Slow Comeback

I checked the dates on the calendar for the next upcoming events. The first part of August is the Darby up in Paulden at the house of the Atonnas. If any of you recall- this was our first outing 2 years ago now. Hard to believe it has been that long already and we have been driving, been to 2 CDE's and various other events, but time does fly when you're having fun.

I'm not sure at this point if we will make it or not and although it is 2 months away and there's plenty of time to plan for it, get Kat ready and back to work and all, I'm sure it will be here before we know it. So much to do.

Kat has been turned out the last week and with all of this down time has gotten a bit chubby. I will be bringing him back into shape the end of the month, start lunging him and working him in long lines, getting him brought back slowly. He's on a diet which may change to Bermuda blend pellets to help him shed some weight since it's far easier to regulate than hay.

It will be interesting to see if the time off helped him reclaim his brain and we can do a quick refresher and move on to different work or if we need to scrap everything and start all over at square one. I'm pretty sure he remembers a lot, I just hope it is all the good stuff and not so much the bad!
