VBA Nugget & Tamara Janus Week 11


On Friday, we started off the with a trip up the range to Blackbutt. We met up with Mel from Horsetrax Oz again & set off on another adventure. This one led through the back streets onto the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. After a few hours we came to the township of Blackbutt, there we stopped at the local pub (Hotel Radnor) for a break and some lunch. Nugget took it all in his stride, even stopping for a pat and to meet a few of the locals.

During the week Nugget has been enjoying being in a large paddock with a few of my other horses & having a bit of down time. As we are now half way I wanted to give him a break.

On Wednesday we had a visit from Northside Barefoot Trimming for Nugget's next hoof trim. His feet are looking AMAZING! Such great shape and very strong for riding over all types of terrain.

On Thursday we saddled up again and worked on our responsiveness and forward. He is still a bit on the lazy side and likes to stop and look at people or horses that wander by... but overall Im happy with his progress.

Thankyou for reading & look forward to sharing more of our journey with  you
