Dreaming ... impatiently waiting...

Henry's foot is healing well... shoer said probably another week and a half or two till we should be all good to start back to normal riding.

Thanks Kat for the pics!!! 

He said I can start working him (lunging as long as he looks comfortable) more then hand walking as long as I make sure that no dirt gets in his foot- it's wrapped 24/7 right now and Henry is a professional as wearing through it extremely fast.... what should last 3 days lasts us 24 hours lol. SOOOO needless to say I am a professional foot wrapper now - not sure if I should be proud of that!

So ready to be back doing this ... I am impatiently waiting ha!

G $

Grayson has been a doll lately.. He is chilling big time and just being a really good guy!

His voice commands in the round pen are like 85% ... pretty good for only about 6 round pen sessions.

He has been good under saddle- he knows where the gate is so working him by the gate and resting away from the gate is the key right now. Still working on that right lead- he wants to be a rope horse - left lead only lol!!

I stole a horse..

Ok well not really but kinda... I took one of my sisters 5 year olds who she left behind to ride since Henry is letting his foot heal.

Meet Iggy (Funny Cash Money)... she's 5, about 14 h and pretty stinken fun to ride. I've ridden her a bunch before but never english so we have been exploring that.

We affectionately call her Ignasty because well on the ground she can be a bit nasty, but under saddle she is a doll. Just stay away from her hind end or make sure you are holding her be nice stick (aka whip). The only thing we can think of is that someone handled her poorly as a youngster because we know who broke her and he got her like that.

Anywho I plan to trailer her over Saturday to take a lesson with the Saturday crew.. should be fun!!

Iggy and Grayson will be my riding focus right now ...
