>Twisted steel

>Here is what is left of the mangled gate in which my horse got herself tangled. Not ending the sentence in a preposition – did you see that? Test time…

She is still going along soundly though – so lots more trot. Thing is, she is so very sound right now that she is taking her normal big, over reaching steps (which means she reaches farther with her hind legs than her front foot prints) so today – she pulled her front shoe right off. Now we wait for the farrier to come reset, can’t ride without the shoe.

If it isn’t one thing it is ten more…

But she feels really good! And that makes me happy.
