How Not To Drag An Arena

The orange tractor

The huge tractor behaved very well.

The driver had issues.

Some swerving.  Perhaps swearing.  Promise this was legal, non-intoxicated, driving.

Switching into second gear, and pushing the level from turtle to rabbit position, Orange Tractor and I did our best.  Nobody got hurt.

These things don’t come with brakes, instead you use the clutch to come to a stop.  Takes a bit getting used to.

Lets not get started on the crooked reverse park job at the end.  The attached drag jackknifing until I gave up.


Valiosa has been lovely.  Increasing suppleness in tiny small steps.  She’s making her right jaw more available and is just a little more steady in the contact.  Sometimes it’s hard to see the improvements, but they are there.


A couple of times with work over 4 pvc ground poles has helped a bit.  Nothing complicated, just easy and fun with the four-year old.


Ordered my cold to go away by this weekend.  If so;  new mounted pictures on Monday.  You know, since you’re extremely invested in reading about our bobbing around…  Straight necked, shoulder popping, and barrel bracing and all!

  1. Looks like C’s booty after I clipped him without cleaning him first! 😉 Looking forward to the new pictures, in all their shoulder-popping barrel-bracing glory!
