So I have tried to catch up on all these posts since Saturday, whew that was a lot to catch up on! Lets see if I can remember now everything I wanted to say...
Susan - Sophie looks fabulous, I can't wait to hear how she does on Friday, but I do have a feeling she is going to perform perfectly for you. Good luck!!
Stan - I will go have a look at the flooring of the trailer, but I would think if it was slippery the other two horses would have had issues too. ?? But will go check it out and get it wet and see what it's doing up front where Kes rides (since she's the biggest, tee hee hee)
Sinnabun - Welcome! I love your horse, and that you worked out your issues and have created a great bond with her. Your post title just says it all, and I know exactly what you mean by second childhood, I feel like a kid again every time I ride.
Welcome to the other new 40 and over friends!!
Can't remember all I wanted to say, sorry to all I missed, and thank you all for your sweet words. I really am proud of my mare for her performance, she is exactly the show horse I knew she would be. Just got to get the trailer issues worked out.
Went and hand walked her today, farrier can't come til tomorrow morning. Fetlocks are swollen, she's quite sore all over. Gave her Bute, will go cold hose her tonight. Luckily, she knows a horse masseuse, and enjoyed quite a long rub down this afternoon.
