Well! My baby's birthday was on Wednesday, she is officially six years old. Today she had her feet trimmed, which for a horse who isn't used to having her feet handled a lot, is a big deal, LOL. But first, isn't **this** the life?
Ravyn is showing her best side on the left, LOL, Gallant is sprawled out in the center, and Pepsi the quarter horse is visible on the right.
Because it's been so muddy, Sarah and Nathan decided to try and get Ravyn's feet cleaned off before starting the trimming. Needless to say she wasn't too pleased with that either, heh, and in the end Nathan ended up using a scrubbrush dunked in a bucket of water on her feet in lieu of the hose.
And when it came to the trimming, there was a lot of dancing about on three legs, yeesh, but with repetition she'll get used to it. Here she is supervising:
And here she stood still long enough for me to get a decent photo!
After she was done, Sarah put her back in the field. i didn't get a good photo of Gallant, the other PMU percheron baby (well, 6-year-old baby) but i will next time. Ravyn barely tops 15 hands, and Gallant has passed 18 hands, i swear he is a MOOSE. But in this photo you can't tell that, in fact you can barely tell there's a horse under all that forelock, LOL.
Since my horse allergy is acting up, i'll need to ease back into the routine of going to the farm, but it's definitely worth it :-)
i've gone without "horse therapy" for waaaaaay too long!
Such a shame to have that allergy when you have such a beautiful horse in your life!
Being outside helps a lot, my allergies get much worse when i'm in an enclosed area. But i did build up a tolerance when i was riding once a week, so i know i can do it :-)
Awwwww! Happy birthday, Ravyn!
