So I haven't updated in a while. Silly me! :P Henny is doing great. He was wormed for the first time on Friday. He always has a lazy lower lip, so I played with it for a few seconds to desensitize him then stuck the tube in. He did NOT like the taste. He did the lip curl and everything!
He's such a little goof ball.
He tried on his helmet for the first time too. He was so intrigued with the plastic packaging; he had no idea what it is. I love how I can take his halter off anywhere and slip it right back on. The helmet makes him look like a nun. A very displeased nun. He just looked so ridiculously cute and pathetic I couldn't help but laugh my butt off. He also tried on a t-shirt! I got a 2XL(yes, 2XL. Fatty Fatty 2x4) t-shirt with the long arm pits that athletes like to wear. I cut the neck hole bigger, although a tad bit too big. We bunched up the shirt, put it on over his neck, then slipped his legs through one at a time. It was a lot like putting a shirt on a dog. A giant, hoofed dog. He did so amazingly well, and didn't fight me at all! I walked him a few yards in it after I recovered from laughing so hard I almost peed myself. He just tolerates so much. It's amazing. He's learning quickly how to square up and walk and trot in hand. So basically we just have to perfect a couple things and get him all cleaned up and we'll be ready!! How exciting. I am praying we can make it to the show next weekend. Having a non-running truck and a broken down trailer makes things really difficult.
Henny tried on a yearling size fly mask yesterday. I'm sure if I could've seen his eyes, they would have killed me with their death stare.
I brought it out for Bubba because the flies have been making his eyes water. The second I let him go, he took of trotting around the pasture freaking out. But then came back once he heard the mint wrapper LOL. Oh, and a farrier will be coming out tomorrow. Henny's feet grow super fast. It's only been 4 weeks and he's already due for another trim. It must be the supplement I'm feeding him.
