Push and Pull

Jet and I had a great ride yesterday! A nice flat/crossrail ride in the field and a long trail ride and walk around the street was the perfect way to spend our last Sunday together. Here are some pictures

On a more frustrating note, Baby Thoroughbred (who I think I am going to name Boomer - thoughts?) pulled a shoe just a day after he got them. Uggh, frustrating! He is definitely a lot more comfortable moving forward with shoes so fingers crossed that we will be going consistently soon!

Here he is before the shoe came off:

Luckily it is getting put back on today. He should be moving to a new barn with an indoor sometime this week/weekend!
