My absence has been intentional, I am struggling to decide what to write. I have not been in a good head space this month which has been reflecting in my riding. Poor Sam he has been trying so hard but I am giving mixed signals so he acting out - fair enough too.
I would like to go on a quiet trail ride with a quiet calm horse but I can't even achieve that at the moment. Things will work themselves out and I don't blame Sam - even though he is up on his toes, he is patient with me and I thank him for that.
One problem I am finding with our new addition - Poppy is the separation anxiety Sam now has. When they are in the same paddock he is horrible to her but when she is on the other side of the fence heaven forbid if she goes out of sight! I take her for walks in the afternoon and Sam goes crazy. Works himself into a lather of sweat, screaming for her. I am hoping he will soon get used to it but it seems to be getting worse!
Things will sort themselves out and life will become easier in time.
