Hey, forgot to mention.....I learned something last night.

Yesterday when I rode, JayJay was looking around again (yes good) but was also a bit spooky. For whatever reason, I think the feel, but I continued to wonder if I had placed my saddle too far forward. I have trouble on him, as his withers are SO large and long.

So I got on You Tube and looked at various 'How to saddle your horse' videos....I know sound elemetnary, and I've saddled many a horse...but something wasn't right.A week or so ago, I placed my saddle a bit further back..don't know why, and he rode PERFECT! I think that is what got me thinking...

What I learned was that if a horse is uncomforatable undersaddle, I.e. Being pinched or whatnot...he may tend to see 'ghosts' or 'monsters' where he hadn't before.... Maybe that is/was the issue....

Today, while he was in his stall, I felt for his scapula, or shoulder bone. It was suggested to place the saddle behind the bone for free movement. I know I had it to forward. Looking forward to trying a new placement.

Funny...he has white spots on his shoulders from misplaced saddles of previous owners. The white spots are well onto his scapulas, where they tell you not to place the saddle.

Anyway...thought I would pass on this info...I love learning new things!

OH, and for your viewing pleasure....this is from today's visit.

CS - ya know...could he have been kicked by another horse? I remember my horse kicked another one, and BOOM, instant bump just like that one! Just another thought......

I thought of that except there is not a single mark at all.. either way it is there and I will treat it if no change or it gets worse Ill call the vet out.

Try rubbing his bum down with Listerine. It is great for sore muscles and will feel great to them after a long ride.

Looks like I'll be going to work on the Dually this evening if nothing changes between now and the time I get home. Going to take the water heater out there and drop it off too. If I'm unable to get it going by Friday then my friend with a 30' gooseneck trailer said he would come out and help me load it to take to my house to be easier to work on.

Going to visit the horses before I head over so will try to remember to get pics.

Just stopping in for a few minutes. Been out in the heat all day shopping and getting in hay. Very exhauseted but I have the truck to pack as we are leaving early tommorrow for our camptrip. As usual I am camping in monsoon season, but I prefer it to the dry period before which is so much worse since the drought started. We a riding no matter what so I have so much extra packed so I have dry things, my dogs have dry things, my horse has dry things..... The first two days should be clear, its the last three with forecasted rain with the last day being the worst. We may pack up and leave that day instead of the next morning.
