Winston is anxious to get the show on the road and move to Aspen Meadows. Me too. Here's the schedule:
Sunday, the 15th:
I will leave at the crack of dawn, pick up my trainer, and drive five hours to Winston's barn. There, my trainer will evaluate his dressage worthiness and I will ride him again -- under her watchful eye. My first lesson on Winston! She has already watched video of him and declared that we are a good fit so I'm not worried about this trip. We will drive back home that afternoon/evening -- it's gonna be a long day.
Monday, the 16th:
Vet check! I can't be there but the vet will have me on the phone. I've used this vet before, when we purchased Auke, and I like him. Fingers crossed Winston's feet are normal on the x-rays.
Tuesday, the 17th:
Brett will hook up the trailer and drive to Fresno. I will go to the office and try to concentrate on work.
Wednesday, the 18th:
Brett will load up Winston in the morning and drive back home. He should arrive home in the early afternoon so I can get Winston settled in before dark.
In the meantime, I'm daydreaming and trying not to worry about the vet check.
