So some of you know of my 4 yr olds journey of a messed up ear. Well its been about 3 weeks since I've ridden him, I've taken him out and bathed/messed with him a little but other then that he hasn't been out. On top of that I've been getting the horse I am running this sunday and next saturday shaped up and refreshed as he hasn't been out in about a month and it was a last minute decision lol.
Well today I decided I'd get him out as I do have him listed and need to keep him tuned up and work out a few more kinks. I was expecting a hyper but hesitant baby, what I got was a slightly forward and tight (on his bad ear side) muscled boy. Worked with him for about an hour and had him take off (nothing dangerous) twice but he came right back and by the time we were done he was really using his booty and almost slide stopping.
For being so young and with such a sketchy background he always amazes me. His only downfalls are he likes to yank his feed out of the feeder and he is a little tough to bend on his bad ear side. He makes me wish I had loads of time to get him running because I honestly think he would make a kick butt little barrel horse for someone wanting to run 3D-4D.
His ear is looking sooooo much better and the 'knot' is almost unnoticeable :].
