    So Remi is 3. And still not started, became of my ongoing ankle saga.

    The neighbour is a competitive driver. She offered to help me start him in the harness. Today was say one. And I just watched. She's loving him. Says he progressed really far in just a half hour. She's figures we can hook him up soon.

    Remi loves it. He's so happy to have something to do. He's really forward and eager.

    Without further ago... my 3 yr old, was supposed to be a cutter but is too darn big, Remi

    My doctors say my ankle is healing on track. Everything is normal. I'm just frustrated. I want to be normal again.

    So proud of this 3 yr old. The neighbour posted on Facebook about how much she enjoyed him and his mind. I love when other people love my horses!

    That's so awesome! I remember when I had a bit of driving training done on Katie, it was so cool to watch her learn something new and she loved it too!

    Can't wait for more pictures as time goes on! Great thing for him to be doing while you're still healing.

    It's been really cold. Today was the first nice day in a while. So day 2! He di great again, but is not a fan of the blinders. Went through 3 bits finding the one he liked. Got off pretty easy in that department. He's almost too big for the britching but didn't care at all. Good with the crouper too. The breast collar she had was too big but she's going to look through what she has. Not ready to hook yet but really it's only day 2. He seriously loves this. He's bum high again and sticked to 14 3hh. My mentor thinks he's going to grow another hand. I sure hope not!

    I got to drive him a little today too! Really need to work on having contact. He was so confused by me. I'm such a loose rein person this will be hard to learn!

    And pictures. Cause man he's handsome!

    Time being what time is... and my ankle being what it is, we aren't very consistent yet. Today was Day 4. He's doing well though! Love this guy.
