Junior is well. I haven't been able to ride him at all, sadly, but soon...
On Thursday I got the new farrier to do his feet. We are very slowly going to correct his hoof angle, which I am very happy about. Junior was moving SO great after Corona did his hooves. Plus Junior loved him, which is so great, as Junior doesn't like a lot of men.
I trimmed his mane yesterday. I think it looks like CRAP, but people are insisting it doesn't look that bad. I might trim it up some more to make it look more even, but we will see.
Besides that I have been spending lots of time just brushing Junior and napping with him out in the field while he is laying down. I ordered some tack today from Dover, so that will hopefully be here by the end of next week. He got a new jumper/xc bridle (just a plain brown bridle with a flash), a hunter bridle (raised, padded, and fancy stitching), a hunter dee ring, a full cheek slow twist and bit keepers for it, white polos (I am going to get myself some polo wrapping "lessons" from a friend), black bell boots since he over-reaches so bad, and a white half pad (I still have my black Mattes for dressage). I will be getting lots of pictures of him modeling all of the new tack.
I will hopefully be riding tomorrow afternoon, but we will see. He is now clear for cantering and once he has some muscle built up grid work and such will start. We will be setting up a "cross country" course throughout my entire field when the weather gets a bit better.
