Riding: I long-lined Rain in the pasture today. This was her first day being ll'd outside of the round pen and... two out of three of my other horses were loose in the field. She did really good those things considered. We did have a couple of "moments" that were a combination of Rain trying to get closer to the other horses and her not wanting to move forward and steer at the same time. With verbal encouragement (growling "get up") she pretty much got over that.
Writing: As of last night, 8276 words and 21 1/4 pages on Microsoft Word. 'Nough said, off to write today.
