Tuesday I had my last field ride with Zoe. There were some x-rails set out that we worked over, and I ended up giving Anna and Phoenix a little lesson. I've been pleasantly surprised with how sound Phoenix has been and he looked great working out on the grass.
Yesterday it started raining, so we brought all the ponies in for the winter. Luckily I only had to do a half day at work, so I was able to make it out to the barn by 1 to bring them in. Phoenix and Zoe were utterly offended at being out in the rain. Both of the trotted up to the gate to come in and Zoe was nickering the whole time. Buddy could have cared less and seemed offended that he was left in. I put coolers on all of them for a couple hours and gave each a pile of hay. We got a new load of timothy this week, and it's super rich. I'm slowly starting to wean them on it so hopefully no one gets colicky!
Once I had their coolers on, I realized that I have bought the boys matching black ones with blue trim. Wasn't my intention and I'm slightly embarrassed.
