I'm being very (very) cautiously optimistic about the show this weekend, so we'll see how all of this goes.
I lunged Jetta on the lunge line today in the freshly dragged arena. I know I'm not alone when I say that I love it when I'm the first person to ride (or at least in my case, lunge) in the fresh and smooth dirt. Silly horse people :)
After briefly lunging and then letting her sniff around, flirt with the gelding outside and then roll, I soaked her hoof again for 20 minutes and then cleaned out her boot and reapplied the poultice. She is such a good girl for getting her hoof soaked. Just plop down some hay in front of her and she won't budge!
I'm afraid that's it for news in my neck of the woods. Tomorrow I hope to do the same, maybe if I'm lucky I might do a short ride, then work on pulling Jetta's mane and clean some tack. Such is life with horses - they might drive us crazy and cause us endless worry, but I wouldn't trade them for anything :)
