Tonka and I didn't have such a fun ride today. I think rain makes him edgy. He wasn't listening as well. More resistant, gawking at everything. Pinning his ears too, which is annoying. He got his feet trimmed in the morning, then I rode this afternoon in the rain. Then he stood tied while I finished up with my bread dough and got back into a positive state of mind. When I went back out we did some more ground work, then had a better ride. It was raining even more by then. Got pretty wet. When I put him away he wasn't being so much of a pill. I made sure to go out this evening just to visit with him and take him a bucket with a few treats in it. I don't want him getting resentful because all I ever do is take him out for hours and torment him.
We have 3 more days of riding before Mustang Days. Hopefully we'll continue to make progress. Even if we don't, I don't think we'll completely embarrass ourselves. At least I hope not.
