All these pictures are post-difficulty. Christine & Tomas did not have the best of rides, and her wrist/hand is now sporting a handsome brace to show for their bonding time together. Argh! We attempted to do a little hill work, but Tomas threw a bucking fit as he was cresting the first hill and Christine was unceremoniously dumped. She's one tough cookie, got right back up and we came around to do the hill again. No more bucking, but he was definitely not happy about doing the work of climbing the hill. Conveniently, the equine body worker is already scheduled for Wednesday, and I'll follow up his therapy with some acupuncture. Hopefully, we'll get Tomas straightened out and Christine's injury will heal quickly.
The pond scum which the ponies actually thought was tasty.
Tomas sampling the scum. Ewww!
