1. My dog is doing pretty well. I don't want to say anything more out of fear of jinxing him.
2. My new year's resolution: ride each of my horses at least 4 times a week ("each" includes Princess and The Mare, not my old guy). I rode them both Tuesday and Wednesday. Friend (the one who rode him the very first time) rode Princess on Tuesday. This will be our tradition: she rides him once a year on New Year's Day. More on this later. I need to ride today and tomorrow. Although I might allow myself 3 rides this week because it's only a 5 day week.
3. River has been a very bad boy. Like, seriously bad. He's-in-trouble bad. If-he-doesn't-shape-up-he's-going-to-need-a-new-place-to-live bad. He's being very bad coming in at night. Last week he was rearing and striking out at the person leading him. Color me totally shocked. I know he can be a little dumb sometimes, but that behavior is totally unacceptable. So he's starting on SmartCalm Ultra probably tonight and I've talked to a couple of the barn people about him. He's been better this week *knock on wood*.
