Things have been going well. Liam is making great progress and is getting much stronger. He is learning to maintain a 3 beat canter without hanging on the reins and is able to go longer and longer each day. He has gotten much more rhythmic and consistent as well, especially in his trot work.
Here’s a sample of our recent ride:

At home, there is a litter of kittens in the barn, and one chubby little grey one really wants to be Liam’s little brother!
He is just over 3 weeks old now, and still lives with his mother and 5 brothers and sister in a box in the barn office. They are sweet and fluffy, and very friendly from all the handling they get! Stop by and meet them, and let me know if you have any suggestions for a name!!
