    Is Snickers already 4? Aires will be 4 on May 7th. I can't believe I've had him two years already!

    She turned 4 on 4/15th. She is only 14.1hh and I am 5'2". She has a very solid build...I never feel large on her.

    Of course I got a video...lol! I had to do it myself while riding because my daughter, who took the pics, thought it was too dumb to take a video too. Teenagers.

    Walked Snickers to parade practice with her 'gear' on.....her tarp, flag, plastic bags, 5 gallon oil jug and windmill all attached to her to carry about a mile down the road to the other ranch. We also walked around a roadside tack sale on the way. Not one spook. Everyone at parade practice is quite impressed with her. First parade is in three weeks!

    I lunged Snickers today so I could see her legs in transitions. Her trot looks the same pretty much. It's in her canter that I am seeing much improvement! She is holding it without the evil faces. And, when she downward transitions to trot, it is really starting to look smoother. Every so often there is a little hiccup....but for the most part it really looks good. She is even running around the pasture more by herself without hesitation. Video soon!

    OK!! I think this is a pretty good video. Not lunging, just trotting and cantering freely in the arena. I'm really impressed with the same.....smoother trot and transitions downward from canter. Not perfect, but she is no longer getting tripped up.

    She does look to be moving a lot better - it does seem as if she's now getting control of her back end as it looked sort of disunited before
    Have to mention that both horses look fantastic - so shiny - all the extra oils must be benefiting their coats too
    Have you noticed any increase in weight - they don't look overweight but just wondered

    No increase in weight anyways...that's good. I am still working on getting them both to lose some weight. They have lost some. They are not as spongy in the ribs. I can feel them now and the outline of muscle that runs down the flanks??? Not sure what it is called. Before there was a little more padding there. Their hay has been cut waaaaay back, without worries, because many of times they still have some remaining in their bin, so they are not starving. They get pasture while I'm out there too. So, we keep chipping forward little by little.

    I also noticed that when I hand walk her up and down some inclines, she doesn't seem to be knuckling over on those hinds like before either..yay!!
