The two biggest plans:
1) Sell Benny - I plan to list him in March. It's crazy to think that I only have 2 more months with him before that time.
2) Start Emi - I'm beyond excited for this one. This one hinges on when I sell Benny. Most likely we will start having training sessions with KB in March or April. Once her ground work is complete we'll begin riding.
|From baby girl to big girl. How did that happen so fast!?|
Beyond "start Emi" I have a whole other subset of plans for her. Once Benny sells she'll take his spot at NDF. Besides the first four months of her life this will be the first time I'm not taking care of her morning and night. It's going to be strange (and a little sad) to not have her at home anymore but she will be in excellent hands. Poor Rozzy Ridge is also going to be sad.
If all is going well with her training we have a show on the calendar for the beginning of August. It's the Oregon Welsh show that will be held less than an hour away from where we live. I'd love to be able to show her in the walk/trot riding classes. I feel like that's a reasonable goal although we have a lot to get done in the next 9 months.
We are also going to work on her driving training and possibly have her pulling a cart by the end of the year. This one is the most tentative since I have no driving experience and would have to get a cart and everything to make this one happen. The thing I do like about this goal is it would help us have some variety in our work which I think would be good.
No matter what actually happens (or what the time frame is) there are sure to be a lot of changes in 2016. I'm so excited!!!
