Journey is a Mystery
She is the most unpredictable horse when it comes to performance. Some days I think we will never finish an LD let alone anything else. Then one day suddenly she is this fire breathing dragon and I have no idea what precipitated the change! Her last work session was a very concentrated session of steep uphill training. It was only about an hour long but she was actually foamy under her breast collar and halter, a cool day but she lathered up she worked so hard. She had some time off, and today I could hardly hold the wooly beast! Maybe we'll make it yet...
