Pip, Pip, Pip, Pip......

He has been stellar this week. Finding the perfect spot on a line that was set short and ADJUSTING his step to find the sensible spot, not the flyer!!! YAHOO!!! Not only doing it once doing it multiple times. Getting the right number of strides, winding up leaving the ground from the same spot EVERY TIME through and it was a larger oxer on the out side of the line. Morgan says he is getting to be really fun to ride, less work for Morgan. Excellent. There is hope for him yet.

The horse is still a goof ball. At home for flat schools he is on some kind of timetable or something. Walk around the ring so many times, trot around this many, then he decides it is time to CANTER. A year ago getting him to canter was a bit of a chore, now he just decides it is time to. He does this big weird flourish with his front legs when he is deciding it's "Canter Time" - we call it his Liberace canter. He never does it anywhere but home and only when he has decided it is time to canter.

Maybe he has a meeting or something to go to. He is just very odd, amusing, but odd.

Allergy shots are going well. He hates them but that is pretty much it. We are up to every 1o days on this set of vials, which will take us through November, then on to the last set for the initial desensitization which will start December 5th and go through June.

He is very shiny and in perfect weight and he has grown. He is starting to look BIG, but he still has a pony face, and because his neck is set on low looks shorter than he is. I'm so excited for his PreGreen year. That is if he stays consistent. Wish us luck!
