|Percy & Pepper|
Idag blev det mer skoj då en kompis med dotter kom förbi. Först tränade vi Tea på att dra snowracer och det gick lika bra som sist. Vi red ut på Pepper, Calinka och Bunny. Tyvärr var det halare än under lördagen men vi fick till lite mer än skritt. På hemväg tog vi samma fält och hästarna blev lite väl pigga i galoppen… Nåja, allt gick bra. Pepper som hade massor med energi fick ta ett varv till och tolkas efter. Tyvärr gick det inte alls lika bra som när Frida gjorde det förra året. Hon på skidor studerade snön på väldigt nära avstånd ganska många gånger… (Skidorna tvärtnitade lätt vid minsta ojämnhet – typ hästspår- i snön).

Finally some time
I thought I could make Pepper a little bit tired by long reining in the snow at Friday but I think I were wrong. I was warm but Pepper wasn’t neither warm nor had a heavy breathing. It worked better to trail ride for 30- 40 minutes during Saturday and finishing with canter in the deep snow. Ok, he wasn’t very tired but at least he got a little bit warm.
Today we had more fun. A friend passed by with her daughter. First we trained Tea to pull as last weekend and she did great this time to. Then we took Pepper, Calinka and Bunny for a short trial ride. It all went good but maybe a little to fast when we cantered in the deep snow on our way
home and the horses got a little excited. Everything went fine and we brought the mares back to the stable. Pepper got to pull my friend on skies but it didn’t work out as good as it did for Frida last year. My friend appeared to prefer to study the snow very closely. (The short skies easily got under the snow if any irregularities – like the track from a horse…)
When it comes to Percy I am a bit worried. It seems as she has had a slight bleeding and I hope that doesn’t mean that she has lost her foal this year as well. Therefore she got to stay home and rest. I also took a trip in the pasture during Saturday at Calinkas back to see if I found any more tracks. As the other horses joined us I got some nice photos of them running around.
