Bath time!! Standing there like an old pro! You'd never know that last year just getting near him with a hose was a battle. And forget about getting him on the wash rack. Wasn't going to happen.


I know his halter is too far down on his nose. He sat back on his lead when he saw the soap running across the cement and stretched the halter a little.

Washing the evil tail...soooooooo thick and coarse and apparently VERY water resistant! And we got photo bombed by CJ (my friend's arab gelding)!!


So CLEAN!


Look how WHITE he is!

So handsome!

Tried to capture the almost silvery sheen his white took on as it dried, but failed.

Thanks! The trainer commented on how blindingly white he was today...even after he'd been turned out for five hours and had undoubtedly rolled SEVERAL times. Lol I just love how soft he is. Next time he gets a bath, we're working on his mane and trimming it up. Didn't realize how scraggly and yuck it was until he was all clean everywhere else. Lol

Thanks! His full name is Buenos Aires because his blaze in the shape of South America. We call him Aires (pronounced "Aries," like the Greek god of war), though.

Rode in the arena today. Someone was being incredibly testy and just a general pill. Wanted to go for a real ride, but kind of glad we couldn't (my friend's gelding threw a shoe day before yesterday, so they couldn't have gone anyway) because he was being so obnoxious.

Without further ado, here's us!


Kind of weaving the poles lol





Little monster was fighting me so hard right here when I asked him to stop


Trying to get him to turn to the right...he was fine turning left, but right was a whole different story!

"I don't wanna...you can't make me!"




Trotting!

My fat butt lol
