Had a busy day...
So I went to go look at a pleasure prospect today, was very excited because he is bred the way I want and seemed cute from the pics. But went I went to see him and he was over at the knee and very long and weak pasterns in front, he just seemed really wonky on his front end.... total bummer. Also really small, 14 hands maybe at almost 3 years old. Passed on him.
Came home and my horses were at the far end of the pasture. Left home about 20 minutes later and my mare was still in the same spot right at the fence-line. Left my truck on the road and cut across the neighbors pasture to check on her, and found she had one leg caught in the field fencing. She let me work her free and seemed no worse for wear, so I was really lucky.
Got home too late to ride, but have my first lesson tomorrow and am really excited about it.
