Nice Day Too
My knees are really aching. I think I am going to have to go back to my knee doctor for some more treatments.
Thought I might work a Boy or two, but just didn't make it.
This morning Tuck and Chance were romping back and forth along the fence between the paddock and the arena. Chance inside, Tuck outside. Occasionally I heard a wooden "clunk" as someone's hoof hit a fence rail. At least I know how the fence line gets knocked apart over there.
And, I am pleased to say that as he romped, Tucker was rounding himself up "on the bit"...without the bit, of course. What I like about that is that it is either an instinct or a result of training which allows the horse to be far more maneuverable. Some horses motorcyle around, always on the brink of being out of balance. When they go "on the bit" by themselves they can turn, stop, and change gaits much more efficiently, running circles around a less athletic horse.
Just an observation from one who did not ride again.
