I've had a couple of good lessons since the last post. The head trainer wants us to take a step back to do simpler things with him. He thinks we were moving too fast with Jack. I didn't really feel like we were doing very complicated lessons so I'm not sure quite what he meant but whatever. Jack is already putting on a little weight since he's moved indoors. He doesn't look so ribby even with the removal of all his hair. He is also finally seems to have gotten over the lack of hair. Man, oh man, does he hate this hair cut. I've had to remove my spurs since he is so over-reactive to the leg. He's getting better now, but for a couple of lessons it was pretty bad.
We have changed to a slow twist full cheek to get a little better response to the bit. Hopefully, we get back to the happy mouth french link eventually, but we need this for now.
Hopefully, Lane will have the schedule for the "B" team together next week so I will have a snow balls chance to get some of the dates off.
It's getting there, very slowly.
