sunday quickie: sand and snacks

Just a quick update bc the Orioles are playing and I gotta watch - woo hoo post season!!

Had a pretty good lesson on Saturday, all things considered. We've had a lot of rain lately and the ring was SOUP. But it wasn't particularly slippery, so that helped. All the same, tho - we were COVERED in sand afterward. Boo. 


At least sand just brushes off once it's dry...

Also- I finally got to try out the peanuts-as-horse-treat idea Alli from Pony'Tude posted about a while back. Friday night I was down by the ballpark to soak up the atmosphere, and happened to scoop up some peanuts. Literally, just got a scoop of loose nuts. 


So I spent the rest of the night w a purse full of peanuts. That's dedication folks!


However it was all totally worth it. Isabel LOVES them!! 

MOAR PLZ

Anyways, that's all for now. Will have a full recap (with many more pics and video!!) tomorrow. Happy Sunday :)

  1. This post inspired me to buy a 75c bag of peanuts at the grocery store this morning! We'll see if Henry likes them.

    1. Yea! I was skeptical too, but Allu said Dino ate them shell and all, so that's what I tried. So far each horse I've tried has enjoyed them :)

  4. So glad Is likes the peanuts!! I find them great for clicker training and stuff too because they're so easy to carry around and feed one at a time. :) Great low-sugar snack for our metabolically challenged friends. :)
