    CRAP! I just wrote a whole post and lost it!

    I was saying that Patches looks great. I know what you mean about the right horse for the handicapped. I have a son with mental deficiencies and a mild form of MD. Very uncoordinated so finding a horse for him was a task. Finally found a huge grade paint, very heavy boned. He would just plant all fours and when my son, all 6'2" and 240 lbs of him, hauled himself up there all that moved was the saddle a little. HaHa. Son finally got tired of riding with me so I sold him to a lady that just likes to mosey around the block in the evenings.

    Kudos to you for what you're doing with Patches and to that young rider for recognizing the need for improvement.

    I sure hope my Bart hangs on like Patches. It will be quite a bender for me when I lose him.

I'm trying to get Roslyn to do it for me while I hold her, She won't have a bar of it. I live under the misconception that marriage is a shared thing, I am willing to share the danger with her. Can't understand her reluctance.
    She is on rations all extras have stopped. I'm referring to Stella, that includes the hay and it is now a process of elimination. I am feeding her an additive designed to bind to any toxins in her gut. This could be a long process finding what she is reacting to.

    And the bad thing is that it may be just a one time thing! Sorry Stan. You've got your work cut out for you! Hope all goes well.

    Hi all!

    Had another training session this morning, I rode and got Kes way more collected and using her hind end. I hav discovered that the curb chain is what she is evading! Put it on a little looser than norm and things went much better for us.

    Cacowgirl- our first show is in a little over a week from now, then our big breed show starts on the 24th. I agree, my trainer is supposed to ride beautifully, and he does, Kes really respects him. He cares a lot about her, I don't know that I could ever leave our barn.

    Token- hoping Stella continues the improvement. Do you have her on supplements? I've heard that sometimes when the manufacturer changes something in a supplement horses can have allergies from it. Just somethimg to look into. Kes has allergies to alfalfa dust of all things. Hers can't be dropped, just hand delivered, she's quite the princess.

    Blue- I hate when that happens with posts and I can't figure out why it happens!

    Bedtime...have another training session tomorrow and need to rest these muscles after todays session.
