Barefoot and Pregnant...longing *pics*

So I have been doing lots of ground work and whatnot to entertain myself and the horses. I'm 9 months so riding is out of the question, but my hubby took pics of me last Sunday. Ignore my improper attire--boots just aren't comfortable and I have mellow horses so tennis shoes it is for now. Besides, it's been too hot for pants! LOL This is my "one eyed" paint that doesn't seem to mind being blind in one eye. I just use voice commands more on his right side.Just wanted to show off my pretty boy behaving nicely in spite of no real work for him to do for a while.

You couldn't tell he was one eyed from a distance he looks so healthy. How old is he, and how did he lose the eye?

He's seven now. Lost his eye when he was two..well, not LOST, but he was out in a heavily wooded pasture, came in to the barn to eat and was squinting and had a pinkish teary eye. Called the vet, and he'd poked it just deep enough to rupture the cornea and the fluid inside came out. Never once got infected, but couldn't save his sight. Still has the eyeball, it's funky looking and I think he can see a diff. in light/shadow as he responds to movement on that side, but could be he feels puffs of air? Not sure. But he adapted rather quickly. Just turns his head all the way around to get a good look at things and trusts me completely when riding. Somehow knows when to step up or down off things. He can jump (low obstacles) and gets along fine in a herd situation. In fact, he can be a bully. Here's a pic of it. I try to keep a fly mask on it in the summer or on windy days when there's lots of dust.

What a pretty boy, love the coloring! Sorry about his eye,
but it doesn't make him any less beautiful and stop him from
being a good horse!

Congrats on being 9 months! Gonna pop soon!

It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!

Wow, pretty horse! Looks nice.
Aw I'm sorry about his eye- but it sure looks like he's coping well without one! & congrats on the pregnancy!

Ride more, worry less.

Toby is my western trail horse, but I always thought he looked nicer with English tack..he's more TB than anything else. He has a nice extended trot and such...I'm just not much of an accomplished English rider, so he's stuck with my trail riding now. LOL

I'm having a girl...hopefully VERY soon. LOL She's due tomorrow (sunday)..and I'm having "twinges" . I'll put a pic up of her after she's here, for sure!

Thanks for the compliments-I'll pass them on to Toby-he luffs to be told he's pretty!
