First Ride on Skip

Posted on 08/25/2006 in misc

Today was the first day Delaney has been able to ride Skip since we brought him home last Saturday. Monday and Tuesday were get acclimated days, Wednesday was teeth floating day, Thursday was the farrier, and today she finally got him under saddle.

There were no problems at all. His under saddle manners are better than his ground manners.

He also was turned out with the herd for the first time last night. He had a couple of bite marks, which is to be expected, but otherwise that was uneventful too.

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
