Shoulda Kept My Mouth Shut

I never should have told Tucker I was going to ride him today.

Last night he pulled his left front shoe.

I've wrapped his foot with Gorilla tape and Elastoplast for the time being. And, of course, I called my farrier.

It was just about time for trims and shoeing anyhow, but it would have been nice to get on for a bit.  If the Cavello boot fits that foot...not sure...or one of the EasyBoots I have, I may try a little ride later anyhow. But the trouble there is that usually with only one boot on, Tuck's stride is really uneven.

However, we shall see.  More later.


  1. I always jinx myself like that too! Hope you get a ride in on someone.

  2. Oh dear - it's always something!

  3. That stinks!

    Maybe you should start putting bell boots on him after you tell him he's going to be ridden! ;)

  4. i so know that tempted fate feeling...
