I hope that you find out whatever is bothering your horse, and that it has an easy fix
I used to buy them on those occasions as well, but never got a thing. Sorry that still no gate, lol! On the language theme, trust me, portuguese is wayyy harder than english :)
Aww that is sweet that your grandson wants to spend some time with you! Bet you were really happy about it.
I love those selfies!! :) As I recall you had lots of rain lately, and that does not help with muscle tone, as Diego was not worked properly. You will see that in no time he will be looking great again (I actually think he already is, lol!)
I get your rant. I would be quite upset as well. My farrier did that before as well, sometimes like 2/3 weeks, if BO had more horses to shoe he would come quicker, if only for Tuya he would let go. Thank goodness I can help some now, but I am in no ways an expert and I only used a hoof knife once, let alone nippers.
Good thing is that he knows where all the keys are, just comes, takes the horses and does his job, even if there's no one in there :)
Yesterday at work, boss called me to check something with her, about the same time the trail ride with the tourists would start. I had to let the phone on my desk and go. I came back to a text message sent 30 minutes ago from BO's daughter asking 'how do you say slow down?' - I swear I almost died of anxiety, lol!! I immediately replied and she answered all was good, that they were in the arena when they were speeding up the horses and now were good at a walk. Whew!!!
I called her later and she said all went well and thanked me once again. I was really happy for them :)
Have a nice day everyone!!
