Yes - lovely Dinio has started to gain more weight. My darling mother joined me today and she notices such things when she doesn't see him everyday, as I do.Very happy we went to the indoor arena and today we was completely alone. So I asked my mother if she wanted to ride for a while. Oh yes - she answered and mounted. I am very proud of her, 76 years old and still an excellent rider. She walked, trotted and cantered. Then I rode him for about 20 minutes, a little collection in trot, shoulder in and half passes in trot. Dinio was excellent in his trot today.

After our session we washed off the yellow spottes that appears after every night. Took some soap and the yellow spottes were history, at least for today. Dinio got his lucern with some oil and some carrots. Yammie!

Today Dinio was very alert. Noticed that directly when I came to the stable. After the daily brush we went to the indoor arena. At the beginning of our session today he felt a little off, but then again there where several horses in the arena and an ongoing session. It was difficult to ride on long lines. But soon there where fewer horses and I started to really ride him. Suddenly he "woke up" and laid in "a new gear". Wow I thought, where did this come from. EVERYTHING worked today. I have never felt this before with Dinio. Suddenly there where so much energy, power and still so much abedience towards me.  I'm just saying - WOW!! What a feeling!!

Today I also introduced lucern in his diet. Starting with 3 dl per day and I will increase it up to 0,5 kg per day. Hoping he will gain more weight with this complement.

Arrived 17.15 and immediately checked his hoofs and legs. A little little warm in his front hoofs but otherwise everything was OK. Decided to give him an easy session and went to the indoor arena. He felt alert and happy. Started to walk for about 15 minutes and then began to trot. I was very excited to found out wether he would hit his front shoes or not. He didn't!!! I could work him in a long low form and I felt that he had waited for this. He felt lovely. Worked with transitions, walk pirouttes and collected and extended walk. A little trouble with the walk pirouttes to the right but otherwise everything was excellent.

I also got the test results from the laboratory today. Dinio hasn't got any worms at all. No eggs found in the test. Tomorrow I have to buy more Fibergii and perhaps I will buy lucern as well.

Today I took a day off from work so I could meet my ferrier, who should attend Dinio's hoofs today. Everything was alright with them. Dinio got new shoes on his back hoofs. I should continue with the tar on his frogs, but they were much better. We also found some old bleedings in his right front hoof, on the outside, so something must have happened to him. But I shouldn't worry. Before the ferrier arrived I gave Dinio a session at the indoor arena. He was lovely and today it went better to catch the right canter. I could even work him a lot in the walk, without missunderstandings. NICE!! I also managed to collect some fresh menure for the worm test. So tomorrow or on Wednesday I know if he has any worms.

Dinio - you are the best and you make me so proud!!
