Spring Back

It was almost spring for a week or so.  It was spring long enough that it rained and the front lawn began to green.

Then it snowed yesterday.  Oops. 

I went to the barn anyway.  I got on the mare and realized that there may be an issue.  She was quite tense and a little anxious.  Then I realized that there was snow sliding off the roof.  The plus side is that I wasn't tensing up while hearing the snow, so perhaps the mare's reaction was less, but still there was a reaction. 

So I got off and lunged her for a few minutes and put her brain back into check.  She did reasonably well after this, so I decided to end on a good note before more snow decided to make it's appearance.

I also went ahead and ordered a few older show photos of the filly.

So here she is in all her old weird baby glory.

    1. LOL! I need more comparison there. The first 2 photos were taken in a photoshoot taken on the show grounds by the show photographer, but not in the ring. :) The ring shots were typical horse-on-triangle shots.
