April 7, 2010
Cindy headed over after work and met Gary and LBR. They had finished grooming and lunged for a bit. Gary had trimmed LBR's mane and he looked quite handsome (LBR though Gary did too). Gary rode LBR first for a while in the sand arena. LBR was tacked using his copper-roller snaffle (favorite), but for some reason he was very mouthy tonight.
Cindy then rode LBR working on flat work at the walk and trot. LBR did not seem to want to move forward...maybe he was a little tender from the shoeing yesterday. Cindy did a couple of patterns of cross-rails and then walked LBR on the loose rein to cool down.
While Cindy de-tacked and groomed LBR, Gary took the tractor down to LBR's paddock and leveled the hay/mud. Cindy brought LBR down toward the paddock and let him graze in the common area until Gary returned with treats. LBR also got a fresh round bale of hay in his paddock later in a new/dry area.
