The hot weather has hit! 
We were in the mid 30s (C) for a couple days. That made working horses in the round pen (no shade) very warm. The one day we worked 4 horses. My brain was close to exploding from learning to communicate with them and I was pretty tired physically. 

Riding in the mountains!

Sandra and I have been riding as well. It's lots of fun and the countryside is so beautiful! 

Sandra on Izzy in a field of daisies!
We have been dealing with the usual cuts and scrapes. Frankie seems to get cut a lot. Three times in two weeks. His last cut was a pretty good one so he is in the barn healing. 

I absolutely love the barn!
I think my favorite part of cleaning in the morning is the barn! I clean the stalls, put in fresh sawdust, and then sweep the aisle. I can play my music and just have a lot of fun! 

The manure wagon. 

Maggie is a fun horse to work with! We did the whole session with out a halter. I guess the tarp is not too big of deal! 

"Perhaps I should eat it, or pull it off!"

"What?! I wasn't doing anything!"

Now it's on the halter!

With the flag on the saddle as well!

Very nice!
