I'm proud of the little girl. It would be nice to have a horse who can go on trail rides and be chill about it. Of course, I will be dragging her to some kind of competitive event at some point, but I can envision her packing a kid around and having fun with the hilltoppers while fox hunting. According to my mom, she's kicking ass at the cowboy farm. Good girl!
Bonus Lex update: All's well there. I didn't ride today because I have a bad case of the sniffles and no energy, but I did go see her and snuggle with her for awhile. Yesterday she just really wanted to canter, and when I finally let her, I thought I might have a rodeo. Instead she surprised me by being totally quiet and fun and cantered around like a civilized person. She's ready to start jumping for real. Let's do this.
My baby girls are growing up!
