I got some new hay on Friday and it's really nice. It's a fescue/orchard grass mix and it smells delicious. I got 10 bales to try before getting a trailer load and AJ loves it. He also has pure orchard grass hay with some red clover in it, but I just got the fescue. From what I've read, fescue is the least nutritious of the hays, but if AJ will actually eat the fescue with gusto, I think I'm better off with fescue. Lilly eats anything (oink) and since she's not a broodmare (who would want to pass on those genes anyway?), we should be good.
AJ has also been banned from the mare pasture as he was enjoying Baby a little too much, if you know what I mean... I don't need him getting kicked. So he's back in with the other geldings. He was very sad today, but it's his own darn fault.
Speaking of Baby, I rode her yesterday morning and she could very easily be my dream horse. She's western pleasure trained and is so much fun to ride! I have to wear spurs, though, and use them or she totally ignores your leg. M kept saying, "Use your spur!!" It feels weird to actually use a spur, and I'm definitely not used to having to put that much leg on a horse. She said I'm welcome to ride her whenever I want and when it's time to start riding Lilly again we can ride together and she'll help me work with Lilly to get her to slow down.
So I have a temporary horse to ride that will spoil me to death. Super! :)
