing them all over the place. I didn’t get a picture of that, but I did catch him playing with this Sacramento Sheriff’s Department frisbee we picked up for free at the Mustang Auction.
I joined in on my husband’s jumping lesson with Seasonal Trainer. My husband was determined to do the brush box. We started by removing the middle brush and just jumping the box. Eventually we added the brush and they both jumped it like it was no big deal. I thought they might try to jump the whole thing, but they both seemed to understand the brush concept from the start.
We sold the trailer already. I posted it Thursday night, met the buyer on Saturday and she put down a deposit, took it to her mechanic to have him do an inspection on Tuesday, and signed the title over that same day. I had a woman who was second in line and was going to drive up from San Diego to buy it. Turns out those trailers are hard to find used.
Nilla’s been totally impossible since her injections. She feels sound, but she’s stiff and crooked. Like completely bent out of shape. I’m guessing a chiro visit is needed even though she just had a chiro visit last month. I don’t really want to enter into a world of monthly chiro visits as I am not that rich, but we’ll see. I had my dressage trainer hop on her for my lesson this week. The college girls were in the ring and they were exclaiming over how great Nilla looked. My comment? You mean a gold medal winning dressage rider can make her look good? Yay!
Unfortunately, I’m not so talented. She did feel a lot better after the tune-up, but my trainer agreed she was stiff AF and might need the chiro.
I had to go to the tack store for just one thing. Pretty sure everyone reading this knows how well that worked out.
