    Talking From Yak...to Sporthorse in minutes!

    So I have had a emotional rough couple of week's and it's just been getting worse everyday...well today was my breaking point and I made a change in my work and really made some plans to act on next week.

    Iv been coming out to see Ollie and just get away from the stress and heartbreak of loosing family memebers
    He always puts a smile on my face!

    So as a thank you to him today, I groomed him for a solid hour, maybe mote, really worked my currycomb into his neck, shoulder and hind end, gave hom a facial rub down, de tangled his tail, trimmed up his winter whiskers and fuzzy fetlocks, a few carrots later and all the dirt, stuff, hair and dried mud was all over me

    He went from being so scruffy and mammoth like...or maybe yak like?
    To being shine, well groomed and just handsome!
    I was proud of my handy work, stepped back and could tell he was a very happy little horse

    Here are some of the pictures I got and really want to share

    Before...
    Just a few weeks ago we resembled a yak like creature lol
    Shedding like no tomorrow I thought would never end!



    At his hairiest, even after being semi clipped!



    Today after our major groom festival and cuddles...





    "dis button mom, press rights here together the picture...right here, see!"



    "I'm in the picture right?! You got me?! I want to make sure you can tell I'm in the picture!"


    "wait, time to go back to my paddock?...wait, why? I'm good with this grass!"


    That's all folks, hope you enjoyed the show!!

    He looks beautiful. And that's a very nice horse under all that hair. What a pretty face and expression!

    Im sure he enjoyed the good grooming session! And he's a super handsome man indeed :)

    I hope whatever is going on in your life sorts itself out as well, I know living under constant stress can really take a tole on the body and mind. Its amazing how much our animals can help us through our darkest and toughest times. Guardian angels without wings

    ... This might be a stupid newbie question...

    Why is he two colors in that one picture, but just the darker color in the rest?

    Also, gorgeous horse :)

    He was partially clipped, so the hair color is different.

    He looks great! Mine are still in the shedding process....I have zero motivation to get my butt out there and speed up the process
