Forgot to post these photos last week, but here's some new shots of Gringo. I definitely need to tackle that mane again... it's getting LONG.

Unfortunately, he's having a lot of issues with his left front again. Still very much lame on that leg... and nothing seems to be helping. Hmm. Not sure what to do next.

Left Heel

Nothing really new. Just a new photo of Gus's heel. Taken 6/11. Seems to be healing slowly but surely. Still looks really sore/painful.

Will have more updates/blogs in the future. Busy with wedding plans again.

We cantered!!!

Well, decided to bite the bullet and try cantering Gus yesterday for the first time in over a year. Needless to say, he's not forgotten how to canter.

Here's the video:

While watching the video (and I admit I've gotten sloppy!) Gus looks much better. You can definitely tell that his hindend is still very weak, but he's looking very happy and comfortable with what I'm asking him to do. Though, I do admit, that I'm not asking much at all... so he kinda does his own thing, not sitting down on his hindend, on the forehand, etc. Still, though, we cantered!

I'm really wishing for a nicer video camera for my birthday. Not sure if I'll be getting it or not... maybe I'll make it a gift to myself. We shall see.
