The Frog Chronicles

So, since I brag about him constantly...I figured I would take a few moments and show off his progress. We still have a ways to go but we are slowly inching our way to the goal.

I got Froggy almost exactly 2 months ago. He is a 10 year old TB that was heavily (yet unsuccessfully) raced for the last 4 years of his career. Between the auction and the Amish, he ended up at a dealers where I picked him up for a song and a dance.

He was underweight and had some boo boos from being the low man. He never was lame (and hasn't been in his time with me) and hasn't gotten sick. Our worst time so far was getting lost on a trail ride and ending up 6+ miles from home. It set back his weight gain and I feel badly about it but...it is what it is!

The first pics are of when he got here and the last pics were taken a few days ago. I think he has come a long way. He certainly acts 'healthier'...*eye roll*

Lookin' good.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

What is his career going to be? Dressage? Showing? Jumping? Lawn mower?

Of all things, I will be asking a OTTB to be a Trail horse...*laugh* We should be doing our first Judged Trail ride on May 13th. He is quite the happy hacker.
