After removing Taktur from his ladies yesterday and putting him back with the boys, it was time to get back to work. He wasn’t too happy to leave the marital home, but work is work and he will just have to deal with it (the wives do not miss him).
After having new shoes put on, it was time to test them out with a quick ride.
It may have been a while, but Taktur took it all in his stride and was stunning as usual.
He needs a lot of work to bring him back into fitness but this is a very good starting point.
Daisy and Taktur need to establish a relationship and this is extremely important if they want to succeed as a pair in future competitions.
Luckily, he remembers all gaits and work will be a welcome distraction from fawning over non-responsive mares (whether they are real or in his head is another kettle of fish).
So, it will be back to the daily grind of building up muscles, but at least there is a bucket of food at the end so life is not all bad.
Taktur, I’m afraid the only lady in your life now will be your rider.
