June 11th - 8:43pm

We have internet back! Apparently it just kind of came back this morning. It's certainly been a little different living without internet (though Im happy to say it didn't change my life that much) but it is nice to be able to talk to friends and family.
Today was another long full day at Rancho Pampa. I rode Buck, Lion, Luli, Pastrocito, Jour, Cylene, Herodes, Justinian and Mauro. Also longed one if the 3 yr old colts and the young grey mare who's name I still can't say. Also did the treatment horses and cleaned almost all the bridles/equipment for all the horses worked today. Needless to say, there was no sit down time. Lunch was quick with horses waiting in the walker to go. Everyone was good though despite most having an extended vacation while we were at Pringles. Most of them got longed Saturday but besides that had Friday and Sunday off. Almost took a header off of one when she spooked, jumped and then slammed in the breaks. All the practice on sitting tight and centered paid off though. Was able to stay in the middle, regain my seat and send her forward without theatrics. Love when what you work on pays off!
Tomorrow we're running on the same schedule as today (plus trying to get to the breeding farm we didn't get to today I think) so headed to bed plenty early!

Im not sure we used enough tack today! And that wasn't even all of it! Then Walter wanted his picture taken.
