I got to the barn on Tuesday night intending to run through 1-2, but then I realized the following:
1. It was 60 degrees, and would be below freezing pretty much forever after Tuesday.
2. It was windy/stormy/the indoor was creaking like crazy.
3. I'd have to share the indoor with a random beginner lesson.
4. Connor's mane was approaching Thelwell status.
On the one hand, it felt lazy to pull his mane and chat with one of the barn rats and listen to the rain on the roof for an hour instead of riding. On the other, it had to be done sometime before the show on the 14th and this was my last chance to do it without frozen fingers.
And sometime it's just nice to stand there and feed him cookies every so often for an hour instead of making him do stuff.
