Exciting morning here! I got Raven out to finish trimming his feet. He was fairly well-behaved. Afterwards, I put a tarp down and had him walking and standing on it. He is almost bombproof. Thank goodness! The next thing I knew, the dogs had lifted the latch on the gate, despite the clip keeping it latched. Bear comes flying past Raven and me, on his way to chase rabbits. Here comes Tashi and Carson. They both do not like it when I am near the horses. They started barking and nipping at his heels. Carson, splint and all. I’m trying to hang on to Raven, because if he pulled away, I was afraid those 2 would follow him off into the sunset. I finally managed to grab Carson and drag him off to the hitching post to tie him. I pushed Tashi into the shed. Raven was ok, and calmed down immediately. I ended up with a rope burn and pulled my already “iffy” back. But, the animals are ok and I have tylenol. I then rode Tonka for awhile in his hoof boots, as he needs to keep moving to build up his hooves’ inner structures. I hope tomorrow will be less eventful!

    Thanks! Mind over matter. It’s been hurting since 1987. Just ignore it now. Just glad the animals are ok!
