I have to trailer him to Janna's to get shoes so this morning was farrier day. I went and fed him and after he was done eating, he was running around like a crazy horse! And he managed to pull the loose front shoe even though I had gorilla tape (best invention ever!) on it. Well, he must have bruised his foot with his shenanigans because the farrier had a really tough time getting a shoe on him (I've decided he's a wuss when it comes to pain). So he's still sore and he'll be getting a couple of days off. :( I have my Navy stuff this weekend so he probably won't get ridden until Monday (as long as he's sound!). Kind of a bummer.
This is about the 20th time Bruce (the farrier) reset the "Prince's" shoe trying to make him more comfortable. Amazingly, when I took him out to graze he had a miraculous recovery. He wasn't 100% but he wasn't head bobbing lame at the walk either. Silly pony!
