Starting Stiff as a Rod

Jul 13, 2011

Am thinking also to keep the mounted “work” to a couple of times a week for now and focus on continuing to loosen her and get her shifted and “right” in her work–loose flexible and relaxed with just enuf saddle work to make sure she continues to feel comfortable with it. Does any of this sound right to you guys? and any other suggestions? I am giving her back and haunches good deep rubs whether we have worked or not to try and make sure she stays muscularly as loose as I can….funny—was massaging her poll and upper neck the other day—she started yawning over and over and twisted her neck around to me some much she practically turned herself inside out…lol. Was the funniest goofiest thing, she was practically looking up at the ceiling.

Then I thought, oh my goodness this is glorious, and had to try even more, so I veered off, down the pasture, and sped up a bit – he followed right along, tossing his head. We must have played like that for a good hour off and on, and I could tell we both had a blast.

A “Familiar Ghost” named “Casper”

Aug 1, 2008

Ghost (aka “Casper”) has settled in just fine. He’s a little worried about the golf carts we use on the farm, and he’s not too sure about water troughs, but other than that he’s having the time of his life. He is breath taking and gorgeous. Thank you again for this lovely animal. He is incredible. I loved working…
