Saturday afternoon diary – an Alfie update and some lovely bonding time with Copper

Here’s the good news with Alfie – he’s getting better. The bad news is we still don’t know exactly what is causing the on again off again lameness. His Lymes test came back negative. I’m reaching out to another vet for a second opinion. But for now at least, Alfie isn’t in as much discomfort as he was before.❤️

Curren situation – food coma

Copper and I had a lovely lesson today. We are making progress in his more stiff direction. Today he thought he would challenge me a bit with a small buck – which did nothing but take me by surprise. But after he let out his opinion – our lesson ended on a very good note.

After my lesson Copper and I took a walk and spent some time in one of the paddocks. It’s a large field and when I let him loose I figured he would want to run and explore. Nope…he stood with me and walked wherever I walked. We did this for the first time earlier in the week – I think this is now “our” thing.😊

The beautiful Copper

After our walk, we came back inside. I pulled up a chair to sit and rest and he came over to hang with me. I start singing to him the song I made up for him – what doesn’t everyone sing a self written song to their horse 😂?! Next thing I know he’s asleep. Right next to me. He loves me.❤️🐴

He’s totally asleep.
