Well, the bumps haven't disappeared from Kes's back, but they are itchy, not painful as I thought. We put a saddle pad over it when we used the surcingle today, and after they didnt seem so bad? Weird. I also got to try my hand at long lining today, it's actually harder than it looks! My horse sitter, who is the apprentice at my barn, is a fabulous horsewoman and is teaching me to long line. Kes does amazingly in the lines. Will post a pic soon.
Tomorrow we meet and ride for our farrier, so he can assess and start building Kes's show shoes, which will be what we actually will show in next month. Spendy little suckers, but can't wait to see how she moves after they are finished and put on next week. We will pull them after we show, of course...unless the show gods smile down on us and we some how place well and qualify for Grand Nationals in OKC. :) A girl can dream, right?
Texas - congrats to you and your hubby, the new horses are so very pretty, I bet he was thrilled with his new boy!
CW - HOORAY for the new barn and lessons! You are going to LOVE the lessons, and how you can see improvement week after week.
Fox - I can so sympathize with the greys and the depression that goes along with it. Here in Washington we have almost the same weather as the UK, somehow we are in a string of nice weather, but the rains will be back soon. We don't tan here, we mold.
