Toga got his hocks injected and some acupuncture on Friday. He'll get this weekend off then ease back into the work he's been doing...a lot of collection which has been very frustrating for him. He's too smart, and when we change or add things (like new aids for new moves) he tries very hard to figure out what he's supposed to do. But if it's new for him and he doesn't get it right, he gets pretty wound up. It's better every day, though, and he's finally relaxing about it. The weather continues to be my nemesis - digging out the farm and broken machinery putting a strain on my riding time. The deep snow is great exercise (for the horses, it's murder on me...) so at least we're getting some help staying fit. It's so fun to watch them out playing in the snow : ) Need to jump this week I think.
