Karin came over for breakfast before her funday Monday started. After breakfast she worked with Bethany and Hannah. Hannah is now mounting by herself at the canter. Bethany is the check person for her below but told us she was just there incase Hannah needed help.
She knows how to close her eyes tight.
Four day old Jace spent most of the morning getting his pictures taken by great Aunt Rachel, then most of the afternoon asleep in his mother's arms.
The man coming to see Hadassah and her colt called, he was lost in Peoria. I ended up driving into Peoria to have him follow me back to the farm. He was very pleased with Hadassah and put a deposit down on her and her colt. Once she is confirmed in foal he will pay her off and pick her up. It was worth the drive to Middle Grove to pick them up. The trail riders arrived home reporting Indy did fantastic! Ayanna was also very good although Indy was more willing to lead than Ayanna. Below Rhoda is leading them back to the paddock to put them away.
They are so impressive for such young horses. Ayanna just turned 3 and Indy won't be three until July.
Rhoda and Emily took Darcy and Emma over to Diane's pond to cool off after working most of the day.
Darcy played and played, she is going to be very sore tomorrow. This huge spider was sitting on the retaining wall at Diane's.
I asked Rhoda to put her hand next to it, just to show exactly how huge this arachnid really is.
