Brrr! So I've had Laz's blanket off (actually all the horses are running around naked) and he's fairing quite well. The temps rose up to around 30 so we figured allowing their fur to breathe is always a good thing.
Laz is happy to go sans blanket while he can.
He has his feet done yesterday and I reviewed/asked Cliff my billion questions and he told me his plans of why he does this, etc, etc. We put Laz back on a 5 week trim, instead of stretching it out again. He is still pleased with what he sees. Laz, the past couple of weeks, has been trotting and cantering around better than he ever has. Crazy but I'll take it!
Speaking of crazy..as in crazy cute. Here's Chief. The BO asked for me to check on him while she was gone for a few hours to make sure he didn't escape out of his pen. I guess this little cutie pie, likes to jump fences and scoot under our electric fence.
I checked on the littlest, upon arrival and he was good
"Harrro...Iz realz cuut. Feedz mez"
"mmnom nom, I haz purty hairz an vury thiks furz so snowz dont hurtz me!"
Look at these littlest feet!
After I worked Laz and we had our trim, the BO called me from her house and laughed noticing that Chief snuck out and was running with the Gelding herd. Unfortunately, it wasn't going well. The one Arab was chasing him, biting at him and Chief was screaming! It was heartbreaking!!!!
We raced out and Chief went running right for the BO to be rescued. He is hilarious!
So, we chatted and thought, since he's been sleeping in the stall next to Laz for the past few nights, and they seem to get along over the rails, let's introduce them. If they got along, Chief can stay with Laz and then won't run away again, and Laz has been wanting a herdmate, so how about a 1/4 size?
"Sniff sniff...oh ya..you is the minimini that snores next to me at nights"
"Minimini do you give kisses?"
"Here Minimini, you eats my hays...I likes you"
"can you reach minimini?"
Be still my heart...
