Ok, Ok, As Promised!

I know I keep promising updates and failing to deliver. My latest excuse is that my work schedule has changed. I'm now working 10-7, which is better in some ways and worse in others. I'm still adjusting, and trying to figure out what I can fit in during the morning hours before I go to work.

I have a couple more photos (albeit crappy cell phone ones) from last week's morning session with Halo. The first picture cracks me up - she's giving me a look that says, "what the heck are you doing here so early, Mom?"

I expected her to be spunky first thing in the morning, but she was actually pretty laid back. Her longe session was brief because she was so relaxed and responsive. I got on her for a few minutes and we worked on walking. She's gotten a little balky now that she knows what I want her to do, so we've been working on maintaining constant forward motion. I'm not fussing with her too much about direction yet, though I ask her to stay in some semblance of a circle around the pen.

I know her mane looks horrid right now. It is in the middle of growing out from the last awful haircut. We were planning on our first show August 8th, but since vet bills waylaid that plan, she gets to stay her scruffy self for now.

Shoot, I'd be ecstatic if Poco's mane would lie down like that.
