This week has been full of progress. Josie has been doing well at her canter. We moved her into a new stall and she loves having a new friend next to her. She is a really social horse.
Our wonderful and amazing Equine Chiropractor, Dr. Fred Mousel from Alton, Iowa was here on Sunday to give Josie a much needed treatment. We have found that Chiropractic treatment on horses in training is almost as necessary as food and water. The past 4 years we have seen dramatic results. I think Dr. Mousel was curious prior to arrival on how his "wild mustang" patient would react. I am certain that when he left, he had a soft spot for Josie and told me on numerous occasions how pleasantly surprised he was with her demeanor. Josie's was "out" in her right hip and wither area. I am sure that in a few weeks we will see a horse that is traveling even better than she is now.
Her mane is growing!
