Wylie and I are having a marvelous time together getting to know one another. She is one of the most (if not THE MOST) straightforward youngsters I have every had the pleasure of riding. :)
Ruben and Ryan had an awesome school today over at True Prospect. He is really coming along nicely and enjoyed the warm afternoon temperatures. It is good thing that he is fully clipped --- look how sweaty he got without his winter coat!
I rode Lacey (Wallace WF) while Ryan schooled Ruben and then he jumped her a bit. She is maturing into quite the beautiful mare - so tall and elegant! :) It is very interesting to have ridden Artie (Wylie's mother's full brother and Lacey's half brother) as well as Adelaide (also out of Aly Alice)...all the siblings are similar and then you add in Waldaire and the other Waldaire offspring I get to ride -- it is a wonderful experience to see how clearly the big fellow stamps his offspring! The super work ethic, intelligence and good movement just make each and every ride a pleasure!
