I hung the new stall plaques on their respective horse's doors and then brought Moon in to work. W arrived in time to oogle her new plaque and prompty had her dad pull out the drill to hang them. Guess which other pony's stall plaque is finally hanging in front of his stall? Moon'er's!
W watched us for a bit and agreed he seemed a little off. I just can't bear riding him when he's sore, even a little bit. So I hopped off.
I pulled out my cavesson and lunge line and hauled him back in to the ring. We haven't lunged in months and I wasn't sure he even remembered how. Well, he drifted in a few times, but after some reminders he was trotting around on the lunge like a good boy. Could stand to keep the line a bit tighter, but I WAS happy that his head was lower then it had been earlier this summer before we started with W. Seems he IS learning to use his neck properly!
On a good note, I'm curious to see how he goes at a canter on the lunge line...maybe once he's feeling better we'll start on that. Plus a couple of poles/jumps without me.
Gees, I hope he toughens those hooves up soon!
