"This is what it is today and we will take approach A, B, or C."
That is about as exciting as I care for it to get. Yet, Phebes is what she is, and I'm aware that the outcome may not be what I wish it to be. Amazing what eight large circles at the trot can do for one's self-esteem though. Those circles represented about six hours of pre-work on the ground. I love this horse, but Phebes will likely never give me more than a passing compliance in return. Now off to work (the real job) I go.
