Well, this is really the time where I wish I had control. I worried myself sick over riding him today, even after she said he was sound and the farrier said he was good to go. He favored the leg a lot when just standing around.. but moved like a dream, the best ride I've had so far probably. Hopefully he actually is fine and is just a little stiff.. and hopefully, the bute doesn't harm him. That's another reason why I'm looking for a different horse other than Major.. I feel as though Laura will still take it upon herself to make choices about his well-being even if I do officially own him. :/
