I took Tobi with me to the barn last night. Knowing that he was enjoying himself helped me to regain a little emotional balance. I also started to feel a bit more grounded in my reality (rather than the alternate one I'm being dragged into). Sorry to be so cryptic, but you never know who is reading or digging into your online life.
I also took the time to hand graze each boy in the shade. Tobi enjoys these moments as he thinks the horses are just great big friendly dogs. Fortunately, my ponies find him completely unthreatening and allow him to occasionally lick their noses and bump them with his incessantly wagging tail.
This morning I am on a mission to shelve some of my worries and enjoy riding my boys. In the afternoon, we hope to make it out to the Greek Food Festival for a late lunch. I hear the beverages are also quite good. Let the weekend's fun begin!
