    I have an 18 year old pregnant shetland mare that I rescued last year. She was very wild/ferral and it has taken a very long time, lots of patience and hard work to even be able to groom her. She now lets you groom her and doesn't mind being in small spaces with me... until 4 days ago. Shes...

  8. Horse Grooming
    Oh my goodness. I walked out to the pasture after being absent from the barn for a week (vacation) and saw what my eyes couldn't believe. My Shetland pony mare who has a gorgeous past her shoulder length, thick mane, had gotten into burrs. And I mean BURRS. They always get them in the fall...
