A problem getting meshes and lists to render properly.

In my program, I'm rendering two skinned meshes and a triangle list that represents a grid of squares. When I had only one mesh I had no problems. However when I added the second mesh, the square grid triangle list won't render at all. There's no way the new mesh is obscuring the grid, as the grid is much larger. I can't figure out any clues as to why this is happening. Here's the rendering code, which is inbetween a BeginScene and EndScene.
		IDirect3DDevice9 *device = g_VideoSystem->GetDevice();
ID3DXEffect* fx = g_VideoSystem->GetEffect();

D3DXVECTOR3 w = D3DXVECTOR3( 24.0f, 0.0f, -12.0f );
D3DVIEWPORT9 viewport;
g_VideoSystem->GetDevice()->GetViewport( &viewport );

D3DXVec3Project( &w, &w, &viewport, g_VideoSystem->GetProj(), g_VideoSystem->GetView(), g_VideoSystem->GetWorld() );

D3DXMATRIX local,toWorld,viewProj;
D3DXMATRIX worldInvTrans;
viewProj = g_VideoSystem->GetViewProj();

// Let Direct3D know the vertex buffer, index buffer and vertex
// declaration we are using.
HR(device->SetVertexDeclaration(VertexPNT::Decl));
HR(device->SetStreamSource(0, m_GridVB, 0, sizeof(VertexPNT)));
HR(device->SetIndices(m_GridIB));

// Draw the Grid
HR(fx->SetTexture(mh_Tex, m_GridTex));
HR(fx->Begin(0, 0)); HR(fx->BeginPass(0));

HR(device->DrawIndexedPrimitive(D3DPT_TRIANGLELIST, 0, 0, 42, 0, 60));

HR(fx->EndPass()); HR( fx->End() );

//Draw the player
local	=	m_Muncher->GetLocal();
toWorld =	m_Muncher->GetToWorld();
HR(fx->SetMatrixArray(mh_FinalXForms, m_Muncher->getFinalXFormArray(), m_Muncher->numBones()));
HR(fx->SetMatrix(g_VideoSystem->GetWVP(), &( local*toWorld*viewProj ) ));
D3DXMatrixInverse(&worldInvTrans, 0, &toWorld);
D3DXMatrixTranspose(&worldInvTrans, &worldInvTrans);
HR(fx->SetMatrix(mh_WorldInvTrans, &worldInvTrans));
HR(fx->SetMatrix(mh_World, &toWorld));
HR(fx->SetTexture(mh_Tex, m_MuncherTex));
HR(fx->Begin(0, 0)); HR(fx->BeginPass(0));
m_Muncher->draw();
HR(fx->EndPass()); HR(fx->End());

//Draw the Reggie
local	=	m_Reggie->GetLocal();
toWorld =	m_Reggie->GetToWorld();

HR(fx->SetMatrixArray(mh_FinalXForms, m_Reggie->getFinalXFormArray(), m_Reggie->numBones()));
HR(fx->SetMatrix(g_VideoSystem->GetWVP(), &( local*toWorld*viewProj ) ));
D3DXMatrixInverse(&worldInvTrans, 0, &toWorld);
D3DXMatrixTranspose(&worldInvTrans, &worldInvTrans);
HR(fx->SetMatrix(mh_WorldInvTrans, &worldInvTrans));
HR(fx->SetMatrix(mh_World, &toWorld));
HR(fx->SetTexture(mh_Tex, m_ReggieTex));
HR(fx->Begin(0, 0)); HR(fx->BeginPass(0));
m_Reggie->draw();
HR(fx->EndPass()); HR(fx->End());

I've figured out where the triangle grid went, but I can't figure out how to get it back. The grid is attached to the root bone of the Reggie model, and moves along with it. Keeping it from being attached seems like a fairly simple operation, but I have no idea how to do it. The code from above should still be accurate.

Here's an image of the problem:
