Phew! Glad it's Friday, and it's over! Now looking forward to the weekend! Weather turned very nasty here today, made driving very tense. What a crazy winter this year.

Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend?

Aye, I was offered to ride this cute little guy tomorrow - been dreaming about him for ages!



He's a Latgalian trotter, speedy and spunky, I'm up for an enjoyable experience! Also, my farrier will trim my guy tomorrow morning and I'll get an update on how are his hooves improving regarding to the thrush he acquired in his previous home.

Looks like fun! He's gorgeous.

Hope there's progress on the thrush. Very frustrating.

oops haha gotta love those times when you just kinda realize what your doing when it's too late hey?

Riding was cancelled thanks to the rain -_-

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

bleach licking. YUMMY.
So we have SNOW.
Is it spring yet? I wish I could hibernate like a bear until it's 70 degrees outside.

Love the black horse. NICE>

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

Hmmm. perhaps she's using it as a "horse mouthwash" or tarter remover? Could be light years ahead in evolutionary development from all the other horses.

There actually is, so I'm pleased. His frog is starting to open up, and the thrush has noticeably lessened. I still have to keep up soaking, cleaning and desinfecting his hooves, but it's worth it.

As for the ride I was offered - Benito (that's the horse's name, he belongs to a friend of mine :) ) was gorgeous, we did some simple flatwork, because it was very cold, and only a little cantering, but I was impressed on how sensitive he is and how smooth his gaits are. We worked with extending his trot, it was a valuable lesson.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
