Anyhow it all came together this morning so I loaded Cat and hauled her out to where Eurus has been and we swapped . Angela will be using Cat for her winter riding buddy until Eurus is back in the game , and he will be here, he has an appointment for chiropractic and massage and hopefully we will have him right as rain soon . Got home here and he hesitated a bit stepping out of the trailer, then his old buddy and past pen mate Phoenix called out (you all remember the all star antics of Fix and Arse?) his head popped up and he looked around , then let out a big old sigh as if to say "oh , I am home" I swear that horse tugs at your heart, he is a combo of Eeyore , and Winnie the pooh! I put him in with the girls Andee and Annie , had planned to put him by himself but ... They are fine , Annie tried a little bossy mare stuff which is funny because in a herd she is usually scared of her own spots! But Eurus just calmly moved away until she settled then parked where I suspect I will often see him, face first in a round bale!
Cat also traveled well and Angela has already had her saddle and gone for a spin this evening. She says she is doing very well and the wolf tooth she removed for her a while back does seem to have been the root of some of her issues (glad we got it fixed before we pushed anything )
(borrowed fro Angela's pictures )
I think Cat will do well she is at a barn where they do a fair amount of roping and jackpots , so lots of time standing around watching the show will be good for her too .
The tack sale was good, but COLD ! in an unheated arena with the doors often left open , made for an uncomfortable day. I did make some sale s and a lot of contacts as well as bumped into a few old friends .
I met with the folks from Higher Trials and had a good talk , I am quite interested in the Equine assisted learning programs , more specifically the facilitator training ,. they too seemed to think it would be a good fit with my history so I will be looking further into it, there will be a course held locally in future which would be great so stay tuned I may have a new career path opening up !
this picture, I took on the way to the sale , the sunrise was so pretty!
Stay safe my friends
