Just before we left the house to wait for Casper my bareback pad arrived on the doorstep! It was supposed to be delivered a few days later! Even mom was surprised.
When we arrived at the barn I watched Kaila and Danique prepare Cruz for his first ride. Everything went well and all the prep work Kaila did paid off.
A bit later, Danique gave me a gift bag for Casper! She said it was from everybody. In it was a girth, stud muffins and a bottle of show sheen. Danique even said she would do a photo shoot of Casper! We agreed that the best time would be when he lost his winter coat.
Kaila showed me my spot in the tack room. I had lots of fun arranging his stuff just so.
Every time I heard a car drive by I would run to the road to see if it was Casper. Eventually Marsha drove up with the trailer. I could see Casper's ears in the window.
We unloaded Casper and have him some water. Then I took him to the outdoor arena to stretch his legs.
