Good news all the way around

Here is  Remington- Rem or Remmy... formerly known as TC or The Colt.

He has been gelded and his teeth pulled out. The mouth looks so much better.
I took my Dad out to see him, but he wouldn't get into the pictures..yet.  
I didn't ride him, but we lunged a bit. He was a punk about it too! 
Didn't want to go clockwise! Of course he eventually did go- but sheesh.! I'm sure hoping this was just an anomaly! 
Horse shows are in the middle of April and Jaq says he will be ready to go show.  I'm ok with that. I have a whole new pack of big girl bloomers!
He'll get new shoes next week, and I'll ride him next Tuesday. I wish I wasn't two hours away right now, I want to be with him everyday!
In the meantime, I am working with Slick. He stands perfectly still when I brush and clean his feet. He's learning to get on the bit, and round his back. I still have to take him into a larger paddock to ride, but I don't have one available- it's turned to mush with the rain we just received. 
He's just going to make someone a super nice horse- he is so sweet and loving. Two more months and I hope I'll be able to put up an ad. 

In other news...

I've been writing!
And about to set forth on a big-really big- art installation.
