*Le Sigh* This horse...what would I do without her??
After being out of town for close to a month, we are back to work. I had a great time with the other half on our trips to Ohio and Maine but I am happy to be home and back on a horse.
Dinner with my Heart on Moosehead Lake.
Standing in Moosehead Lake.
Before we headed out I did get a couple more rides in on Mochi with the Pelham. She continued to improve so we are just going to see where this goes.
Ha, we took them for a walk. There's a Mochi pony in there somewhere! Excuse Klein's filth. We have to practice for some nice pictures once it cools off a little around here.
Everyone got bathed and had their pedicure yesterday.
Mochi is always the model citizen for her feet, here she is falling asleep.
Wes just hanging out getting his feet done. My next post will be pics of how much improvement his feet are making. They are AMAZING!
He has been home almost six months already. Some days it still doesn't seem real that he is home.
These showed up in the mail while we were gone. They are a BEAST!!!! They are PERFECT for full drafts! My Oster A5 turbo clippers were no match for Wes' coat. These things go through it like it's not even there. I am SO happy with them! I would highly recommend them. They are expensive at almost $300 but they are worth it and you will definitely get your money's worth from them.
The Other Half clipped Wes yesterday and he clipped a heart into him for me :) He also brought me food to the barn yesterday because he knows I completely forget about food when I am with horses, which is a TERRIBLE habit. He is that awesome.
My handsome grazing in the sunrise this morning. This picture makes me so happy. He SO deserves this retirement life.
I got Klein baby out for some flat work today. I wouldn't expect anything different. No matter how long I am gone we always pick up where we left off like I never left. Even after a four month deployment when she was four years old and I had started her only three months before I deployed. I don't quite understand people that post things like "Oh Buttercup was just PERFECT today after eight days off!" If your horse forgets that it's a domesticated riding horse over the course of a week/month off than you might need to re-evaluate some things. Or maybe it's just that big of a shithead normally that you would expect it to throw a fit about having to work after a break? I don't know, but I have never owned a horse like that.
Her majesty working today, cantering ground rails on a 20m circle.
Had a short gallop just to get her stretched out. Klein and I have over seven years together now and she still puts me on Cloud 9.
