2. I never know for sure what Lucy and I are going to focus on in our rides. Some mornings, like yesterday, we don't do anything except work on relaxation. This morning, she was much more relaxed so we did quite a bit of lateral work and some counter canter. We were both hot and sweaty, and happy, when we finished.
3. The other animals join in the action. Do you see the deer doing extended trot in the pasture behind us?
4. Kersey wanted to know if Lucy can do this move. Yes, Kersey, but not with me on her back.
5. Sedona, on the other hand, has had a tough few days. She stopped eating and started wheezing. Instead of being on alert in watch dog mode, she sprawled on the ground with her head down and eyes closed. We increased her pain med dosage and crossed our fingers. I was sure we were approaching good bye. This evening, she rallied a bit. Her appetite wasn't huge but she did eat. And she laid on the front porch with us, head up and ears at attention; surveying her domain; on duty.
