April 15, 2009

Tonight we stuck to the routine. We groomed in the middle of the roundpen (one of the retired horses was grazing in the common area).

We worked LBR in round pen at walk/trot/canter both directions. He's doing better at staying on the rail rather than cutting corners. He's attentive and getting better at his transitions.

After about 30 minutes in the round pen we headed to the main barn for grooming in the grooming rack. LBR went in easily and turned around after a brief pause to look out the window. The new twist tonight was there was another horse being groomed when we entered and another horse was brought in while we were grooming.

Although he acknowledged their existence, he didn't seem to be bothered. We groomed and washed his chaffed pasterns (using a newly bought sponge - much easier) and although he gets tired of standing on three legs, he behaved well.

We headed to the common area for a little grazing and then back to the paddock for the night.
