Daniel and Nightingale - Week 12

Dora had an unplanned week off this week. Last week she was difficult to catch; this week she was much better although was showing me a few signs of not being comfortable under saddle. I’m not sure if it was related to any soreness or the fact that all the mares are in season at the moment but she wasn’t very happy!

So she had a few days out in the paddock with her rugs off which she enjoyed! Sunday I had a business meeting so Bec brought her back into work with a light lunge, brush, picking up feet and a grass pick! Not that I want her on too much grass this time of year! Our paddocks are bursting with juicy grass so I am keeping an eye on her weight, behaviour and feet!

Dora is a highly sensitive and reactive horse but also extremely intelligent and soft. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off a couple of weeks ago this week!
