Today we had a quick session with our new mare Sierra, she has come to be known as "Kay" from her hip brand. She has not been worked with for quite some time and shows she was very much a pet. Some lessons will be required to have her settle down and get some ground manners back. She responded well after about 30 minutes in the round pen so I am encouraged by that. We will see how her gait is after she is trimmed. Our farrier will be here Thursday to get her feet under control. It would appear It has been at least 8 or 9 months with no farrier care, and standing in mud which has lent to soft and long hooves. Monroe is solo for a while, a slight swelling of his left hind is resolved, but he will stay in for extra feed and supplements, being on pasture and hay has not been quite enough for him. Tomorrow we are hoping will bring sunshine as we expect some ground leveling, right now is is cold and windy and snowing in the hills...
