We had our first board meeting this morning. It was good. Everyone on the board and the volunteers seems so enthusiastic and full of ideas. well, everyone but me.
Afterward was even better. We went to Spirit so I could meet the new horse, the one I'll be riding SOON.
Louie was great, even if he did bite me. I was trying to feed him carrots but I have problems opening my hand completely and when I did the carrot would fall off. Louie got tired of waiting for me to get it right and started scrounging around. He decided the back of my glove look good enough to eat and so he tried.
I was in a part of the field the horses don't go but of course Claren found the one little pile of poop to eat. But back to Louie.
He didn't look too tall or big, but he is very wide. Kate said he is so comfortable to ride and is very mannerly. What I noticed mostly is how hairy he was. It wasn't ugly or messy, and as it was about 30 degrees out and windy, I certainly did not begrudge him his coat. In fact, I was jealous.
We are still on track to start riding in a few weeks.

I am still not riding and miss it, but things are happening. We are planning the first board meeting of Spirit, there is a new horse at Spirit, I joined the U.S. Equestrian Foundation, and I learned a little more about this competition we hope I can join. It is at Morven Park in May.
The new horse is an 18-year-old Morgan with dressage experience. Louie is the brown one; Spirit is the whiteish one.
I am getting pretty excited. February (when riding will probably start up) can't come soon enough.
