A bit of an update:
On last Saturday the farrier came out. I brought Chico & Bella into the yard early to groom them good because they had been in the mud for several days. Chico did well, naturally, as did Bella. She didn't even mind the dewormer! Lol
We worked a little bit after wards & both did well.
Today I had Chico out in the field. It's still pretty wet but it's a bigger area. She did well. Doesn't like to lope much on the line but I got her doing it in both directions eventually. Slipped a bit, so I can't wait for it to dry up.
I set up a "jump" as well & had her going over it really well, first during the circle game then with me running beside her.
Afterwards I brushed both girls & turned Bella out into the big field with Chico. She's been in solitary confinement for about 3 weeks now because she needed to lose a bit of weight, but mostly because we did not have the electric wire up & she kept getting out. Hopefully now the fences will hold her!
