This week, I feel like mom and I have accomplished a lot with our horse's appearances. The other day we decided to grab the clippers and attempt to turn Cowboy into a respectable miniature horse as opposed to a miniature horse version of Tina Turner...which actually looks a *lot* like Cowboy..We decided to just trim up his whiskers, fetlocks and bridepath, plus we thinned his mane a little..Pretty pleased with the outcome.
|Before-sorry for the not so great pic, only recent one we had that showed his mane really well|
When I went out to ride Red bareback the other day, I noticed that his bridepath was getting *really* long and kind of looked like a mohawk, so I went back to the barn today with the clippers so I could trim him up..Of course he was in the back pasture again so I had to walk back there and get him..thankfully when I called he came, then decided to be a stubborn mule at the gate and refused to move :P finally we went through and he followed..brought him back to the barn, brushed him, curried/massaged him, chased after a wasp with fly spray and a bucket-Red never flinched at this yet spooked at the clippers-and finally got down to business. We started with the bridlepath, he was hesitant at first but then decided the clippers made for a nice sound machine and fell asleep on my shoulder
|Had to take a photo of his cuteness.|
|Today after his bridlepath trimming!!|
I'm a sucker for long manes so I'm pretty stinking excited.
I have more pictures to post but they haven't uploaded on Instagram OR gone to my email for me to edit yet..soo..til then. ;)
PS: Doesn't Red look amazing?? :D
