Yay, rain! Whose smart horse is under the shed during the storm, and lighting, except for his obviously lightning proof head?
"What dos brite ziggy zaggy lites in da skys?!"
So..I brought in the head drenched pony to groom and just give loves on...
When I noticed! NO HOOF CAST!? grrrr
The rain/mud maybe yanked it off?
So..it lasted two weeks :(
So..it lasted two weeks :(
The good thing is I *think* I see a slight improvement.
SLIGHT I said.
Still seemingly unbalanced but that takes time with setting him up with proper comfortable movement (I hope!)
I ended up booting him Friday night-grrr
Booting makes me crazy. It's a good padding/protector but I HATE leaving them on.
They always keep his foot too wet and it's just not the environment I want for his thrushy foot.
I fill the boot with powder No Thrush but STILL-stank o rama come day #2
Mason's rain delay face
Sunday, our friend's three ADORABLE children wanted to come meet Laz
Laz, of course, was THE PERFECT gentleman toting all three kids and their Mom on safe pony rides
He was especially obsessed with this littlest sweetheart
Nuzzled her and poured his muzzle into her hair CONSTANTLY
You see, the stalker!?
Laz would NOT leave her alone!
Maybe her shampoo was apple flavored?
My adorbs Husband and the kids who he knows quite well, as he runs youth Basketball camps through the year which they all attend.
The later on Sunday, E a fellow boarder a top Laz's bff, Justin and I went for a RIDE!
I called my trimmer and he said RIDE, just boot him if needed and get him moving.
Don't we look like a carriage team below?
Heading to the neighbor's trail... trespassing!
I mean, I just 'feel' when you have trails this nicely groomed, and no "No Trespassing signs" that's on you if you don't want people enjoying them.
It was cute to be able to ride with Laz's bff, Justin
Thanks to E's boyfriend for taking fun photos!
We trading leading spots and both the boys did very well.
Heading back home, the trail is tiny, so it only takes about 15 minutes to ride the whole 'system' lol
We just enjoyed the down time in the saddle
Lots of gabbing...
and grass munching
E wanted to stretch Justin's legs a bit, and was super polite about making sure Laz and I were comfortable with them trotting/cantering in the field beside us.
I wasn't 100% sure how Laz would be...
would he freak?
Would he want to run and race?!
Would he buck me off????
This is how he was.
lol crazeeeee ottb
Such a good boy.
He just watched his buddy move around like a fancy dressage horse
He is FANCY
And for more cute animal spam?!
My sister and her husband's new baby.
They adopted him from a South African local shelter
They think he's Pit/Terrier/Bull Mastiff/???
100% adorable at about 10ish weeks
Hoof cast attempt #2 coming up tomorrow...
