Well, I'm not working on anything with Key. Went to my comp weekend before last, loaded up in the freezing cold and dark, drove 2 hours, unloaded, plaited up (my best ever effort too), went to pick out Key's feet and found a hot, puffy leg. Had to withdraw from the comp.
Fast forward to today, leg looks normal so I take her to our lesson, only to find that she's still not right. So we are off to the vet to get to the bottom of it. Not feeling particularly optimistic about it to be honest. I have a sinking feeling that she's done a suspensory.
Rhett on the other hand is rehabbing brilliantly, all back issues seem to have resolved and his hind quarters is much more even. So we are allowed to canter in straight lines, and we can add shallow loops and 20m circles in trot. Might not sound like much, but for the last 2 months or more all I've been able to do with him is straight lines in walk and trot. He feels like he has 7 legs in canter, but it will improve as he remembers how his legs go :)
I'm hoping by the end of august I can have him out doing a prelim test.
Clava, I'm not really a fan of hairy horses (I ride a friesian though, go figure lol), but Gilda is lovely! I love how white her mane and tail is!
