Today Would Have Been a Good Day…

…to ride Lindy.  She was calm while I groomed her.  She was mostly calm except for a few wild woman head tosses when I round penned her (and that was just because the side rein buckle and the stirrup were clinking together.  It was kind of legitimate).  She had moments of being soft and round after I attached the side reins.  She wanted to come in and be with me in the middle and followed me right to the mounting block.  There’s even new sand in the round pen so it’s nice and soft (not that I plan on landing in it, but, you know…).

So why didn’t I get on?  Five reasons:

5. no work in four days for Lindy

4.  no video camera

3.  no digital camera

2.  no support crew

and number 1. a  baby in the baby carrier

While some people have asked me if I am going to ride with The Kid in the carrier, I don’t think they meant Lindy.  I also think they were just kidding.  And if they weren’t kidding, I have decided it would be unwise.

So maybe Easter/Lindy’s birthday will still be the day.  Unless I’m feeling it tomorrow.  Tomorrow might be an even better day too.
