This photo is not of Reggie, not of a coyote, and it's not even my photo. But you get the idea. We decided that horse vs coyotes could only end badly, so the paddock is now off-limits to the horses in the evening. That works, because the paddock needs a rest. It's not over-grazed, it's over-played.
We had a warm week, and the pastures thawed and dried out. The footing was good enough to ride! It was wonderful to ride again. Paj was soft and forward and relaxed. What a good boy after all that time off! Boomer was very good too. I was excited about getting back to regular work, and of course it's snowing today.
