Just saying......I lunged Snickers yesterday, and her trot is smoother, not all clunky. I'm sure to other people she probably still looks pretty goofy, but to me, the one who obssesses over her movement daily, it looks better! I'm hoping it is not an illusion.
I took her on a trail ride the day before....about 2-3 miles total. At one point she spooked at a squeaky tree and ran up the side of a berm with me...about ten feet up. On this berm, it is narrow and nowhere for me to really even jump off without hitting the slope of it. I figured we would end up tumbling down it together, so I took my legs out of the stirrups to prevent her crushing my legs if she fell. She kind of hesitated, as if she was assessing her ability and the predicament she got us into, and slowly went down the side of the berm sideways just fine.
I am happy to say that both of my horses are eating their high fat diet just fine now. I can get half of the fat in them with oil...the other half is a combo of the Omega Horseshine and their TC Senior and Ration Balancer. I'm still waiting for the Cool Cal to come in. I would like to replace some of the Omega if I can since it is so expensive. I'm going to start fine tuning now and hopefully normalizing my routine....yay!
Desert.....I don't know if I can wait a month to video yet......How about a week if I still see the improvement?!!!!!! I'm so excited, but trying not to get ahead of myself.
