Fern Valley's Phoenix, that is !!!
My blue eyed handsome boy is home, and we are HAPPY!!!!
I went to try him out and bring him home ,and I am very pleased. He is settled, willing soft and responsive, just as he should be.I think I will keep him LOL
First I watched Justin ride him a bit , not as much of what he has been doing is shown but it was a busy day there getting ready for a futurity. He has been used to turn back cattle and also they have been "working him on the flag " (useful for cutting and penning) I would have liked to see that, but I needed to get down there more than I did .Sometimes being busy is good, but sometimes it sucks! Anyhow as you can see , my "Fix" did get over his fire breathing dragon moment/s that he had when he first got there and has settled into the good horse I knew he could be.
Then , I got on. Geoff kindly agreed to take a few pictures of me .Thankfully after the trainwreck which was me mounting up! Lets just say that although it was not pretty I got there (bad hip, and knee, sore shoulder all conspired to make a mess of it ) And that in itself also showed what a star Phoenix is , ! He stood , feet solidly planted and waited for me to flopscramblewrithe onto his back!
