So, to play a little catch up here: I had predicted the RRO to come out Friday evening. Instead, it came out at 11:00a on Saturday. At that time, I had been out to feed Daisy, and then I got Tyler's bike (Tyler is my son) fixed to where he could ride it. So, I missed the RRO to be with my kiddos - as I told the folks on the eTopps boards - I believe I won that trade-off! :-)
So, Thursday and Friday, Emily spent the day with me at work again. She was the hit of the day with my co-workers! Of course, that meant having no time to pop in here and update my blog, but that's okay, too.. :-)
Saturday, like I said, I fixed Tyler's bike. Late in the afternoon, we got Daisy out and everyone took turns riding her. I took her out into the cow pasture and rode her around, including making her climb a few steeper areas - mainly to see how she would react to the different terrain. She did great! :-) I still have to work on making her run faster... That is more my own issue than hers... I haven't mastered the whole 'rhythm' thing when riding at faster speeds... :-)
After we all rode for a couple hours and then Emily and I gave Daisy a bath. She loved the cool water and never flinched as I sprayed her off and washed her down. She was pretty dirty so i have no idea when the last time she had been bathed! After that, Emily and I fed turned her out and fed her, then refilled her water tub.
Today (Sunday), we gave Daisy a break since we rode her pretty hard yesterday between all of us that rode (Me, Emily, Shan, Shan's Mom, Shan's Dad, Shan's Sister and Brother-in-Law). Plus, the weather here has been thundering with some lightning... Tonight, it is raining some...
