Sounds like it's going well :)
Why do you have to wait to start riding until you start work?
Money?

Money and my mother doesn't want to go anywhere.. do anything. Dad takes the car and I don't have a buspass so I have no way except walking (which it's 45mins by car so it'd take me like 3-4 hours of walking I believe) so lucky me I get to study all day lol.

Sky's bit arrived!! So we're going to have him lunged today with it in his mouth so he can get used to it before getting ridden. I hope it goes well since it's both a french link and a loose ring.

Someone was so kind enough to buy Sky a fly mask for this summer :) So he gets to rock that on especially sunny days so flies don't bother his eyes or ears.

No word from that lady so I'm going to assume it means no deal and move on. Oh well. Slowly crawling along with my research paper (first class project) as I can't find enough sources that express no bias or opinion. People are so touchy and emotional about chickens it's ridiculous!!!

Can't wait till I'm done!!

Wow... not the email I wanted to read this morning. Apparently Sky decided to buck someone off twice. He has NEVER done this in my care so I'm at a loss of what to do. BO thinks it's the new bit pinching him since it's a loose ring so they're getting bit guards for him.

I just.. urgh. I wish I was there. I don't know if they lunged him before or not but I'm just not in a good mood this morning. Trying to figure out what could make him do that, so I've actually PM'd quite a few people to ask their opinions and maybe they have some advice.

77% done with the first project, then I can actually get going on the paper.

Hope everyone else's day is great..

Another email that I wish I didn't read, least it wasn't about Sky, he did great today and got a trim and his feet had their first soak. They're going to hopefully ride him tomorrow and hopefully the bucking was a one time deal!

Trying to get through my second project but not in the best mood at all.. hopefully things work out for the best.

Wow sky is having a tough time without you.
At least they are keeping you updated and willing to keep working with him!
Shame about the bit possibly pinching him, i hope the guards work out for you both.

Guess who passed with a perfect score? This woman! I worked so hard on my first project but I'm still surprised that I got everything!

So now I have another project and I'm already done with about 35% of it so hopefully I can write it today and revise it tomorrow.. then I'll have only 2 more projects till this class is done.. then onto class number 2.

Talked with Sky on the phone (yes you read that right) since the lady taking care of him called me this morning to give me an update. We started soaking his feet and I noticed in the pictures that his pasterns were sunburnt red from what we believed to be the soaking so I asked her to check this morning and they were all fine :)

But yeah I said hi to him and he was looking around really confused. So who knows what was going through his head lol!

Hope everyone is doing well :)
