The weather was perfect today. 71 ish with a lovely breeze and sunny. I rode Rio in the front pasture for a change of scenery and it was just gorgeous.
Trainer and I decided to put Rio and some of the other horses on that Equine Omega Complete supplement, and I can tell a huge difference in his coat. It is still long for winter, but super shiny and soft.
Anyway, nothing too exciting about our ride, it was just an easy hack. I have noticed that Rio has NO desire to gallop lol, he’d be a terrible eventer. I encouraged a bit of a gallop for some fun and he was not having it, it was actually pretty comical.
After our ride I decided to give Rio a bubble bath and just dote on him awhile. He seemed to enjoy it, and afterwards I didn’t feel like waiting for him to dry before letting him back out into the pasture with his buddy, George. I foolishly thought that if I put his fly sheet back on he wouldn’t roll. How wrong I was!
I feel like this was straight up revenge for either the bath, or for trying to get him to gallop ?.
As I was pulling out the drive I couldn’t help but stop and snap a few pics of Rio and George, his newest bestie.
All and in all, a great day at the barn!
