A Day in Dusty World

The best grass is always right out your front door according to Dusty.

Dusty had corrective shoes put on her hind feet this week.  We're hoping this will make her more comfortable and perhaps help with healing her suspensory injuries.  Below are assorted pictures of Dusty meandering around the barn. All stall guards except hers were put across the stalls so she couldn't trash the other horse’s stalls while they were out.  We strung a lunge line across the driveway past her paddock entrance so she still had access in there if she wanted it. She didn’t.  Not every horse on the farm has "special privileges"; only our trusted  and safety conscious veterans are allowed to roam for a time under supervision. 
Dusty & Donnie visiting while Sami looks on (Donnie loves her).
But unfortunately for Donnie, Nate's her main man.
Dusty helping get dinner ready. She's such a help she even taste tested some feed before putting it in the feed buckets.
Dinner is ready and Dusty has a ringside seat for the evening's entertainment.


Sami 14.2 vs. Grady 18 hands

This has been going on almost every night once they come into the catch pen before dinner.
Sami is now going to be Dusty's constant companion in her small paddock until he can control himself and learn some manners. Grady's no innocent either and starts the ruckus half of the time.
All tucked in and ready for dinner - My favorite time of day

Until next time

Quote for Today 
Like human beings, horses are all individuals with singular personalities, their own virtues and their own faults. We become bound to them for their beauty, their eccentricities, their heart and the love they so often return to us.
