Jag had met his new farrier today. He was excellent. He does have a bit of a taste for the finer things in life such as baby sweet carrots, fresh apples, and horse cookies. He even will help himself to the horse cookies in my fanny pouch. He is a true gentleman and takes them gently. I have been riding him in a dressage saddle with a hackmore and you know how we thought Jag did not like to trot. Well, he does a nice extended walk and is just getting use to leg yields. We rode him this past weekend with his sister, Tanya,an adopted blind 27 year old standardbred. He was not quite sure what to think but did very nicely.He is lunged in a french link snaffle bit and does accept it quite well.
He almost has the bow down and will reach both sides for a horse cookies without moving!
Next week he will have a personal body work done on him to help with his tightness in his mouth. It is called the masterson technique and I think he will get some release and will be able to accept the bit more.
If you have not guessed, I am a so proud and thankful Jag adopted me!!! he nickers for me. He just got his own new supplements and is putting on weight. He is a little spoiled and truly a blessing in my life. Jag wanted me to add, thanks for finding Mary Ellen, she treats me like royality like an Arabian should be!!
