Humph. Totally sad to have discovered that P's pretty purple glittery bell boots are rubbing her. :( A muddy sand ring isn't helping any, since the sand instantly sticks and turns them into sandpaper, but still...
So, she's off her bells but otherwise great. Farrier came out to take a look at her feet yesterday and will be trimming her toes tomorrow. she's definitely ready for a trim. Her feet look solid, but the clinches are starting to poke up and her toes are a wee bit long. Farrier gave me this look like I was CRIPPLING her by not having her trimmed already... but I think it was just the typical righteous-weird-farrier look.
We'll see what magic does or doesn't happen after her trim tomorrow...
Yesterday we hacked about 30 min. She was great, though her stride was a little choppy (maybe because her bells were sanding her skin off..). Good forward movement, better with her neck and some nice canter work.
Anyway, off to the barn for another ride. The sun is shining, and I am happy. :)
