Once I got to the barn, I tacked Lilly up and went for a quick ride. We worked on bending and collecting. Can never have to much of that. We have also have been working on simple changes, hopefully soon we will get a flying....
Most of the mares were switched to the back field where there is plenty of grass so the regular mare's field could get a rest. Lilly was one who was kept in the old field :( Sometimes she can be hard to catch for some people, and we don't want her to founder on all that grass. The days that I go ride in the pm, she can go out with the rest of the mares because she always comes to me.
I have another long day at work tomorrow, but TGIS.....the weekend is almost here and I can go play in the mud!

I started working on her feathers....Goodness does she have feathers. I took most of it off the front, but I left a little near her pastern because she hasn't perfected giving me her hoof.
I have been worried about the condition of her hooves. She has been getting a hoof supplement for the past month. Today I also got a new hoof ointment that I hear is pretty good called Effol from Germany. It is made in the same factory that human cosmetics are made. So it must have great ingredients in it. I cleaned her hooves when we were finished and applied it to her hoof walls.
