If any of y'all are close to Alvin, you should definitely go to Rodeo Kid Arena next month for their groundwork clinic. I went this weekend with Henny and it was amazing. We spent 5 hours with Jim Phillips on groundwork and desensitizing the horses. It was a great family atmosphere and I'm already looking forward to next month's clinic! He broke a horse to ride right in front of us, it was just great to watch.
Ok, this maybe a little graphic but wanted to share my Saturday morning experience with y'all! Miss Apache decided to try and take her eyelid off in her stall!!! Not sure what she caught it on but went through her stall with a fine tooth comb and fixed anything it could have happened on.
She was a trooper, she loaded so well for her 1st vet visit. Stood in the stock, took all the pokes, prods and stitches until she started to feel them, then it was another story. Trying to get the last stitch in, she through a fit and fell in the stock then wouldn't get up! The vet had to use a cattle prod to get her up, which she didn't like at all. Although neither did the vet, because she nailed him in the thigh with her back right foot!
Here's the after, I thought the vet did a great job!!
Even though she threw a fit, can't say that I blame her, but I was so proud of her. She also had her first redicure last night!!!!
