|Standing tied amidst the mess.|
I needn't worry because while I brushed out Suzie the little pony stood still and although he attempted to eat what little grass was on the ground and paw a few times, he was quiet. Once I turned my attention to him and began brushing I saw an opportunity to practice yielding the haunches and shoulders when I poke/ place pressure with my hands. Since his episode of "I don't wanna", I've taken it upon myself to really hammer it into his little brain that pressure = move away not into. He's really blossomed with it, which is great to see.

she looks pretty damn good for being 21.
There is little to update in the way of Suzie. She gets shoes on this coming Wednesday and has been on Farrier's Formula for almost a week now (will update with my findings on this after a good solid month). She'll start her ulcer program on Sunday and I'll report back with my findings after I've had some conclusive data. Other than that, we've been enjoying the sunshine and I'm trying my best to spend lots of time with them despite working late, housework, and other responsibilities.
|Certainly doesn't look like much.|
I was supposed to drive Spud lastnight but I forgot my keys on my desk at work and didn't realize it until I had already badged out and was in the carpark. All the walking back and forth (through security) had me going late so I headed home right away and the Boy and I went to the properties to cut down some trees and get a start on our dream. It was hard work, lugging around underbrush and cut logs but I'm excited to see it start to take shape.
The plan is, once our eight days off comes around there will be much more in the way of cutting/ burning, etc. It's exciting to get started and although it will be a lot of hard work, it is so worth it.
