Q: Can February March?
A: No, but April May!
HI guys, Fancy is here with a Monday morning vote and a blog from Frances.
Good morning! I will tell you a little about our weekend before I run out of steam ")
I am still working with the scar tissue in my hand. The lump in my hand is still large, but has decreased in size. I think that is good.
Fatima is gaining weight in her rib area and she is very friendly.
My oldest son came home Friday. We have been out a lot. Saturday he cooked breakfast before we went out to introduce him to Fatima. They got along very well. Fatima knows how to lunge. My son saddled her and she stood well. I put the broken bit in her mouth and tested to see if she would give to the bit. She did not seem to have a clue about the bit. Fatima kept biting at the shanks of the broken bit, even though they were short. She kept tossing her head also. I decided to exchange the broken bit with Fancy's trail curb bit. Fatima did not know how to give to the bit, but she did better with the curb bit. She stopped tossing her head and did not bite at the curb bit. My son sat on her and she only stood still. She acted like she had no idea about how to walk off or listen to the bit. But she did not show any mean or sour tendencies.
Fatima would not follow Cowboy and Trigger so, I lead her around for a minute while my son sat on her. We took all of them to the field. A friend rode Fancy to the field, I had to lead them. She was afraid Fancy would not listen to her because she does not know how to ride well.
When we got to the field, my oldest son rode Fancy. Fancy was a little spirited. They ran around the field with Cowboy and Trigger. Fancy was doing a gorgeous trot with a lot of extension. I have no idea how she came about doing that. I have got to learn about these gaits! I am glad I saw that. I was surprised Fatima did not respond to them running around her.
I lead our young friend around the field on Fatima and Trigger. She felt very comfortable with Trigger and she rode him without our assistance. Trigger is a real gentle fellow.
We did see that Fatima has a slight dish face. You can see it a little on her profile photo. Fatima's dish is less than Trigger's dish face. That sounds funny. LOL. Fatima does not have any of the spirit or animation you usually see in Arabians.
We had a family party that evening and then went out of town to roller skate. I did skate, I stayed to myself, I skate slow. I got mowed over by a crazy person. I feel on my left hand. I had to sit out for a long time, (till I stopped shaking) Then I got my gumption up and went at it again. I would skate for a few minutes and go sit back down, because I kept feeling scared after that wreck. My sons were wanting to go knock him down. LOL. I did not allow that, but the thought was funny. My 3 sons! LOL.
Then we went to another place for laser tag and games. I did not know there was a safe place for young peopl
