Hi everyone!!!!! Trying to read all the posts I miss, WOW, there are so many.
So, the heat was turned back on here in Maine,*sigh*. Hot and MUggy here today. My horses were hot and grumpy. Farrier was here, he was hot and sweaty and tired. One horse didnt want his feet done so he was miserable the whole time, reared and lashed out, I couldnt get out of the way fast enough and caught me in the mouth with a front hoof, split me but left my TEETH intact, thank god. My farreir grabbed the line and his lunge whip while I went to clean up and lunged him with gusto , hoping to show him he cant act like that, he was sweating and huffing when I came back but MUCH MUCH calmer. I remember someone saying their farrier hit their horse and kicked their horse for acting up, and as I was bleeding and heading for the house I tohught of this person and was so glad my farrier didnt do that . He was excellent. Rearing is not sometihng that is typical of this horse so he went over his foot again to make sure something wasnt wrong. He looked fine, he was just being grumpy. My other horse was fine and she stood like a champ.
Loved the picture of the backwards girl on the horse,,,looks like shes napping!!! LOL.
I guess I need to read some more to get up to date on the happenings here, Im a little confused,,,,,ok, happy trails,,,,,im off for some reading.
