When You Can’t Ride…
You find other things to occupy your time with the horses. After Blue, Nate and Grady’s hock injections on Friday we decided a thorough grooming session was in order to alleviate their boredom. We did manes, tails and some leg trimming to go along with their spring-cleaning. The horses are almost done shedding and are starting to look sleek and shiny again.
I thought this picture of Grady was priceless. As you can see he wasn’t enjoying himself all that much. Grady was probably having flashbacks to when he was a show horse and what it means to be thoroughly groomed. I’m sure he was more than surprised when he was turned out afterwards to join his friends Nate and Blue in the small paddock for some limited grazing time. Of course, he took a roll in the dirt for good measure; just to insure he wasn’t going to a show.
Until next time
