Bright side

The week began dry and cold. Dibby and I were both taken in the school this morning. We worked alone in walk, trot and canter with some lateral work and transitions. We ran through Prelim 1 reasonably successfully, although without a crop Dad found it difficult to get me to go forward sufficiently. That plan may require re-thinking. After a bad night, Dad was also a little tired before we started - and a lot more tired by the time we had finished.

We concluded the session walking and trotting around together and then went out to graze for the afternoon.

We came in at about 4.15. Other Dad brought in Leo at the same time as us and he seemed a little lame. It was later necessary to call out Rob, the vet to see him.

We were groomed and given tea after rather a tiring day. With the grind of the cold and mud, January doesn't have much to commend it. Fortunately, our minties and apples aren't seasonal. Cobs can usually be relied on to identify the bright side.
