At my boarding farm, the BO's have a huge garden that was extended from last year. Last year, we had so many fresh, delicious veggies, that I hardly went grocery shopping. For a Vegan, it's a pure delight.
This year, we are making it double the size and will soon be planting.
The BO's already put in strawberry plants and look at these cuties! I think I've only had fresh picked strawberries once as a child....I'm so looking forward to the crop of delights!
We've had a lot of rain here in Michigan, so of course Laz takes full advantage of a mud spa
The BO and I worked on walking him in the front yard again and on the dirt road. He did sooo much better than on Thursday. He only had a couple of mild spooks and I shouted "Cut that off" yes, "Cut that off"...lol! It's what came out...so whatever. The BO said it doesn't matter what, it's all in the tone and I think the tone was right, and for me to continue walking him and putting his mind back to work. After being in the front for about 15 minutes, I walked him myself in the large arena and he did great. No spooking at all and he really seems to enjoy his work.
Cliff comes on Friday and I can't wait for that. His bad hoof just seems wobbly to me. Not in the connection, but in the way that when he walks...it looks like he bobbles like it's disconnected. We'll see what Cliff says.
After working him, I took Laz in his paddock and worked on ground tying while I groomed.
I had to capture his muscle tone in his shoulders. I love a summer metallic coat and he looks pretty darn good lately!
His right side of his neck has this cool section that is a dark black brown, where his mane used to lay
Mason took the opportunity to roll in a mud puddle within four seconds of getting to the farm. He is a water dog through and through
His little reward after our 'lesson'
Oh the rain is coming back-thankfully I timed it right (by chance) and didn't get poured on
I like how his mane looks roached here- I think it looks very masculine and noble
I left him with his dinner and he chose to eat the pile closet to his 'girlfriend', Jessie.
Who knew he liked a pretty blonde, with tousled hair and an alpha attitude ;)
Regal Mason turns 7 years old today
Can't believe that he was once this brown little pig of a puppy-
Happy Birthday Mason!
Above is a video of BO "C" walking him, so you can see how he's moving.
