I found some new stretches to work with West on, during our daily groom-and-stretch routine. That, and a few new massages to help his topline.
I’m excited for tomorrow- I’ve finally decided to put some of my dog training skill to work with him, and I’m bringing my clicker out to teach him some new things. We’ll start with ‘touch’, but eventually I want to get to ‘smile’ and ‘bow’ and ‘lay down’. He’s so good with verbal cues (‘foot’ to lift his foot, ‘over’ to move over, ‘step’ to move up a step) already, so I don’t think it will take long.
Any suggestions for more tricks to teach him?
The quality really sucks but I’m having too much fun making these.
1) Sporty or Stocky
4) Arena or Field
6) Roman Nose, Dished, or Refined Face
7) Sweet or Spirited
9) Shoes or Barefoot
10) Short Mane or Long Mane
Thank you! :)
I tried a thing
20) Have you ever been bucked off?
By the dearest, sweetest, sassiest quarter horse I know- Miss Jovie. At least it wasn’t too far to the ground.
All of his stitches are out!!
These two are my favorite recent pictures of him.
mazthespaz, give me some of your talent! I have no idea what I’m doing behind a camera, clearly.
At least he’s cute.
A little over a year ago.
Sometimes I wonder what things would be like if Bob had never left. It was for the best- his health was failing and he was working himself too hard. Still, though, I miss him.
All but two of his stitches came out today. :)
By the end, he was getting a little irritated and I didn’t want to push it. The last ones are right where the deepest part of his deeper cut is, so it won’t hurt to leave those in another day or two.
I think Monday he’ll go back in the pasture with his boys!
