Friday--longed him for about two minutes. Basically just working on canter departs. Very easy to do on the longe, just say "can-ter" and he picks it right up.
Saturday--rode briefly. I didn't really feel like riding, so just a quick walk-trot-canter-done. Although he was not picking up his left lead canter. Kept doing the usual--sitting trot into the corner, sit up tall, canter aids, and say "canter". Nothing. He was getting worked up, so we walked a bit. I was like what the heck, why not? And asked for the canter from the walk. BOOM, no problem. *eye roll* He was okay with the right lead canter. He picked it up and held it for a few strides, anyway. I wasn't feeling great, so I called it good enough and was done.
Sunday--yucky day, no riding. I did feel really guilty, though.... I do chores on Sunday, so I got my stalls done and went to bring horses in. Princess is last because he gets scared when other horses come up to the fence (*eye roll*). He and The Mare were standing in their shelter (it had been raining and snowing). So I walk down to get a couple horses. They see me, nicker, and come up to the gate, and I ignore them to get someone else. Put horses away, go out to get more. Have to pass my guys' pasture. I keep my eyes averted hoping they won't notice. They nicker and come up to the gate. I pass them by again. Poor horses.. I felt so mean!
