I brought Biscuit up around 12:30 today. I thought he looked a little tenderfooted from having his hooves done yesterday.
I sat and talked to LeAnn P. and Allison about Sababba. I understand that Sue maybe interested in selling her. I questioned her about Sababba and whether she thought we would make a good match. I like Biscuit but he isn't a finished horse. I think I could handle Sababba with no problems. We kicked it back and forth and if I could afford 3 horses she'd be mine is Sue would sell.
I would like to ride Sababba and my reasons for wanting her is that I think I could do more with her than with Biscuit. I could do low level endurance rides but that may just be a pipe dream of mine. Barry could run endurance on her.
LeAnn, Allison and I put Biscuit in the arena to free longe him. He did pretty good at first and then we got him to canter - well, Biscuit being Biscuit - it was galloping. He clonked his fetlocks on the rails a couple of times. He runs into the corners and good grief, you could bust his butt and he will just stand there. I was in a corner trying to keep him going. Allison said "wow, never seen a horse that would just stand there when you are waving your arms and advancing towards them". Biscuit is a little odd duck that way. He konked his fetlocks and looked like he was limping. Sigh. Poor baby...he is hard headed and we worked him into a good sweat.
I hosed him off until he was cook and scraped him. I took him back down to his paddock and he was moving slow. He may be a little sore from being longed two days in a row after laying off for a month. I had to run pick Barry up at Philpott's and I returned and gave Biscuit a little hit of Bute be cause he seemed a little sore.
Hoping he is fine for Ebenezer. If not, I won't be riding. : - (
