|I told mom this angle made him look huge, haha!|
Got shoed in his fronts as usual, feet are looking pretty nice!
While they were working out there with Spirit, I was inside the barn, giving Red an MTG bath. He has a few bald spots from shedding, maybe a bit of sweet itch so I used a lot of MTG. His face was shedding like crazy and it's looking kinda rough. :( I put the fly mask on and used the MTG there too, got it groomed out and etc and he was happy to be fly sprayed and taken care of.
|Went to the gate to say hello to Bay-Bay, of course, Red came along.|
He has a small mark from a hoof, probably from the new horse, but no biggy. They get along so well!
Brought him out shortly after, he fell asleep and did perfect, never moved, even when "A" turned the other horses out and the colt and filly pranced down the driveway. He has happy feet now!
Once the farrier was halfway done with his two fronts, he looked at me and said, "Is he yours?" (Wondering if he was my mom's too) and I said, "Yeah! He's my boy!" so he replied and said, "This is the kind of horse I like!" and seemed happy with how calm he was the whole time! (So was I!) I love getting compliments like that from farriers and vets, knowing that he makes their jobs a bit easier. :)
|"who, me?" (Notice the moustache)|
Once he was done, mom paid and chatted while I put some of the listerine mix on his tail and mane, then curried him off a bit more. So. Much. Hair.
I'm really happy with his weight right now. Much thinner (in a good way considering he was SO. FAT. this winter) and "A" said they've been making laps on the hill and playing now that it's warm, I think he's gained some muscle.
|He's well-aware of his charm.|
He needs to be groomed up something terrible, time to clip his leg hairs, ears, bridle path and muzzle/nose. I LOVE the color he is right now! He's starting to brighten up now instead of being a dull brown.
|Today, mostly off of work for a few weeks!|
I think he looks better! ;)
Going to ride this week, going to start going over every day/every other day to medicate Red now!
