Well, I am glad you guys are having a great time out in the nice weather. I have been stuck either inside, or only doing ground work for the past month. Today, I got Smokey out and after saddling him up, I just lead him around the farm for about an hour, then I had him trotting over some logs while lunging him. He was very sweaty when he was done, so that's good. :) got that good energy out of him.
There is a lady coming out tomorrow to take a look at him as an endurance horse. :) I really hope she takes him. Knowing that he will be used and loved make me happy. :)
Smokey also had a huge tangle in his tail where he had decided to rub his butt against the side of the barn, so after smothering it in conditioner, I was finally able to brush it out and braid it so maybe it will look halfway decent when the lady comes to take a look at him tomorrow.
I don't have any pictures from today, just because it was cold and I didn't want to get my camera outside in the almost 10 degree wind. But, here are some pictures from a couple days ago. :) He is such a pretty boy. P1241308.jpg P1241321.jpg P1241324.jpg
Ignore the toilets in the background, we're really not that redneck, I promise!! (We were cleaning out the hay loft, and for some reason there were some broken up toilets in the back corner. So, yeah...) P1241320.jpg
Oh, and here are the last three baby pygmy goats that I had born last year, waiting to be adopted :) All three are at their new homes. But how cute are they!? VERY! :) January (41).jpg
The two girls got to hang out inside for a few days because it got so cold. Nice and toasty :) P1241333.jpg
I know they are goats and not horses, but I thought you might be able to appreciate the cuteness. :)
