I see progress!! Whoop!! What about this winter? Will y'all be working more on the house? It would drive me around the bend to have that beautiful farm and not be waking up there every morning!
Well DH has school for work all week, and a weekend get away planned. But hoping we get time to get more done next week. Just too many vegetables that need my attention. Also battling finding filters for our respirators... but hoping that problem in currentLy solved.

What's the source of Lightenings pain? Maybe I missed reading that. Looks like the kids are enjoying their horses. :love
He has very bad teeth (my Eq dentist has been notified) so no bits and the girl who had him before was very large (200#)and riding him in poorly fitted tack that was also too large. He got a sore on his check after being rode when we looked at him, barely could move with her on... yesterday He literally dropped to his knees when I started to tighten his girth... I never tighten it completely until I mount up...which he was good for later when I was working him.

I suspect he will learn to trust you when you keep treating him well and are sensitive to his fears. With proper equipment and rider size he won't have a reason for those fears any more.
