Teeth and Makeovers
So, why no post this past week, you may be asking? Well…not much to tell, at least where Zeke is concerned.
We didn’t get to work much at all, due to my work schedule. Then I ended up spending one of my days off having what was left of a tooth pulled. Yeah, stay away from Milk Duds, is all I can say! Pulled my crown off with part of what was left of my tooth. The dentist said it couldn’t be saved, so out it went. Too bad they don’t give you some kind of credit for returning the crown, those things are expensive!
Anyhow, what did go on with Zeke? He had a fun turnout day, which he really enjoyed, and one work day of ground driving that ended in an argument. I asked him to go past some stacked white blocks, he said no, and fighting ensued. When he grudgingly went past them – both ways – without trying to run or tangle up the lines, we did a last trip around the arena and called it a day.
Good news, though – his registration papers with the American Mustang and Burro Association (http://www.ambainc.net/) came in, and he is officially registered now as “Ezekiel”. We didn’t have to add any qualifiers or anything, though I had put “Clover Mountain Ezekiel” as the back-up, since that’s where he’s from. But he has a nice certificate now, and should we ever decide to show in any discipline, he can earn points.
This weekend is the Extreme Mustang Makeover in Norco, CA, and Cindy will be competing with her Makeover horse, Hannah. It will be great fun, and I’m looking forward to what Cindy, and the other trainers will do. It is amazing what a mustang can learn in a short time.

So with that busy schedule ahead, I will leave you with a picture of Zeke partying during his turnout, and hopefully NEXT week there will be big updates!
