    This evening's halter session with Pan went amazing! I was able to slip it on him with slight effort/restraint and he led like a pro! He remembered every bit of the training earlier. I'm so proud of my baby boy! I wasn't going to work him this evening, but he kept biting at his front leg and pawing and kicking out in the back. I knew something was wrong and guessed he may have a stone in his hoof. Sure enough dh picked up his foot while I rubbed his withers and he had a little rock stuck in there. He was such a good boy while having his leg held. I can't say enough how much I love this baby!!!

    So far, this morning is going MUCH better than yesterday! My son (will be 8 next month) threw up all over the backseat while we were driving to school yesterday morning. Needless to say we turned around and went home. At least my car looks like new after a full detail job.

    My cousin is visiting this weekend from Chicago. Aside from the Stockyards, what touristy things must we do in the DFW area?

    Cynical since you are going to be in Ft Worth you might as well visit the Amon Carter Museum and the Kimball. Two of the best in the entire country.
    In Dallas the 6th floor museum, the farmers market , the Aquarium.
    Oh and Neiman Marcus downtown. It just seems to blow the minds of yankees to see the prices and the jewelry department alone will take your breath away. Shalom

    Cyn, I'm not up to date on Dallas locations since I moved away 11 (!) years ago, but maybe a good Tex-Mex and/or BBQ restaurant for lunch/dinner.

    Had a great experience yesterday - for the second time in two visits, my new farrier arrived EARLY!!! He checked and trimmed my TWH and when I asked his opinon of shoeing her for the summer, he said let's see. After some jiggering with a shoe and measuring and discussion, he said it would be better for her to go barefoot awhile longer so her toes could grow back evenly and use hoof boots for any hard surface riding. She wears her toes down so quickly, she needs something. Anyway, his honesty and willingness to consider other options impressed me to no end. He then worked on the mule I was given last week. She's only about 12 or 13 hh and apparently her back feet hadn't been handled in a long time. I'd worked with her some and when Devin came, she was a little balky but settled right down and let him do all her feet. He as very gentle with her and she responded well. She's around 7 so had a long time to develop some cranky habits. So if you live up in the n.e. Part of Texas, and need a new farrier, I sure can recommend one. He's trained, experienced, and quiet, and not a jerk with horses or people.
