I'm glad George is getting better. Eye injuries are tough but at least he'd going to have some sight. That's great news.
My original plans got cancelled but Si.ne's owner called asking if I wanted to go out with her and some friends. One of the horses I rescued a few years ago came back to me and I figured I'd see how she'd do. She's naturally a nervous horse so I did a lot of work with her on the trail, making her stand alone while everyone left, walking over piles of stuff, walking through water, and keeping her attention on me. We ended up at a bog with some abandoned and decrepit buildings, train tracks, frogs, turtles, and turkeys. When we cam across the turkeys my girl wanted to go see them and couldn't figure why they ran/flew away from her. She was also fascinated by a turtle in the bog and if the evil scary frog hadn't attacked her so violently she would have gone in after it. I hand walked her for about a mile before I got on just to make sure she was comfortable on her first trail. I expected her to be nervous so she did way better than I expected. A little more work and she should have her confidence back. Not bad overall.
36 miles to date.
Show me a horseman who hasn't fallen and I'll show you a man who has never truly ridden.
