Thought I would post some updated pics of my cutie pie, Flicka. She has come a long ways in the short time I've had her; She no longer runs away from me, is fantastic on the ground, is learning how to bow and put her front feet on a step, is able to be ridden, and is absolutely spoiled, haha.
Looking absolutely bored...grooming was a 'scarey' event for her before, now she just falls asleep, and tries to drool on my back when I handle her front feet...Lol!
After 20 odd year's I've never blanketed, or had a sheet on for more than a few hours at a time, but Ms. Flicka hates when the wind pelts her with sand (and other flying particles!), and walks around with her ears back, eyes squinted, and tail tucked...she looks pathetic; so one windy day I threw a water proof sheet on her, and she practically shoved her head into her face mask...Lol! She seemed much happier once her gear was on!
