I found this in the dog dish this morning...Meg played with him for a while...made sure he got to "moisturize" in a bowl of water and then took him across the road for release. It is getting real dry around here. We could use a shot of rain for sure.
This showed up this weekend...It's the Boon Bar filly. Hard to tell from this picture, but she looks pretty tough...and was not too sure what traumas were about to be forced on her. A few days with plenty of feed and nothing but a few pats at feeding time and she has calmed down. Now, the poor dear needs a bath and a trim. When asked how she rode, this was the reply "Well, she needs another 60 days to finish her, but don't give her, her head for the first couple of miles." In translation...she is green as grass and probably dumped the dumbass on his head. Which probably accounts for her lack of condition. Oh golly gee...I just love cowboys. Okay, so this guy isn't really a "cowboy", he just plays at being one-LOL.
I'm on the hunt for a good chiropractor...Now that I have worked through some of Turk's "issues", it has become abundantly clear that he is out in his hips. He is still kicking out when asked to lope. Especially in his left lead and he cannot maintain a hind lead going either direction for more than a few strides. Other than that, he has really come around and is a joy to ride. The jog he has coming along...ummm, ummm good.
And what is this I see?That would be my mommy dearest!! Yessiree, not only is momma back on a horse, she even came to town to ride with Megan and I last night. I couldn't help but giggle a bit though...she thought I was exaggerating about how rough Leo's lope was...She loped a big circle and then busted out laughing about the "freight-train" lope he has. Now wouldn't it be cool if I could get her to start running barrels again?
