I suppose I can’t complain. Things are going okay, maybe not as fast as I’d like, but the Mustangs are improving with every session, and that’s all I can ask for. There are moments in each session where it seems that we take several steps backwards, but we always seem to end on a good note.
I have saddled EZ several days in a row now. Today is the first day that she walked off without her crow hops, so that is a good sign. She is beginning to accept all these strange things I’m throwing at her.
I am going slow with Yogi, I haven’t spent as much time on him, mainly because I don’t want to stress his legs. I noticed he doesn’t present quite as lame when I have him out in the grass, or soft sand, as opposed to the hard packed/uneven footing in the small corral.
I have had a few friends mention helping out with the cost of X-Rays, so if it gets to that point, maybe we will find out what his true problems are. If nothing else, he makes a great model for my paintings!
