Well its a no go for the little girl with the horse. Her dad says no, even though she is really not all that "little" she is turning 18 soon. Funny how age has us classify things... I think I have decided on a name in the mean time though...
I picked it because of its meaning... She is quite the rascal these days now that she is feeling better. She has got loose, ran around the farm, visited the cows, visited all the other horses, made me chase her for almost an hour, and then went to her stall
Go Figure... She does NOT like to have a saddle put on what so ever. Good greif, you would think that it was murder, so I thought maybe she was uncomfortable or sore, or maybe it did not fit "right" ( I must admit I dont believe in this typically ) so the vet was out and was roping and I tried to saddle her infront of him so he could see what i mean. He doesn't think she is "sore" per say. He said we may have to scope her to find out if she has ulcers.
But Loki is doing well, peppy otherwise and feeling her "oats" so to speak, she is definately hopped up on the grain we have been putting to her. A few minutes outside and she has worked her self into a sweat. We do have her on a higher % feed than I would typically do for a horse her age but I want to put the weight to her so we are in addition to the Rice Bran Oil.
Hope everyone is well and coping with the weather the best they can!!
