When we last left off, Eros was a bit off, and I was waiting for the vet to come out. I thought it was his front ankle again. My vet came on Friday, and good news was it wasn't up front! He was just in need of a little maintenance for the hind end, so we took care of that. He got the weekend off (we hand walked and hand grazed instead of riding) and is back to work this week. It's supposed to rain here tomorrow, so I'll probably go see him after work and see how he's feeling.
Originally, my last lesson of the season with trainer was also scheduled for Friday, but I switched it to Saturday so I could meet the vet with Eros. Plus it poured buckets.
Pammon had a little fill right front, but it was non-reactive and he looked perfectly sound, so we decided to go ahead with the lesson, but keep the fences small and the courses easy. Trainer had me do one crazy bending line to boost my confidence, but otherwise it was mostly straight lines and wide turns.

Rio of course got plenty of grazing time in this weekend. It was relatively nice out, though the cooler fall weather isn't my favorite. Bring back the 80's please!
Sunday I finally found time to get the puggers out for a stroll! We don't go much in the summertime because the asphalt is way too hot for their little feetsies. But it was a lovely evening. We even stopped to visit with a couple of our horsey neighbors. It's so nice living where I do. It's like every third house has horses.
|although honestly, it looks a lot worse in this picture than it does in real life.|
|Pammon is appalled I would suggest such a thing.|
|This guy though with the snuggles...|
|This sunset was incredible. Real life was even better.|
|Looks quite sound here...|
|My pony is cuter than yours.|
