More and more I like the way this horse moves out, despite one hell of a muscle knot that's sitting tight in his left neck just in front of the wither. Next on the 'to-do' list is getting him and a very aware horse-language equine chiro therapist together. After that, I'm reckoning the topline will lengthen right out, and the whole stride double. The purists will say, quite rightly, I should be wearing gloves handling lines. There’s a reason I’m not…and for that, tune in to next week’s explanation. Photo by Elise Bealer
