So I splurged.
|And it's cute and huge and teal and bright and pretty.|
|And Eeyore looks pretty snazzy with it on. But he makes everything look good, so.|
I wanted to get a conformation picture, but this was the best I could do...
Sorry if the picture is really large....I had to take it with the phone sideways. Lol!!! Doesn't he look great?? Let's do a quick comparison, shall we?
|May 3rd, 2013. Once again, I apologize if the picture is huge. Keep in mind he is still VERY wooly here as it was still cold. He's lost all of that fuzzyness now and is slick.|
Looks better, am I right??
We went out to the barn to drop some stuff off and chill out. I got Red out to groom him while step-daddy, mom, little bro and John, the owner of the barn, sat and talked. Red and I listened to some music and I broke down and used a little fly spray on him.
I couldn't help it.
Old followers will know that Red has a minor allergic to fly spray, minor as in it doesn't hurt him, but some of his hair falls off, then he recovers in about a week if you don't use any more and use it very little. I haven't used it nor had to and I was planning on getting a natural spray to use, but haven't had a chance to ask my vet about it. He's been fine until tonight, and his legs were covered with the pesky bugs and I couldn't stand it, so I sprayed a TINY amount of Zonk It! on his legs and they finally went away, mostly at least. I was at the point of not caring how his legs look, I'm NOT going to let my horse be tortured by bugs just because I'm too paranoid about a bald spot. Going to get garlic powder and Apple Cider Vinegar to put in his food tomorrow which helps prevent flies and will be making a natural spray. Wish me luck.
PS: if you have a "recipe" for a spray, tell meeeee!! I NEED the ideas. And Red would like them too.
|What kind of horse girl would I be if I didn't sneak in some pictures of us???|
|Mom took this one, way better. Plus we match!!! Hahahaha!|
He stood still like a champ during the grooming. I got his mane/forelock and tail all brushed out and smoothed. His mane is so long now!!! Yay!! He wasn't dirty at all, just a little sweaty with some mud spots on him, so I only spent a few minutes on the brushing and spent the rest of the time hugging on him. :)
Going to post some more tomorrow, exciting stuff going on that I REALLY want to post about but I can't yet!!! Hopefully I'll get the go-ahead tomorrow. If I get it before then, even if it's 2 AM, I'll post! Rofl!
