However, I was a little taken aback by the price hike for lessons. I don't lesson anyway as I don't really mesh with the way BO teaches and I have a hard time swallowing the price anyway, but the new prices definitely ruled it out.
I was wondering if maybe it's just my cheap ass that thinks the prices are high. What are you guys paying for group lessons? Private lessons? What's the experience level of your instructor? Do you feel like you're paying a fair fee? I'm genuinely curious, and I'd love to hear from you guys.
|adorable without lessons. we just progress slower.|
In other news, Bobby was a star for the vet. He's the biggest mooch for the vet, and while the two horses on crossties were completely losing it because Vet smelled like the dairy barn she had just come from, Bobby was too busy trying to stuff his face in her pockets to care. She spent most of her time fawning over him and telling him what a wonderful pony he was and making Bobby voices to him. My vet office may be the most expensive in the area, but everyone there is pretty fabulous.
Bobby didn't get his teeth done last year (on recommendation of Vet), and this year he had such minimal issues that Vet didn't even bother with tranq or a speculum to float him. He did have a little hook on the top left which probably explains his heaviness and general distaste for the left rein. Hopefully that will be cleared up now.
But in even better news, she complimented his feet! She saw the event lines and new growth and asked if he'd had a diet change. I told her no, and then about my farrier woes and that I was now trimming him myself. She said it was obvious that he'd been trimmed wrong in the past, but that the new growth was really healthy looking and I was doing a really good job with him. Yay!
