Yesterday I spent a bit of quality time with Mas. I gave him lots of hugs and kisses, brushed him, picked his ice ball feet, did a bit of moving the hind end and front end, and played some circling and driving games. We also worked on him backing up while I was behind him, lifting up on his tail. He is getting softer with the yo-yo game (backing up from me while I’m standing in front of him) as well. I can wiggle my finger a bit or move my arms slightly and he backs up. If I could spend 30 minutes a day with him I think he would respond to queues easier and be lighter. He is a very smart boy! Spending time with horses, especially a horse that I love, makes me feel optimistic, light hearted, and hopeful. It makes me realize that all is well in my life. Mas is something like hope for me.
