days. And I did.
Le sadsack blogpost motivated me for a brief while. I'm absolutely wiped out, but not only did I manage to secure a monthly bonus for May, I PR back squat at the gym AND worked Bacardi and he was AMAZEBALLS. Twas a good day.
I got home a little early (10 min) and barely even changed clothes before I sprinted to the barn to lunge the red nugget before the sun went down. He was slightly confused why I wasnt feeding him, but nonetheless, was an absolute angel.
I didn't want to lunge for long, as we haven't done so since the last time where he laid down on me *crying laughing emoji*. I think that was like, February! All I really wanted to do was get that ass twerkin for minute.
It was also balls hot outside and I do believe the bugs are now out in full force. Yay summer.
Bacardi floored me with his manners. Its like he thought about lunging expectations for 3 months and now just...does them. I couldn't believe it. He halted when I asked, stood stock still, changed direction without fuss, changd gaits without explosions and listened to half halts. It was truly glorious.
A few times he slipped in the grass and freaked for about half a second with a small crow hop, but in general he was obedient, relaxed and willing.
|HELLO hind end|
|WHATS UP stretchy trot|
His canter was a bit of a mess, but we didn't have much room to work and he's terribly weak still at that gait. In time. In time.
I was just happy with a calm, forward canter.
Can you guys believe that tomorrow marks ONE YEAR that I've owned the red one?
