I got to ride a horse!

Today was basically a very lazy day.  I did some housework and took Travis to church.  I was very lethargic and tired.  I layed down for a while and then got up and took Sarah and Dave up to where Dave's Mom keeps her horse.  His name is Mac and he is a Paint horse.  He is brown and white with some black.  We brought him in and brushed him and she saddled him up.  Sarah rode for about 20 minutes and even got to trot!  She did really well.  Becky led Mac around, Sarah didn't actually do it herself.  Then I got a turn!  She wanted to know if she wanted me to lead Mac, but I said no because I had had lessons before.  So Mac and me rode around the arena for a while and I had him trot a bit.  It was nice to see that I remembered how to post to the trot.  The saddle was too small for me however and I don't think Mac was used to carrying such a heavy load!  Becky is very small.  I had a nice time however and Becky was pleased that Mac got a work out.  She said I looked good riding him, like I knew what I was doing.  Of course I am now full of horse lust again and want to have one.  I've never owned a horse before, its always been a dream of mine. 

Work was good last night.  There weren't enough monitors to go around so I had to do my own wagons!  I think I did a good job and really had fun!  Next week we go Thursday thru Sunday!  I have to work the weekend so its going to be hard I think.  I only have 1 1/2 hrs in between jobs so there is no time to rest.  Just go home and eat and change.  I give myself a half hour to get there.  I wouldn't mind trying haunting either some night if they need someone to.  Ok I'm tired and going to bed.  Here is another great snag from Sugar!

Oh I love paints, we have a black & white paint.  "Horse lust", that is cute.  I'm glad you had a chance to ride it surely sounds like you loved it.  I used to ride all the time, I miss it ~ Flash is just getting too old and now with his going blind...well need I say more.  :(   Your job sounds like a blast, doesn't sound like "work".  Have fun.

Some days are like that, you just have to give it up and lay down for a bit...I feel so much better when I do give in and take a rest. Glad you got out and had a good time. I think every girl, and woman dreams of having a horse. Its a female thang...lol.
