Thanks! I'll definitely check those out. Trooper's owner (who is also the barn owner) suggested Old Mac G2s, and I've been looking at the new EasyBoot Glove Back Country. So many choices, it's kind of hard to make a decision. I definitely want something compact, lightweight, easy to put on, and something that will stay on. I'm just so glad he's sound, I missed riding him. Hopefully he feels the same

A photo of Patches.
She is 39 years and still moving well. She is the horse that got me interest and Roslyn's first horse. She was retired to a friends farm a year or so ago when Kate arrived. A bit more math, that puts her closer to 40 years and has been brought out of retirement. It was felt as she has not showed any signs of distress caused by age. (some of us here know what I am referring to) She has been given to the riding for the disabled to use, and it would give the remaining years some meaning. She will be used for kids so no heavy weights on her. (I was only 24 and change when she was borne)

On the note of heavy weights. Our friends daughter is mentally impared, a very tall girl 6 ft plus change and well over 120 kgs. I had to say no to her continuing riding Stella recently. Its not that she is to big for Stella its the way she mounts.

I was very rearly at home when they would visit but on this ocassion saw the result. When she mounts she is so uncordinated she dumps herself down causing the horses back to bend extensivly, and a reaction from Stella, she felt it.

I took her father aside and explained the result could be perminent damage to my horse and my loss would be in the thousands. He understood as he to had seen the reaction from Stella so a plan was hatched.

I have a spare saddle which we mounted on a fence the same height as Stella. Then we told the girl what was happening to Stella and she needed to learn how to get on before any more riding. Thank the heavens for her understanding because now she does not ride Stella any more. She is still working on perfecting her mounting. And the friendship with her mother is still intact.

Well that's it for this morning. Its Saturday 7-41 am, the sun is shining, no rain, I had a great nights sleep she who must be obeyed slept in the spare room said I was making to much noise. I don't snore.

Cheers all
Well refreshed
