So Johnny lives back in Memphis, where my other trainer is. So every weekend, I drive 6 hours round trip to school him a few times before I come back to school for the week. When you have a previously suicidal horse (kidding...kind of) it's a little nerve racking to leave them "unattended" (aka without me staring at him to make sure he's still breathing) for days at a time. He's been doing just wonderful lately.*knock on wood* The last 4 or 5 times I came out he hasn't been bleeding or anything odd so I'm very happy with him :)
And fortunately, I have the best mom in the whole world. She has an extensive horse background, which has always been very, very nice to have around, I will say. She goes out a couple times a week and makes sure he has hay in his nets and checks on him. She sometimes does supplements too! Today she even picked his stall and let him eat "buffet style" for a while. He is SO spoiled. Both of my kids are.
