Mr Eddie came to visit 5/24 mid-day. Both boys were easy to catch. Romeo had the tiniest bit trimmed off his hoof walls, and a little bit of toes rounded up. All things looking good.
Harley's trim was quite similar. Just a little bit clipped off, and a bit of rounding. He stood pretty good, and I do have before/after pictures taken, need posting. :)
His advice? "Ride them today, for sure! Tomorrow if you have time. Let me know if anything comes up wrong, so I can make a note before I show up again. See you in 6 weeks."
Thursday evening, I rode both. Results? All good. A bit of warmth in all four hooves for Harley, and front right for Mo. Didn't seem to affect either of them, as there wasn't the slightest bit of acting out. :)
Saturday I had some time to ride Harley again. I took him to the arena, and after a brief warmup, we trotted through the ground poles and over the crossrail a few times. Not a single problem. Just a happy cooperative horse. :)
Sunday I hopped on Mo bareback in the evening for a few minutes, and what did I get? One seriously jealous Harley. I made it up to him Monday morning early and rode him out for some work.
Last week had a few good rides, and a few more over the weekend. We're getting the hang of our new homework from the dressage lesson. I'm getting anxious to show it off and find out what's next .
I owe some hoof pictures, some new splint boot reviews, and more good detailed videos of a few things Harley's up to. :)
OOh Yeah.. and a grim picture of my sad helmet before it gets replaced. I will say this for now..
