I made good on my "walking only" today. How? Bareback pad. *giggle* Another windy howly day today, but I didn't let it stop us.
We walked around the arena for 20 minutes, no warm up, all at the walk. I let Harley mostly decide where to go. It was a meandering wander, for sure. I asked him for turns on forehand/haunches, and some brief back-up. All went well. Yeah, I probably could've asked for more, but I didn't. It seemed like a good day just to wander on him, and let that be our time together.
When I was icing his leg, he also got snuggly. I was rubbing on him, scratching itchies, while he was licking me. Literally. Licking my arms and hands, and he tried licking my face before I moved. He stood great again for the 10 minute icing. The swelling looked a little smaller today, not as mushy.
Tonight, my thoughts and prayers are with the families and the injured in Boston. What a senseless tragedy. All kinds of "why" and "who dun it" come to mind, and I'm sure that's for another day. It was nice to see mass-media address it as a terrorist attack and not some "random event" like they did Benghazi. Extra hugs and snuggles for all your loved ones tonight.
