#100mphwindatthebarn

Round 1 fam pictures wind nasty wind, last night was 100 times worse!
 
Headed to the barn last night after work.. took B with me cause she wanted to come.

The wind was howling and pretty nasty.. ok I have never been in wind that bad ever in my life, it was pushing me over and I couldn't stand still/against it- crazy. I left B in the barn cause it was so windy and dark it wasn't safe for her to come with me.

I got Henry and as I was coming into the barn the 2 people that were there were leaving... so B and I were alone, lovely.

I opted to lunge since Henry was HIGH and no one was around. Groomed, booted up and headed out to the round pen- nasty wet slop greeted up so I went inside. Turned the lights on and got to work.

Started by the open side of the arena but Henry was loosing his marbles (I've never seen him be this looney) so I went to the other half of the arena. He was still SO jumpy but not in a way that was dangerous.


Burnt off some steam and got him out and moving which was the goal.

Cooled him off, groomed, hock booted and grained while I leaned up.

Hubby showed up as we were about to take Henry back to his stall. I ended up letting the hock boots marinate a little longer and hubby did this...







Swept the whole half of our barn- it looked beautiful when he was done!

Took Henry home, gave him his extra hay, grained Louie, gave kisses and headed out.

I might be able to sneak in a hack tonight and lesson tomorrow. We shall see :)

  2. Good job Hubby! Wind is the worst. I can usually deal with the cold better than the wind.
