    Nice picture of Zorro.
    How do those collars fit on a horse whose neck ties in REALLY low? Not just low, but "lower than a snakes belly" low?

    I think it would work just fine. It's soft and basically wraps around the neck in whatever position the neck is laying. This style works GREAT on donkeys and their necks typically tie in super low. This style also needs to be very snug to function correctly. I see photos of this style breast collar on horses and ponies that are too large for the equine all the time. And people decide they hate it because they are using one that is not sized correctly. LOL!

    10 minutes ground driving Cappy, then my husband hitched and drove him for a little while. Just long enough to stretch his legs because he is so out of shape. Cappy was very happy to have his Peeps playing with him. He's a sociable critter.
    20 minutes ground driving Peanut.

    I did 40 minutes of ground driving Zorro. We are having one storm after another today with HIGH winds. When we started out Zorro was pretty shivery. He wanted to trot and jig, I'm sure because he was cold. I didn't want him to hurt himself but he spent the first 5 minutes bucking pretty hard around the arena. LOL! Then he would toss in a good hard buck for the next 15 minutes off and on. I had trot poles out and when he learned that I liked it when he trotted them, with his head down and so floaty then he would make a bee line for those poles whenever I even looked at them. He is so funny!

    After long lining then we went for a long walk around the track.

    35 minutes ground driving Cappy followed by 20 minutes of driving. He was fizzy and naughty and generally obstreperous. In the ensuing hubbub I forgot my self imposed ban on driving him and hitched him up. We had a nice drive. He was happy. I was happy. The sun came out :).
    The End.

    60 minutes driving Annie today.

    Starting to get hot here so she was super relaxed. She is finally learning to stand pretty square and is resting her back foot pretty regularly. This girl is coming along!

    10 minutes ground driving and 20 minutes driving (hitched) Cappy.
    About 20 minute or so ground driving Peanut, I lost track of time, I was gabbing with my mom.

    All caught up.

    Has anyone seen the Warhorse endurance challenge? I saw it on one of my FB horse groups. It's like a virtual race where you log your miles with your horse (riding, driving, hiking, running, whatever) and when you get to 100 miles they send you your medal. Anyway... I thought it was an interesting and possibly motivating idea. My son is doing it with his horse Ferb this summer. I would love to do it with Clementine. She's the horse I want to do CDE with eventually. I can't imagine how good of a horse I would have after going 100 miles with her in a summer. I bet Mindy is close (or past) that mark with Zorro this year.
