Thanks Ladytrails
Went to barn yesterday, was going to have another girl ride him (she has been working with him lately) but it was so nice out I decided that I would ride instead. I have changed up my saddle pads and girth (have borrowed a fuzzy girth with elastic) and it seems to be better. I think he likes this girth better as I was slowly doing up each side his ears were forward until I got to the last part but even then he didn't do too much. He was then awesome to ride so I have decided to keep him. I am having a lady come out today to do some body work and see if has any pain issues so that will be interesting.

So glad things went better with Hunter after changing the tack a bit. It's so hard to sell one & then start all new with another.

We had wind & rain yesterday, & it was a cold night,so we have a fire today. I hope to hear soon about starting my job-I think "my" nights will be Friday & Saturday, after I finish my training.

Yes and especially after rescuing them and spending almost 4 years with training, vets (lots of those bills) etc. And I get so attached. He may be a brat but he is mine and I still love him. I still think he will be a good horse when he grows up a bit

Ahhhh, THE perfect day weather wise. I bolted from work, stopped to,grab the dog and headed to the barn. Took a nice walk with Rainn.

Our pasture is is finally turning green!!! The last couple days have been warm, and night rains ( sorry Stan) are finally making some grass grow! I was a bit worried, it's a new pasture and easily tore up with the horses hooves.

Hoping you all are well! ��

Hunter, Yay! Excellent news. I'm so glad the little stinker treated you with a great ride, and a respectful attitude. As far as selling him and starting over --I totally understand where you're coming from. You know you have to watch him for a while but you know where the holes in his training or respect are; with a new one, you'll have to watch for a LONG while to find the holes that you need to fix.

How can you so boldly anounce you have had rain, when I am still running around in my grass skirt doing the rain dance to an indian beat, running bear. Well almost bear, the grass skirt does cover some thing.

Today a power pole in the front paddock was replaced, the hole was two metres deep and the ground bone dry. That is a worry the water table is now so low it will take months of rain to bring it back up again for next summer, which is only 8 months away. We are now into autum and the temp is still in the 20 to 23 degrees but cooler in the evening and mornings.

I've decided to take Bugs on the trek trouble is he got to excited on the last one and I had to pull out. This time because we have not had enough miles together I have decided I will hold him back for 30 minutes after thay have left, then start riding him. With a little luck he will have forgotten the other horses as they will be out of sight, but he will be able to smell them.

If all goes acording to plan I will turn him around and walk back to the start and head him in the direction of meeting them when they are coming in. Those horse will have settled and he will have 30 minutes with them walking in. That will give me a couple of hours on him and he some experience with new horses without every one getting upset. What say you all, sound like a plan.

Corgi thinking of you. A fish dinner is in order don't you think.
CW take the shift easy and stay connected with us
Hunter stay with the horse, changing is very hard on the nerves and emotions. One day its bugs, then Stella will do something to make me take notice and change my mind. Its a mind field I really will be in trouble if Stella starts following me around like Bugs does.

Take care all and get out there and ride.

My blog foremyhorse.org you may enjoy the read. Its different.

I will gladly get out there and ride when all my free time isn't being used to care for Boo's rear end. Lol

Had the young fella from church over after work yesterday to work Sugar the 3 yr old. Got them both worked up into a sweat as he was learning how to learn her lunging. She kept taking a short cut at part of the circle and getting over the lunge line before he could gather up. Get her stopped to untangle the line then start again.. I'll try to get the pic loaded later.

Got the salve painted on Boo before getting Levi started and the couple we got him from came down to pick up some 2x4x1/4 sq. Tubing to make a goose neck bracket as well as see how Boo was doing. They agreed he is living his name.

Hope all is well with everyone on this hump day.

Stan-it really wasn't much rain-but we had gusting winds & the power went out a few times but only for a few minutes,so lots of clock resettings. Yesterday it was cold enough that we started a fire, but that will probably be our last one, as we should start warming up for our "hot" season real soon. Sounds like a good plan for the ride.
