Happy Christmas and Happy New Year, Solomon
Solomon - 17th December from Nic Barker on Vimeo.
With the help of Fayley and Will, who had come to see Isha, I managed yesterday to get some footage of Solomon on a circle. He wasn't entirely sure that going round on circles was a good idea, as you can see(!) and would much rather have done galloping about in the snow.
Nevertheless, he agreed to give it a shot eventually. As you can see, rather like Kingsley, his work on a small circle is not 100% yet, but its enormously improved from the very unlevel movement he had when he first came.
[ETA: I just went back and checked his paperwork and his vet assessed him as 5/10 lame on a circle on the left rein before he arrived.]
I am hoping for a very happy New Year for Solomon!
PS: We took the footage before the new snow, which came last night - no doubt there will be pics to follow but its proper now ;-)
