I alternated between trotting one field and cantering the next, and so on, today. I cantered him back except for the last three fields. I walked, then trotted, then hand-galloped (Bobby's hand gallop would make him a good hunter--his ten foot long neck sticking straight up in the air would not.). My saddle slid way bak again, even though there were no hills, I made sure the girth was nice and snug, and I even put the saddle a little farther forward than it should have been to compensate! Oi.
|The highest point of his withers, where his saddle started.|
|I'm thinking I need to rig a baling twine breastplate soon.|
|The bandage slid down because that much swelling went down. The sweeling is big, but yesterday was even bigger.|
I gave Red another curry after annoying him for awhile. He likes the attention.
I ordered the B-L Pellets from SmartPak today since I needed more U-Gard. Thanks to COTH, I got a huge discount: OMEG50OFF2 -- 50% first two months for supplements. Holler! I also ordered a full cheek snaffle for Bobby from State Line Tack and bit keepers and got $5.00 off on that order with a google search for a coupon. Aaaand....we're picking up the trailer either tonight or tomorrow morning. How do you have so much money, you ask? (like $50 for those four things is alot.) Another hay check is on the way, and our buyer thinks he might be able to get another full load out. Woo hoo!
