All about Alex.

Another full day of amazing work… 

Yesterday was all about Alex.  He’s totally adjusted to his full clip…thanks Dawn!  I wanted to get him in the upper ring with all the big boys but just as we were headed over, the sprinklers were started.  Today he’ll be up there.  He still had to concentrate as everyone from the upper ring headed over to the covered to finish off.  He did great!  

Alex

His saddle is fitting wonderfully thanks to Kevin Lote at Regal Saddles.  He has a new saddle and is such a sensitive  horse, it took several fittings to get it right and right it is now!!!  

Alex

He sleeps all afternoon.  I think he’s still recovering from the trip and all the changes.  Another couple of days and he’ll be back to full power!

Sun is shining, footing is wonderful, horse is great…I love my job!

The wrap up of a great lesson. 

Dinner with the girls.

The girls were visiting from home…dinner at Jake’s in Del Mar. 

From the truck window.

The view each morning, headed south on the 15, ten minutes from the stables. 

Time to head out…may have rain today but the sun is up and it should hold off till later afternoon.

    This is the best blog to date! Love the pictures… Alex is almost as photogenic as Linds!

    p.s. notice how it doesn’t matter who the blog is about, there is a picture/comment or 2 about Lance? do I sense a certain favouritism?

    Okay, I don’t know a lot about these fancy ponies, but it is quite obvious to me that the regal Alex desperately misses his owner, and hasn’t got a clue why he’s been sentenced to carting “what’s -er-name” around on his back while Carol suns her buns in Maui… I’d be careful gettin’ back on ’em Carol – he could be using this “down time” to plan his revenge.. Glad the saddle’s working out… (it’s all part of the plan…)

  4. What a yummy horse ….and how I love his uphill frame and engagement behind!
