After I got home from tack shopping I went for a little ride on Twister. He was naughty. Very naughty. He was spooking at the infamous garbage can and being a shithead. When I took my dressage whip and smacked him once on the shoulder to get his attention and he bucked. And he kept trying to kick out at the dogs. So I decided to take a different approach and gallop his fat, out of shape ass up the hill a few times. Harder to buck going up and down a steep hill, right? It worked. Then we took a nice walk around the farm before going back to get his make over.
|March Confirmation Pic... i can't tell if he's fat with no muscle|
or wormy (wormed 5 weeks ago) or droopy skinny. NO topline.....
|Maked over Twister. Pulled mane and rebraided tail and trimmed feathers|
and Sleekez-ed him (review coming soon)
I have to do SOMETHING with this kid. Even trot sets and just deal with the dusty nasty shedrow. Also in like 2 weeks Twister will be the only horse on the farm. Not sure how he's going to handle it. HAHAHAH who am I kidding??!!! He'll lose his mind like a foal being weaned from his mommy. I think it might be time to getting another riding horse. Or let one of my friends keep a horse here. Or something.
Here is Twister is some of his new tack. I have an addiction and I need help.
|New saddle pad and new breast collar. I think he looks especially spiffy.|
I have been trying since like August to find sport boots for Twister that fit and I haven't been able to! SMB's didn't fit and Pegasus didn't fit and Sportsman didn't fit. But these Tough One boots for HINDS fit him perfectly on his fronts!
|I traded a friend my Pegasus boots for these ones.|
BTW, feet are also improving!
And last but not least, I cleaned my feed room and especially the tack/cat room. Cleaned the shit out of it! I'm all ready for spring, summer and shows!
|This is just one corner of it. So neat!|
Sounds like you got a good haul at the tack store! Another horse is always a good idea... :)ReplyDelete
