Then right after I got back it was spring shots and sensitive red heads get a couple days off after that. Nothing dramatic happened this time anyways, no swelling, fever, or other miscellaneous reactions. Woohoo!

His trot is definitely become a thing of beauty. With basically no effort on the rider's part, he drops down into his hunter frame and marches along in perfect rhythm. He swings his back and has gotten much more comfortable to ride. He used to fling his head up if you pulled him off the rail and while that isn't perfect yet, he is now staying much more consistent through circles and across the diagonal.
Canter is also coming along although transitions are still about 50/50. So we have had some nice rides, but nothing super exciting. Trainer R is planning on asking one of the other boarders to jump him some more in preparation for selling. I haven't met her but she is a very talented rider so it can only help Fawkes to get some over fences miles with her.
