It's Friday, my favourite day of the week! This weekend promises to be exciting and productive.
Tomorrow morning I am borrowing Kenny's truck and hooking it up to Claire's trailer and then Lucy and I are going to work on trailer loading. I have a game plan in mind that boils down to "no rest unless your feet are on the trailer". I think she'll get the hang of things quickly, she's a smart horse. I would eventually like to get her self-loading onto the trailer but that will take some more time.
On Sunday we are having a little photoshoot! I was approached by a local photographer to do a shoot for a local magazine cover submission, which of course is very exciting. The vision she has for the shoot is kind of a relaxed, bohemian lifestyle that showcases the relationship between horse and human. There will probably be no riding photos, only ones of Lucy and I walking together, but honestly that's fine with me because I would have needed to Ace her again if I were going to ride with no helmet. The photographer is wildly talented; last month my husband and I had a little photoshoot in Providence with her and the photos came out so nicely, so I am really excited to see the results from Sunday's shoot.

I did some research this week on colour-enhancing horsey shampoos, and picked up some Gallop shampoo for bay horses yesterday at Dover. I hope it works...it was $13 for a small bottle! SHEESH! She's gotten fairly bleached out in the past month because of how hot it has been, and also her new paddock doesn't have any shady areas in it. Has anyone tried it before?
