|I am out of new horse pictures, so this post will include random shots of my trip to Belgium last April.|
Look! An impaled fly on a pin!

and CREEPY fucking decor. That's ok, I don't need to sleep. Ever again.
Farrier said I might want to consider an iodine or keratex or durasole treatment as Fawkes' soles do seem a little soft and that probably explains the quarter flares. Although those were all rasped off and no big deal. Will have to think about if I want to go that route, haven't ever had to do that before.
Anyways, always happy to get a report of good foot health and Fawkes is always equally happy to get 24 hours off post shoeing.

But got my tourist on and took a picture anyways
Rode tonight and just had a simple hack. Still just focusing on transitions and equitation. Fawkes had two really good walk/canter transitions and was very amenable in general.
He was pretty tough to get off my right leg for the first part of the ride, but once I got after him a bit, he gave in and then was fine.
I am starting to feel more comfortable with the adjustments to my eq even though they still hurt. I need to ride like 6 hours a day for 3 weeks to break my body in!

I feel like an expert because I am pretty sure I ate it all.
