Oh dear, was that cold in the morning! Yesterday's rain brought the temperature to fall very nearly 0 degrees and didn't intend to come up again for the morning classes. But, our Wallie heated us up with his solid clear round in the middle tour, qualifying him for the Small Grand Prix tomorrow :)) It was unusually busy in the morning, with 4 horses jumping after each other, which on the other hand ment „power-plaiting“ at high speed and in a row... But hey, small stuff like that can't bring us out of balance!! I have to say again and again how proud I am of our Youngsters; they just did a splendid job the two guys. It was the Finals for them today, meaning they get a well deserved break tomorrow. A tiny stupid fault kept Atomic from the jump-off, but he jumped an awsome course! Carat jumped beautiful two clear rounds finishing 6th overall. Each horse has won his ribbon to take with home, and the „oldies“ have tomorrow still a chance for one more. Since Quiara qualified yesterday already for the Grand Prix, she did some flat work today to keep her fresh and motivated for Sunday.
In the meantime even the sun came out for a perfect afternoon on a very friendly and relaxed show. Although, as I got to learn these days, the Luxembourger don't get so quickly nervous...
Everything is finished, the ponies are chewing their dinner and we will do the same soon :))
And for the perfect end of the day we got the news from at home that our dog „Slaapy“ became father!! His „girlfriend“ „Buffy“ gave birth to a babyboy and two girls :))
