I have a lot to write about, but right now, I’m exhausted and coming down with a cold/flu/virus of some sort that has sapped most of my energy. That didn’t keep me from going to the barn today (especially where I’m house sitting up north), but as I’m coming down off of the “barn high”, I’m realizing that maybe that wasn’t such a hot idea.
Regardless, I wanted to share that after six solid weeks of ground work, I sat on my horse today. He didn’t explode. He didn’t spin away. He sat underneath me, and though he tensed briefly, there was no panic in his posture. I was on top of him for maybe 30 seconds, but that was 30 quiet seconds that we hadn’t had before. I got off, and cried into his neck, because I was so proud of him.
More later, once I’ve forced myself to eat something and crawled into bed.
|I yanked my 50mm f/1.8 out today. It’s a difficult lens to work with and it’s not very forgiving, but I really loved this shot 🙂|
