Tim loves the girls!
Worked yesterday with Tim. You may remember he is the gray horse that Kathy and I got because he was bucking people off. Anyway, we worked, for the most part, on turning on the backend. He does a pretty good job turning on the front end but gets confused when asked for the other move. In order to teach your horse to spin or roll back he needs to understand this exercise. He did well but we have a long way to go before it is really good.
As I get older I'm beginning to understand that, had I taken my time when I was younger, things would have turned out a lot better in a lot of situations. And when it comes to horses if we can apply that magic pill to our training the results will come much faster then we ever thought. Our horses are never going to develop as fast as we would like so we might as well get over that as soon as possible.
Trailer update: Charles and Nancy got the new trailer doors on the trailer. The new doors are on the left. Very excited about this. The door you see on the right is one large door and on the roads that we live on out here on the ranch, they just fall apart. I don't know how many times I have had to weld on the old doors. Will probably have to weld on the new ones, as time goes by, but I hope it not as much. Charles did a great job getting them on for me.
I'm off to the dump this morning. The dump is more like a social event then anything else, and right now I can't decide what to wear. Perhaps a cup of coffee will clear my vision.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
