Soo..Today was kinda disappointing. :/ I was sooo ready to work on canter, canter, canter..and some more canter! But the butt decided to be ever so slightly off and I deemed her lame.):
She was perfectly sound walk/canter. Her trot was just a little off though. She didn't look lame when I lunged her in a small circle, but she just felt off while I was on her..I figured it may just be because her feet are a little sore since they were just trimmed (and I have yet to have time to fix them, along with the fact that they're too short
), but I hopped off and untacked her.
So..I took the clippers to her! XD I didn't have anything else to do with her since she's about perfect on the ground (for now...until she comes into heat again, lol), so I decided I was going to attempt to clip again. She's pretty much done shedding aside from those nasty, horrid looking starvation hairs, so it was time for those to go too. So her belly/shoulder/leg/chest fuzz that isn't suppose to be there now blends in with her coat a little better, lol. She twitched a few times on her belly and shoulders..so there's a few spots with slightly less summer coat, but it's okay because they're not noticable like the last patch I ruined on her neck, lol.
I left her standing where I clipped while I went to put my tack away and she STOOD! She didn't even move a foot. She stood stock still watching the horses get turned out, but never moved. So, for now: Ground Tying=Check.
After that I hosed her off since it's warm out and we need to work on the kick warning she gives everytime I get water on her, lol. By the end of our hosing session she dropped it right back to the ground everytime I said down and growled..so I viewed it as progress and sat on my tailgate while she dried off a little.
So, while I was hoping to be out there until 3 or so..I put her away around 1.30 and went to go get some lunch for myself.
I'll post pictures in the next post :p Posted via Mobile Device
