Mud...Ew.

Well, Dobe and I spent the day slogging through the mud and muck at the feedlot. On average, the soup in the pens was about knee-deep on him and extremely slippery. He nearly went down with me quite a few times. Thankfully, he's my trusty old man that is strong enough to recover from situations that often look and feel completely unrecoverable.

We got home and I decided to get a pic of his nasty self all covered in mud and poop...we both were but he couldn't very well take a picture of me LOL.

Oh, the joys of a white horse . He wasn't very happy when I rinsed him off in the cold but it had to be done. Had to re-wash my saddle too.

No real point to this thread other than to just talk, I suppose.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I like the last shot best- the contrast between his girth area and the rest of him is like a neon light.

Looks like he earned his dinner today for sure.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Thats why I hope to never own a white horse.

I also like the last photo he has such a clean strip! Lol. Sure looks like you guys went swimming in mud.


Want to know the story? From The Start? It is a work in progress.
The $25 horse I didn't want.

LOL, I really liked that last picture too. I didn't really realize exactly how muddy he was until I looked at him without the saddle.

MH, he certainly did. Considering it's been about a month since he's even had a saddle on, he worked pretty darn hard today.

Aw, Dobe. The most manly horse I have ever seen. :)

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

LOL, Wallaby, I'll let him know you said that. Not sure he'll be able to walk through the barn door if his head gets any bigger though.

I love the facial expression in the first picture! Its just so "What the crap was that about today?" and "Please, please don't show anyone this."
And then by the last picture he has just given up hope that you wont show him off in his not-so-prime state.
