    Thank you.

    My goal is a happy partner. It will take as long as it takes to get her there.

    Now if I could just get someone to take pictures of us, I would have proof, lol.

    Ugh, I woke up with a fever/cold this morning. Looks like I won't be back to the barn until Monday now.

    Finally got back to the barn today. I'm still too sick to do much. But Charm is brushed and has a full belly.

    Her feet are looking better. Or at least they haven't started chipping again, yet. I started putting Karetex hoof hardener on them, so we will see.

    Hopefully I will be better tomorrow, lol.

    Well this week is a bust for training. I'm still too sick to go back to the barn.

    I keep hoping to get better quick. But no luck. Just have to hope I'm better next week.

    Finally getting back to the barn. Not sure how Charm will act, but I will do my routine and see how far we get.

    Well Charm let me know she was not happy being left alone for a week.

    She was lying down in the field when I went to get her. She got up and Instead of coming to me , she took off back to the barn.

    Once caught she was fine, until I went to put the bridle on. What a pita, but I got it on her. That thankfully that was the extent of her little show of resistance.

    I did our mounting block routine but decided not to try to ride her. I didn't want the day to end badly.

    Finished the day with a cleaner horse, good hay and apples. She looked much happier when she went back out.

    We will see if she is better for me tomorrow.

    One good thing is her feet are holding together. No new chips. 2 weeks until the next trim.

    A better day today. Lots of people and general commotion. Charm had lots to think about. But still did everything I asked of her.

    Got on and did a couple of laps of the arena. Hopefully Thursday will be the same.

    I have the very first picture of myself with Charm. I think it was taken on day 2 or 3.

    Since then I have lost 30 lbs. And Charm has gained weight, lol.
