Newman's first law: It is useless to put on your brakes when you're upside down.

Desert Gold Py

...so after a bit of racing, Py need some time off. In July of 2019 we've made progress on getting past his intermittent lameness issues and will begin some methodical rebuilding while trying to shed the extra pounds that he's accumulated while being pasture bound.

 

Thankfully it seems that rest and a minor bit of intervention will get us back on the trail, but it does make me hesitant to bring speed back into the equation in the future.
