SorrelHorse, she's adorable! I just wanted to add that I watched (on the Discovery channel I believe) a mother Elk walk around three legged lame to lure the cyote away from her newborn calf. Then she turned right around and chased it off full speed. I think horses horses are capable of learning this, especially a horse that was lame before and got time off. I'm sure in this case it's the little girl's feet.

She is a real cutie :)

I've had a week off from work with the boss headed off to judge in Texas, and I meant to swing it and give her a bareback test ride but I didn't...So I guess we'll see how she is in the next few days. Her feet are SUPPOSED to be done...But, you know how farriers can be...

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I do swear my boy 'fakes it' at times tho! I was concerned once a while back when riding with a friend, and she said 'lets see if he is still limpy when we head for home..." and lo and behold... nope.
And last summer we rode the trails by the barn, right as rain. Not a limp at all. Decided to head back to the barn to get clippers and do a little trail maintenance, trim some branches etc... hopped off him, went into the barn, grabbed the clippers... and hopped back on. And suddenly he was Oh The Poor Limpy Horse! LOL... in 30 seconds??? I dont THINK so! So we went back out... and once he realized he was not getting to go back to the pasture he was back to normal....

My TB faked it once, we were riding in the opposite direction from home when he started limping so got off and led him and he was fine I got on and he started again then I turned for home and he stopped limping!

Hahaha! Reminds me of my trail rides...Going away from home, Selena doesn't like crossing water or particularly difficult terrain.

But, going back home...She'll plow right through anything!

My horse used to do that and in the end to get him across we used my brother Standardbred to push him from behind which worked well because my brothers horse was just as annoyed as we were waiting and bulldozed him in and now he crosses without hesitating

Lol. I just make Selena go. There's consequences if she doesn't and she knows it!
