I'm on the top of the world..

Funny how some days just feel good; today was one of those.

Moo worked well on the lunge and I shall continue to ride him every other day and ground work in between. Yesterday's ridden work was great and he was very responsive; moments in the trot when he felt really *carried* and relaxed. Today he seemed 99% but it's early days and I'm waiting to hear about the osteo but I'm somewhat heartened by his freedom in the shoulder and quarters and it seems he won't be in retirement after all (the thought went through my mind many times on holday).

This afternoon the trimmer came and I'll have to take pics but Moo's feet are looking soooo different. Gareth is pleased with all three, phew, and when the hoof boots arrive Moo will harden up his soles and be ready for all terrain, lol.

Glad to hear he is back on the up again...its always a worry when they are not right and especially when their timming is not good.

I'm glad he's almost back to normal. It's a relief isn't it. I've been thinking about having a trimmer to mine, especially the youngsters, do you think he would come?
