I started the day slightly depressed by how chilly the early morning air had become, a sure sign that Winter is fast approaching. I don't know about anyone else but I love the heat and long evenings.
Things rapidly improved despite the weather though. By lunchtime, Determined Again had been adopted and had found a home with someone that could devote time to his continued rehab.
Continuing on with my day's work, I took Toots for a leisurely stroll in the rain - being English, I love riding in the rain and Toots was happy to indulge me. I then got the 3 new additions started. All went exceptionally well on the lunge, in both directions and I can see tremendous potential in all 3. Atticus is a wonderful mover and very attentive to direction even with another horse going around in the arena next to him. Bonus Point and Satin Kddin also did great and stayed calm and focused even though the arena can be a bit like a wind tunnel. All in all, I was extremely pleased with how they all went.
The day ended on a high note too - You're Darn Tootin' was adopted and is bound for a wonderful home down on the Florida Gulf Coast. While I shall be sad to see him go as we have become firm friends, I am glad that he has found someone that so clearly wanted him. Love you Toots xx
