Continuing to keep your mom in my thoughts and prayers Denise! Also keeping you in them since you are doing so much driving back and forth to Houston! I miss a lot of things about home in The Woodlands while I am here at school - but traffic isnt one of them! Ive heard from my mom thats its gotten even worse recently.
My horses are fine. Whiskey got some hoof boots to ease his barefoot drama on the rocks until his new shoes come in. I picked up a fly mask for him today while I was grabbing feed, and realized on the drive home that I had grabbed a bright red one! I'm sure thats gonna look just fabulous on my red headed carrot hahaha
Drifter is fine. The cuts around his neck have already started healing up and his leg yesterday was fine. Still giving him a few days off. I am busy with some class stuff and work, and figured the rest wouldnt hurt him. I need to wrap him in bubble wrap. I thought accident prone horses were just something people talked about- and then I bought him! Gosh. He is awful. Sure footed and smart as heck on a trail - but in the pasture- Lord help him.
Using Whiskey tonight in a demonstration of Native American symbols painted on horses for some of the kids I give lessons to. I have a friend taking pictures so I will try to post them. Whiskey's never been painted on so this might get real fun! haha I usually use Drifter but his dark bay color makes it harder to see the paint sometimes. I figure this way I can do my demonstration on Whiskey (chestnut seems to allow colors to show a lot better) and then let the kids paint whatever they want on Drifter. He thinks kids are great. Especially when all he has to do is stand there.
