Steady On with Mr. Gus

Quick followup to my post on Gus.  He seems to be doing great!  I threw him on the lunge before I hopped on, just to see what I was working with... and all was right with the world.
Surveying his vast swamp-kingdom
Don't get me wrong, this horse is never going to be 100% sound, but I snapped a quick video so you guys can see what "good-ish" Gus looks like.  I realized I so rarely have videos of him I should do a better job of documenting his good vs bad days.

He usually is a bit more forward than this, but he seems to know that when I have one hand on my phone he can slow down and I can't do much about it.

Clever boy....

Glad to see a couple longer rides aren't aggravating anything.  Very encouraging indeed...


  1. He is so stinken cute!

    Seriously all of your horses are so nice!

    1. Aww thanks. Gus is just *the best.* I would LOVE to find footage of him in his heyday. I bet he was even more ridiculously adorable.
