My mom is over from the redwood coast for a visit and as usual I recruited her to take some horsey photos. Desire need a full trim and Sheza joined her for some patience training in the cross ties.
Distance Depot came yesterday, I look forward to trying it out! It's basically just a strip of beta that will attach to the bit, put that on over her rope halter, with a loop at the poll that wraps around the halter for some security. I hope it will help both of us--she is sensitive behind her right ear, hates having it pulled through the brow band and sometimes slings her head quite hard away from it, putting my head in danger if I don't move quickly. The bodywork gal I had out last week found Desire was out of adjustment on the right side poll and worked on it quite a bit but it seems to always be a bit of a sensitive spot for Desire so I hope this simple light bridle with no brow band will be more comfortable for her. For me, having the rope halter there under it will be nice for handling her when she's feeling Haat!
Off for a Sunday constitutional around the neighborhood with my mom, I think we'll take Georgia dog and Sheza-filly--I'll let you guess which one I'll have my mom lead ;-)
