In pony news, he has all four shoes on and has managed to keep them on for a week (knock on wood!) - woohoo! It's the little things, right? I've sat on him a few times since he got new shoes and he was quite good one day - very willing to move forward into the bridle, and a total punk the next day - basically refusing to go forward if I had any contact with his face. My fault. What can I expect considering he's been ridden so sporadically this summer?
Just in case you all thought he was wasting away - a light summer and September off does the body good.
