Gracie's going to the trainer!

Next week! We are dropping her off next saturday. I'm excited big time right now. Julie our trainer is excited too because she never get's to work with draft's anymore. She grew up with belgian's and they used them on the farm for riding and work but it's been a few year's since then. She told me that she wished more people would get interested in riding the giant's and that we'll be ambassador's for the area. Lol Told you she was excited. Grace has been naughty though. Just after we brought her home she pawed my bro in law on the rear when he turned away with the grain. She didn't think she was done I guess. And last week she kicked my wife. She was separating the horses and walked behind Grace to stop some horses coming up the lane behind her. She reached out and touched Grace on the butt and kaaapowwww! Knocked her off her feet and everthing. I'm hoping she thought it was another horse and was protecting herself and the hay she was eating. Grace get's impatient fast and Julie will have her work cut out for her. I'm still excited though!

Whoa!! That must have been scary! How's your wife? Hope the training goes well, she's a beautiful girl.

Wife's fine, thanks for asking. Just some bruising not to bad. I mean it was only a belgian not a clyde! Lol Grace has been at the trainer for two weeks and she's being ridden in the arena at a walk and a trot. And also now at a walk outside. The trainer did mention that at times she's so soft in the mouth but occasionally she'll grab the bit and go? It's a eggbutt snaffle, do you think this will be an ongoing issue or will she get better with time? Thanks for all and any advice in advance.
