Havent updated this in a few weeks, I think Ive only gotten Rodeo out maybe twice in the past two weeks. Lunged him once, and rode him a few houses down the road the other day. I took him out and lunged him today, and then spent some time with him braiding his mane, and brushing him down a bit. Still waiting to hear back from the farrier, so we'll see what happens with that. He looks great! Feel bad that I havent done much with him, but just the start of this week is really when the weather started to get nice! This is by far my favorite time of year!
Went out and lunged Rodeo today. As always, had a ton of explosive energy going the one way, and no energy going the other. But after that, it was such a nice day that I decided to take him on a walk. We went on the main trail back behind the house in the woods. I havent been back there for probably 4-5months, so it was really nice to be back there again! Ive only ridden Rodeo back on that trail a handful of times, so something to look forward to when it starts to cool off some more. He ended up making a big hole on one part of the trail though, have no idea how, we were just walking along, he tripped, and when I turned around there was a hole in the middle of the trail, probably 2-3 feet deep, and close to a foot wide/long. Really strange, but he didnt get hurt, or freak out or anything! Looking into buying an electric fence charger, and some electric fencing/posts so we can finally get the rest of the second lot fenced in! Would be awe
It still amazes me, I havent ridden Rodeo in over a week, and even then, he is so well behaved 99% of the time! He was sweating when I walked out there, at 9am this morning, so I didnt ask a whole lot of him. I did ride him in the bosal though. Which was really the first time Ive taken him out in it. I loved his head carriage in it, but think I may need to wrap something around it, I think if we had gone on a longer ride, it would have rubbed the skin off of his nose. If any one has any suggestions, feel free to let me know what they are!
