Good morning everyone! Grace:
Thanks so much for that info! I would have never thought to wipe my hoofpick with an antibacterial cloth, that makes so much sense!! I too am a total nazi with her feet, I clean them EVERY day, and am RELIGIOUS with applying the thrush stuff every 3 days. I was at my wits end with the WHY it wouldn't clear up completely.
I'm so glad for you that Kes is going so well under saddle, makes everything else that they put us through worth it doesn't it =) Has she warmed up to you again yet? Or is she still being b$%chy? I had read online that a mare's cycle is usually between September to march, and that they are more moody then. Maybe it's just that? Stan:
Oh dear I am totally guilty of envisioning you in a crupper and breastplate, it had me rolling with laughter! I do beleive that those items are for your beauty (stella) and not for you lmao! You can always blanket her bum area if the hair has not grown back sufficiantly so she can stay warm =) CS:
Cody is beautiful! Hope you get to hop on him this weekend. His pastern is looking great, I wonder if I can get some of that stuff shipped here to Canada?
On to my crazy sassy one, had a ride last night, she was in quite the mood....Had a hard time getting her to bend and get on the **** bit, she kept avoiding it, so I got her loooong and low, no problem whatsoever....at a trot nooooo problem at all....I don't know if it's because she's 3 1/2 or she really doesn't like contact. As soon as I would "pick up the reins" she shoots her head up in the air like a giraffe and goes at a mad trot around the ring. I have her in an eggbut snaffle (pic below) which is supposed to be easier on the mouth, eh well, i'll ask my trainer see what she says, I'm having a lesson on monday hopefully she can fix this problem, or tell me how to get it fixed!
Have a great day everyone!
