We have vitually nothing to write about because it has been too cold to do much of anything with Louie for the past week. The past few days the morning temps have been -20, with highs in the single digits, and it's not looking promising for the next week or so. . .
So needless to say, Louie has not been doing any real work, but has been turned out to stretch his legs in the indoor arena a few times. He has a lot of fun out there, bucking, kicking, rolling, head-flipping Arabian style, and of course running! He's got some pretty good speed when he sets out to move! He loves to prance around at a trot, canter, or gallop. It's fun for now, just too cold to do anything else.
On a slightly more exciting note, I got a new hunt coat for myself for Christmas and it arrived today. I don't think I got the coat that I ordered, but I'm pretty happy with the one I got. It is a navy windowpane with a very subtle and fine light blue and raspberry plaid. So it isn't just plain old navy like everyone else has, it's a little lighter, and I think it will look really nice on Louie. In the next few months, I'm going to be working on putting together my hunt seat ensemble, so I'm hoping that we will be able to get to some shows next year!
