    Had a lady out last night to check Hunters back etc and it turns out he had a rib and one hip out and some very sore areas partially due to my saddle. She gave me a few good fixes for my saddle plus I will get my new fuzzy girth with elastic and things should be much better for him. He was such a good boy for her! Can't wait to ride tomorrow and see how he goes.

    Very happy to hear the issue was found and hopefully corrected. Should be in for some good riding now that the saddle is being adjusted for his comfort.

    Championship match: Guilty dog vs. happy horse

    I never tire of that video. I'd be afraid he would break his leg.

    Here is the pic I mentioned earlier of Levi and Sugar learning to lunge.

    He is really enjoying his time at the barn and pasture with the horses. Doesn't matter to him anymore if it is mucking stalls, patching roof, grooming or working Sugar.

    Geeze I can hardly keep up with this thread!

    Stan - loved seeing the pics of you and bugs! Wish I could send you some of our rain...it's getting old.
    CW - where are you moving? Hope the move goes well for you!
    Roadyy - owww those pics make my eyes water, poor poneh. At least the flies aren't bad yet so the wounds will heal without the fly irratators (had to deal with that last summer, flies wouln't stay away from the wounds)
    Nicker - LOVE your bucket list pics!!
    Hunter - so glad you're keeping your boy, he IS so darn cute.
    Corgi - still sending prayers your way and so glad you are finding some solace with your girl. Love the pic!

    Sorry if I forgot anyone!!

    Had a lesson today, went ok. Nothing great, was just one of those days where you ride and it was fine but you wanted more. I think the show stress is getting to me a little. Kes was feeling spunky and spooked a few times and was a little naughty, made me laugh since she's not like that. Have a lesson tomorrow, then our last schooling show on Saturday. It's supposed to pour here the rest of the week, which makes for a dripping wet show horse and tack...ugh. But, all my tulips are about to bloom, gotta look at the bright side.

    Farrier came today. Put a shoe on Stella and took them off Bugs. Both horses can be ridden in the trek on Saturday but It will be Bugs.

    Bugs is not used to having his shoes off and on and was a little stropy when his hind hooves were done so the farrier decided to show Roslyn what he wanted me to do with Bugs to get him used to the feel of tapping on his hooves. Roslyn said the farrier picked up his hind hooves, expecting bugs to react as he had a couple of minutes before, and Bugs just stood there and let him tap away at his hoof. Looks like the light got turned on and Bugs has got what is required when being shod. That's my boy, smart as, and quick as lightening. On the note of lightening there is a great big black cloud hanging over us, time to get the grass skirt on again.

    Cheers all.
