I'm in the middle of boot rearranging as usual so I didn't end up with boots for Chief today, but the footing on the horse camp loop is such that he traveled comfortably. We did a couple of trots and for the first time Chief didn't break to the canter! He is definitely getting more fitness in maintaining the trot. I only see him once a week so I see him with relatively fresh eyes each time and when I saw him today he definitely looked like a horse that gets ridden as opposed to a plump pasture pet like when we started. Huzzah!
Our giant pumpkin continues to expand daily. Here is our doxie, Wilbur, staring down from it's great heights! The Renegade team from last weekend would be proud of all this color! ;-)
