Danielle and I at Braun's.
Rob and Ramon
For the second Wednesday in a row, Rob and Ramon both came up to the barn. Rob's really catching on to how things work around the barn. He gets Tyler out of the stall, in the cross ties, and grazes Tyler during is cool down after working. Tyler and I did a lot more work on our test. Then Rob rode! I was quite impressed with Tyler and Rob. Rob caught on quickly to steering, but not so much on how to move Tyler forward. They walked over poles, trotted a few steps, did some simple patterns, and called it a day. Tyler's super careful with new riders and I think it's adorable.
Me trying to keep up with Rob and Tyler.
Thursday was my last opportunity at home to work on the test. I wasn't thrilled with Tyler's movements, but we knew our test and I felt good about that. Thankfully it was a peaceful evening with the work crew. We played cards for a few hours. So I shouldn't say it was a peaceful or quiet evening, but it was laid back. I think 5 or 6 of us sat around. Some drink, some don't. We know each other well enough that we can have real fun. It's a great dysfunctional traveling family.
