I have been having such fun riding Cartman out on our trails that I haven't even been taking new pictures, just enjoying the rides!
Cartman's leg is almost, almost healed all the way. I am still putting a little Neosporin on it, hoping to totally avoid a scar.
We've been climbing hills, crossing streams, jumping logs, and he's really sure footed! Whew! That's a real blessing to me. I really wanted a horse that I could trust to find a good path along the trail without me micro-managing.
I'm trying to do some arena-type work once a week out in the field (while its dry!) we're practicing bending, doing circles (no they aren't really round yet :), and moving off the leg. I have a lead on a possible dressage instructor for some winter lessons.
Other than that I've starting to get pretty busy at work, so time may be limited for a while. Hope everyone else is enjoying the late summer weather!
