Morgan rode Zip!
Yeah, yeah, there’s still a halter on her, too, but Morgan got a little flustered getting the bridle on and finally just left the halter on along with it. She took only a short ride in circles around the barn yard, but it was a giant step forward in regaining her confidence after being bucked off Patriot. Zip was calm and wonderful, and it was a good start!
Coco is back in the goat yard part-time, daytime only. She was starting to look pretty bored in the house, and wanted to go for longer and longer walks, reluctant to go back inside. She’s doing well and is ready for some limited activity outside on her own. I have her in the goat yard by herself, just with the goats, no Chloe right now. For one thing, Chloe is a bit too rambunctious with the babies, and for another, I don’t want Coco loose in a field with another dog where she might be tempted to play too hard. Coco is still coming back to the house at night–and I might continue to bring her back to the house at night. I like having Coco in the house at night with me. It makes me feel safe. Soon enough, I’ll be able to get Chloe back to the goat yard and she can be the night-time guard for the animals. Meanwhile, Coco has finally started going up the stairs inside the house and sleeps by my bed. I like that!
I had a couple of teenagers over this weekend with weedeaters and things are looking a lot tidier around here.
