Thank you all -- Encore's helmet cam video from XC is now up on the blog, so you can check it out when you have 5 minutes to waste, he's pretty funny. He apparently feels that any open field is an invitation for him to bear down on the bit and GALLOP. Oh well, that will come in handy making time at Training Level. ;-)
ETA -- had a wonderful visit with Jim, didn't do much, just chilled out, visited the art museum and rested together with his kitty. It was the kind of time I wanted and I just soaked up as much as I could. I'm glad I went and it gave me some small measure of peace, since the last time I saw him ended in tears and no sleep. I didn't want that to be our last experience if it was to be so. Hopefully, though, we will have more chances to spend time together in the future -- he has already achieved some amazing results with a medical trial and a horrible juiced vegetable/fruit diet, so at least there is a positive trend to be clung to!
