This morning Finian seemed a bit bothered by life and was in quite a bad mood, which for mister congeniality, means something is wrong.  I had a little jump school out in the field and he was jumping fine, but with none of his usual brilliance.  Dougie Hannum (Equine Physio-therapist) came out to the farm later in the afternoon and worked on him.  Immediately Finn became more pleasant and back to his curious, goofy self.  I think all the traveling stress had finally caught up with him and he was extremely tight.  Last night Weslee arrived from Texas with her horse, Oliver, and Kristi Nunnink came in from California with her mare, Rosie.  Both seem to have traveled well and were happy to be on solid ground.
