Vet Visit and Dressage Saddle


Robbye got her bi-annual shots done yesterday. She was her typical self during the shots – looked, but didn’t mind too much. She’s so drafty in her demeanor, which I love of course.

Sleepy Robbye.

She also got her tear duct flushed out, which meant she got to get sleepy-drugs!! Drugged out horses are just so funny to me. I love the way their ears droop.

Adorable droopy donkey ears.
I went to work, then came back to the barn in the evening to ride. Julie gave Kathy a lesson while I tried out Julie’s dressage saddle. I don’t think I’d ever ridden in a dressage saddle before, but I absolutely loved it. I felt very secure, and apparently the way it changed my seat helped Rob move in a nicer way. Sweet! I worked on my sitting trot, and Rob worked on her trot-to-walk transitions. We both need a lot of practice.

Dressage! And an AP pad. Heh.
 After our ride, I took Rob into our wash stall (!!!) and conditioned and braided her tail, then put it in a soccer sock tail bag. I’m hoping that will help her grow out the goat-chew. I don’t mind the short section too much, but I would like her to be perfect, of course.
Soccer sock butt.
She had hair literally falling off of her. Dang.
