    I am not sure there is a point to even keep updates here, but I will give it another try. Or maybe I need my journal? Even though I get a lot of pictures here too :P

    Anyway, we had farrier day yesterday, Teddy does fantastic, as he has done all his life, Grand is still learning.
    Last time 2 months ago, he was trying to kick, fall, not stand and all other things.. but we got his feet trimmer. (no, we could not wait till he was trained to stand as the hooves were breaking badly when we got him)
    Then, I cannot train him to give me hind feet alone, as we have nowhere to tie safely at the moment, so we need 2 people, but Teddy's owner always cannot be bothered to work with Grands feet.. and maybe risk getting kicked. Ok, I can understand him, he has to work etc, but its kinda his horse too...
    But I worked with complete acceptance of my ruling in this house, Grand follows me like a puppy dog, listens to me, does what I ask. We can rise front legs with a tap of the stick, hind don't work like that yet, but I can touch him with a stick everywhere I want.. there is not a single spot were he will try to shove me away.
    So yesterday, at first he said "Nop, leave me alone, I don't want this man near my feet!"
    2 seconds later first front leg is up, and everything is happening. The farrier says he holds his legs quite nicely, lets him do the job, and there arent any problems. We put some antibiotics finally in his sore spot on the fetlock, but its almost gone anyway.. so in a few months on a healthy horse such spots heal even when you cannot get the medicine there (cannot get it there because its the blind hindleg and he is a bit wary about pain and people touching it)

    So everything is great.
    Need to ride today :) and take more pictures

    No more pictures lately, as I have been running around with guests and friends, but it's always a nice feeling when you can go outside, go to the fence, and the horses come to you, and yours even says hello - sometimes he neighs sometimes just makes the other deeper sounds, that I forgot the name for
    And they both come to greet me.. its so nice.. and they LOVE hugs, they could stand there all day..

    Previously all horses I worked for were never that keen on human contact, I guess it could have been because they were stalled most of the time... these live outside all the time, the pasture is big enough, with lots of things to do, and even when Teddy sees me putting the tack out to get ready to work, he stands by the gate and waits :) He likes it :)

    Even though now I really need to make a flat arena, as the ground is too uneven, and work him on the lunge a lot, as he apparently has too little muscle and balance to work a canter right.... :/ so slightly put back, but we will get through it, just need to get a proper place to work in first.. a lot of groundwork will be good for him, some light riding for me, mainly trot with bending and poles..
    A few small jumps along the way and we are still on the way to our aims.. this little horse will still show his potential.. :)

    They are really sweet, today I made a quick "round pen" to make them work a little off the lungeline.. and they were very curious about what we are doing there, came for a lot of hugs, and Grand was waiting with my friend, checking her out whilst I worked with Teddy
