Whoa, I just realised, that the beginning of the sentence does not make sense.. I wanted to say " I want a nicer, longer bit for him... "

Sheesh.. I guess my fingers got tired and could not say what my mind thinks

It has started to rain again.. but the horses are just munching on their hay. I most likely will not have time to work with them today, as I got other, more important things going on... but just a slight concern about the fact that Teddy coughs every now and then, and the rain comes with some cold wind.. but the shelter is blocked off atm.. I guess tomoro I have to work it out, or later today, so they do have access to it.

I am impatient myself.. I wanna see some results, but I know it will be months, and months and months.. I already regret I did not measure grand when he came in, both for height and weight. That I haven't written how long it took to get some things done.. but overall there is some progress, so we keep going :)


They are annoying my dogs now - running around the pastures

I am glad to hear it :)
I really hope his leg heals soon enough and I can put his mind to work and keep him busy, build more muscles and make sure he is strong, happy and his life is full :)

I am at a loss.
Teddy now needs a cough syrup, lots of workouts, clearing his lungs out - so we need canter.
After 20 minutes on the lunge in trot he is not getting softer or flexing inwards, bending slightly, he runs straight. Canter cue he ignores 2-4 times on average.. I have to pull him on a smaller circle and then he reacts, with trying to bolt off...
His canter is ALWAYS cross fired.. I do not want to encourage that, but its blooooooody hard to get him to canter even a single step correctly..
I don't want to tie him down in the correct bend and then ask. I cannot ride for 2 hours a day either, I will be totally worn out and useless after that.
I don't have a proper arena either. I don';t have hills anywhere near to use for balance work.
I have no idea how to work this all out, and he is not even mine, and even though his owner wants to see progress his attitude usually is "he does all I need him to do.. "
No he doesn't, or you don't care how unbalanced and **** your horse is at the moment..

Ok, I just called my trainer, and she will come over to my place to ride him.. hopefully explain how to work with him and what I can do.. but that's on Monday. Today is tuesday. I still got 5 days to try to work with him... grrr...

Sometimes he pisses me right off, as I know he can do things, but he pretends to be stupid and unable to work.. I guess I am missing a lot, and nobody apart from the trainer can help me at the moment..

He also really needs his massage to rule out any hindquarter problems, as the massager, when she was here, said he looks stiff on his hind end..

Grand is fine, still lame, but eats and is happy..

Teddy gets a massage today!!!!

Grand just derps around.
Maybe I get to make a "round pen" again.

Thanks.
Well, he was massaged and stretched a little today, and then they went to the forest for a little walk. Of course, as it's raining nothing was done, but they brought me the isolators, so I can fix the fence around the shelter now.

They both got their buckets, but still need to lunge Teddy today..

Teddy's owner said, that because he has not been here for about 10 days, he can see that Grand is filling out, some parts look nicer..
