I was planning to go out and ride a few moments ago and when I looked out my window and saw this I knew my riding must wait. Steady the faithful herd leader rarely ever lays down and takes a nap. He will if he is in a stall but out in the feild with the other horses I have seen him lay down maybe 4 times. The first time I completely freaked and thought for sure he was colicking. Then felt terrible when I realized I just disturbed is rest. Today I will let him have his time sun bathing before I make my way out for a ride on this beautiful fall day.
Todays plan for the ride will be just getting him loosened up laterally, some jumping and a gallop through the field.
