    I feel your pain with your horse being OUT of the game, as mine is as well. Sorry to hear that!

    Nice 3rd time through the pattern on that Appy. Not bad at all!

    Ugh..Poor Copper..She's probably not too happy about being at the vet's.

    He's cute enough to be full of himself. I mean, how can you resist his little face?? And even if he is a little **** in training you know you like it..

    I'm SO SORRY about your horses who are convalescing!! **hugs**
    Prayers for quick and COMPLETE recovery. Now, I'll know who to ask questions if I ever get another absess, which we all KNOW can happen to ANY of us with a random nail or other.
    Glad you're making lemonade out of the lemons.
    Again, prayers for recovery. =D

    I rode Rooster last night. His owner warned me that he could be really hot, so I took it slow. Alot of walking and trying to loosen him up. Rope horses are stiff I'm coming to find out.
    Finally was able to lope him on a loose rein so I walked the pattern. He's done them before just not correctly. According to his owner he has a bad diving issue.
    After trotting through and really emphasizing trotting past the barrel and rocking on his hicks and completing his turn...I let him lope through. He's a quick little thing! His 1st was good....no diving at the 2nd but he didn't complete his turn well. 3rd was flawless.
    I could tell he was getting on the muscle so we walked through several times....went to the left barrel first....did the pattern backwards and that really helped. I was very proud of how calm he was staying so I quit him on that.

    He's about 14.1.....Mr San Peppy and Doc O Lena bred....it feels weird to be on a short horse LOL.
    I'm riding him again this evening but not on the pattern.....slow work on supple exercises this evening.

    Here's a pic


    I also have my First Down Dash gelding home....he worked great too. It was weird going from him ( 16 hands) to Rooster LOL

    I took Rooster to a jackpot yesterday to exhibition him....He did great!
    He was a little looky...but I was proud of how calm he stayed. Our 2nd still needs a little work but all in all Im pleased with how he's coming along.
