Ouchers Off and On
I gave Tucker a quick lunge last night. He started off just fine, looking quite sound and striding out nicely on his shod feet.
Then, he suddenly started limping. The only thing I can figure for the moment is that he stepped on a stone with his previously bruised sole and made himself sore. I did not press the point with him, so I'll see how he is tonight. I would like to start riding him, but I don't want him feeling miserable when I do.
Rain and storms were threatened for this morning. So far, where I am, not much has materialized. I feel a little bad because I did close off the pasture before I left because I always worry with lightning and the hill out there. The Boys tend to think its great to stand out there, exposed on top of the hill, as the dark clouds gather and thunder starts to rumble. They'll be fine without that grass to nibble as the paddocks around the barn have a little grass as well. And, of course, they have a nice bit of hay to keep them occupied.
So much for now. More, probably later.
