Here's our latest foster dog, 'Browser'.
The picture isn't very good, I'll try for better ones soon.
His cuteness shines through anyway, I think!
So I went up for my lesson on Sunday morning. The ground is icy so you can't judge the walk from the pasture to the barn - it always looks funny as he carefully takes each step (he's barefoot all around). I got him ready and brought him out to the arena to warm up before my coach arrived. Got to the arena and...dead lame. He was an awful, hobbling and tripping, mess. At the walk, with no rider. I felt so bad for the poor guy, if I could have carried him back to the barn I would have!
Needless to say, I left him inside and called his owner. I hope he doesn't have something more serious going on. Here we are, Feb 16th and this month I've been on him once for 20 minutes. I'm already questioning how long it's fair to pay for a horse I can't ride. I'm reasonable (I think) and I believe as a leaser you have to expect that sometimes things like this will happen. I'm just not sure how long is reasonable. My coach was kind enough to let me ride her horse last week. Actually she's been wanting me to ride him for awhile, so it was a good opportunity. Still...
Oh, and my final thought for the day? I hate WordPerfect. I really do. Makes me see red.
