    Kaja almost looks like a horse..

    At this point, Kaja is down to what a normal horse would consider a winter coat. Part of me thinks this is just her summer coat and that she doesn't know what a sleek summer coat is. I have taken at least two medium sized dogs out of her 12.3hh, 550lb self. I have no idea where it is coming from. Abby is literally twice her size and I've taken half the hair out of her. I cut off her beard too. Turns out she has a cute little head.

    But you can see in the new photos that 1) she is starting to look horse shaped, not a pompom on legs and 2) that she's still skinny, though she looks a helluva lot better than she did 5 months ago. I upped her feed and the warmer weather should help now that she doesn't have to work to stay warm.

    Kaja also got a new halter she needs to show off. I decided she's getting light blue/turquoise. She looked good in her hand-me-down halter that doesn't fit Abby's giant head, but purple is Abby's color and I have 3 of the same halter (2 mediums, 1 large) and cannot keep them straight. I find it easier to go "This is purple, it belongs to Abby. This is blue, it belongs to Kaja."

    After first long brushing session:


    She looks weirdly proportioned, but I promise she isn't that funny looking.


    She turns and just stares at me when she feels I've brushed her butt too much.


    Yep. Tried to eat my leather glove. She is extremely mouthy and tries to eat anything she can get ahold of. I had to yank this out of her mouth as she was trying to chew it. Sigh.


    Second brushing. The first pile was this big also. The broom is for size reference.


    Being brushed is hard work and works for silly poneh pictures.






    She knows she's adorable with her afro forelock and shiny new halter.




    Trimmed beard! No idea what Abby's up to in the background that is making her look like the world's most downhill horse..

    Some horses just grow a thicker winter coat than others. Dobe is that same way. I spent about an hour brushing him out the other day and I got enough hair to make full coats for about 3 large dogs LOL.

    Have you ever seen someone clip a fjord's winter coat? The density is AMAZING. People always feel bad when one of our fjords has icicles hanging off him while all the others have blankies on them. I'd be willing to bet he's the hottest horse on the whole property!

    Most Fjords have extremely dense coats. Everyone that's touched her has been surprised at just how thick her hair is. How it is now feels like a golden retriever's winter coat.

    SlideStop, if I had a heavy blanket for her and some clippers, I would have been tempted to clip her when I got her to get a picture of how skinny she was. The thickness of her fluff made her look thin, but decent, which was way above what she actually was.

    We live in Arizona. Aires is convinced that we live in Antarctica. Seriously. People always comment on his ridiculous coat and others ask why I don't blanket him. I don't know. He has a 4" outer coat and a double undercoat. He stands in the rain and snow, even though he had a shelter. If I blanketed him, he'd die of heat exhaustion! Lol

    LOVE the turquoise on Kaja!

    Every time I see photos of Kaja (which is the bestest name ever by the way... you're naming my next horse) I hear myself squealing "FEEEEEEJERRRRDDDD!" in my head.

    I may be insane.

    Anyways - turquoise is definitely her colour.. she's freaking adorable.

    Lmao. I do that too, Allie. But do you know how many websites of Norwegian names I had to go through to find Kaja? Nearly all were just Inga, Ingrid, Olga, etc. Nuuu! And I live in a heavily Scandinavian part if the country so a more Swedish name like Maren or Annaka would be a pain because I know too many actual Marens and Annakas. Plus a lot of people say it the way it's spelled which I don't blame them for, but it sound funny.
