I woke up at 5:00 a.m. Got to work one hour early. Worked through half of my lunch period. Left on time. Mostly. Arrived home, slipped into barn clothes, made it to the barn by 4:00 p.m. Temperatures were in the lower 90s with a stiff breeze, although it was similar to what a hairdryer might emit. The horses had just been fed so I cleaned my stalls and groomed Sydney. I gave him fifteen minutes to eat and then saddled up. I had a lovely ride. I cleaned him up and turned Speedy out. He and I goofed off out in the arena until he was ready to continue his dinner. I prepared a late "lunch" for both boys, or is it now going to be dessert? Total barn time - hour and a half. Got home, prepped dinner, wrote a blog post. Cleaning lady came today so there were no household chores to do.
So far, not a bad way to return to work.
The photo is from the end of a our ride. White foamy mouth - this is a good thing, right?!
