This is what I arrived to on Sunday afternoon:
No work for the Diva until farrier can fix this shoe. If she loses a back shoe, I can still ride her in the indoor. But a front? No riding due to her club foot / bad knee without both front shoes.
I can not complain too much - first time this winter she has lost a shoe or in this case, shifted a shoe almost off her hoof. Mud is horrible right now. We get a few hours above freezing everyday just to have it fall below freezing at night.
What to do...I could start on this:
Oh, Riva loves this :) Actually, she is not horrible for mane pulling. My daughter tells me many horses she works with have to be sedated. But I am slow at it - takes me a few days to get it done.
Pre-shoe shift, we are making progress on the 1 loop portion of the Training Level Test 3. Canter transitions are improving, Downward transitions are better than upward. Waiting on our Coggins paperwork to arrive in the mail in order to mail off our first shows entries for 2013.
Already looking forward to the weekend as our temps are supposed to be the 50's!
