OMG Dawn I think Dream is the most beautiful Arabian I have ever seen! So sorry she is injured and praying for a quick recovery.
Gamer is a living Doll!!! You must be thrilled to have her home. I am thinking if I ever get my Arabian, I want to have one from that same farm as your girls were bred at.
Now George and Sultan both have a lady friend
and so happy to hear George is doing so well.
Denise I am thinking that Biscuit's scrape looks worse than it is. I hope so anyway! Can you slip a rope around his neck while he crunches a treat? That what I have to do to our tense little mare Sassy. She is super hard to catch, and if we try to slide a halter over her head...forget it! She takes off and keeps us at least 50 ft away!
Today was barn cleaning day for me. I dug out all the slop in the stalls from the flood we had this past weekend. I had to let it dry up a bit for a few days before I could even get it up. Used lots of shavings trying to keep the poor horses dry!
I managed to squeeze in a couple of rides too. I tried Drambuie with my Big Horn endurance saddle and the gel pad over a cotton pad. That darn tendon on the right side of his back is still not healed up, but he has been going fairly well in his lunging gear even if he hasn't been going very round, I thought it was worth a try to ride. The saddle worked much better than my Dressage saddle on him though, I think cause it sits more forward on him. Anyway, he did much better going left, but it is still not close to being right. However, I am sure once that tendon heals, he will be ridable. Not Dressage I'm sure, but a nice hack to ride.
Chivas was so fired up! I just love riding that horse! He is a ton of fun and so responsive! If only he was faster...
He did average 4.1 mph, a decent time for him. We only rode for 2.23 miles cause he was so wound up he was showing his stuff and sweating buckets.
Overall a very satisfying day
