  4. Hi Everyone, I am pleased to say that I am finally back in the saddle seven months, post shoulder surgery. I was allowed to get back into it on February first. I have had a few gentle rides on my Blueboy (barrel on legs) since and ready to get back to our QS journey, albeit a little slowly. I almost have full range of movement back and my physio is now working on building my strength now so WOOOOOOHOOOO!!!!!!! I look forward to catching up this coming weekend with most of the Vic girls at the WBPD !!!! Happy WBPD to all!!!! Shell and Blue!
  5. Hi Claire, She looks beautiful. I have always had a soft spot for Welsh "D". Look forward to seeing your journey on her.

    Welcome Danni and Jack.
  8. Hi Sandra, When I first started trimming Blue's feet myself, I found that he would try and pull his hind legs away from me quite a lot. Naturally getting frustrated was not the answer. In the end I decided to ask for his hoof and hold it just long enough and then put it down just before he decided to pull it away. I gave him lots of praise and reward by rubbing on his hind leg. Each time the amount I could hold his leg grew. He is very good now and was never a problem for his farrier in the first place or when i would be picking out his hooves. Obviously he was testing my leadership. I would also just do his two front hooves one day and then his hinds another day so that I had more time to deal with this issue. It also gave my back and shoulders more time to relax. How are things going with the trimming now Sandra?
  9. Congratulations Claire and Codee! Welcome to level 2.
