SO over the cold.
Actually, I'm over windy days, lack of sun, the constant cold/warm making for poor footing and not being able to ride much. I really found myself wanting an indoor recently.
Laz and the boys demonstrating on a warmer, muddy day, their zooooomies!
And nap time for all three
Oh, and meet Stella!!!
She's a 17 hand TB ATHLETE who is being leased by E
She's so Pegasus flea bitten strawberry roan drool worthy and they jump BIG jumps-holy mother!
She is being leased by E at a different barn, with an indoor (le sigh!) until they determine if they are compatible (yes already!) and they may come back to our barn (cue the band!) for Spring/Summer and trail rides! They are FANCEEEEEE together! Stella's Mom is searching for the perfect home for her and E just may be it.
Laz got trimmed/re-balanced a week ago
Things are still looking good
"MMMMmmm gimmmes cookiez"
He's not been hoof sore at all this winter which is so great because the ground is rock hard and lumpy
We had a lesson set for today (Wednesday) but due to ground/weather/lack of indoor I had to postpone it. Which=me being grumpy.
WANT TO RIDE
This past Sunday, as I was tacking Laz up for a lone ride, he was telling me politely with tail swishing (which he NEVER does) and then when I seconded guessed it, he TOLD me with leg kicking and back humping--no saddle-no ride-I don't' feel good.
I don't know if he was really full, had a stomach ache, or what was up but he was VERY tummy sensitive. We just walked, and walked and walked (he was goofy, silly and cuddly and also was farting/pooping/peed so I didn't go COLIC-OMG crazy)
He wanted to eat this tree so for his own medicinal reasons, I let him.
I also did some Masterson massage on him (under the tail points) which wouldn't you know, he pooped 35 seconds later.
A great thing if you are a worry colic wart like me.
Mason, Laz and I walked for about 2 hours
In other exciting news, we did a clean trax soak on RH and LF (LF just had some frog clean up so I wanted to zap out any thrushy spots)
Look at my perfect gentleman ground tied!! LOOOOOVE him
After the soak, I treated with Thrush Off and packed it with Keratax Hoof Putty to keep it packed/clean for longer
I booted him and baggied his RH up for our hour walk while it penetrated through
Laz is 10000% a trooper when it comes to this.
Even though our rides have taken a beating by winter, we are still having fun being together
Pudgie wants you to know he likes to eat junk mail that sells pizza coupons
The only good thing about winter is puppy cuddles
GET HERE SOON!!!!!!
