It’s Wednesday already? 

It’s Wednesday already? 

 My life is legit flashing by.  Had an interesting ride Tuesday morning. Ponyface wasn't sure he wanted a longe warmup (well skip it next ride but he doesn't make the rules here - we did 6 min) and he continued his silly stickiness at mount up.  He's not standing still during solo mounting so I [...]
