There's not really much going on around here horse wise. I've basically been busy decorating for Christmas and shopping and haven't had any time to squeeze a ride in. Maybe tomorrow...
The horses were wormed recently. Poor Grady, my heart goes out to this sweet guy. He's still not comfortable when anyone stands in front of him and puts a hand on top of his nose. He didn't shoot back into the corner of the stall this time, so there is some progress in the trust department. I felt so bad for him as he stood there trembling and shaking all over his eyes wide. He was terrified. I have no idea what someone did to him in the past. I'll wager he didn't have good experiences with people who worked with him. He's such a sweet horse too, it's a shame someone felt the need to traumatize him. Most likely, because he's so big and they were the ones who couldn't handle his size not him.
Recently, I was surprised when I won a contest at:
A Thousand Pounds of Fragile Horse Jan and her lovely horse Buckshot are a wonderful team. Stop by and check out how she and Buckshot are progressing each week.
Jan sent along a bag of yummy horse treats for the herd. They devoured them in record time! A great brush that will come in handy considering what a filthy bunch they are. For me there was a starry Christmassy mug complete with hot chocolate. A perfect assortment of hand lotions for my wintery crocodile skin.
Thank you again Jan and Buckshot. I'm enjoying all of my prizes. It really is so nice this time of year to be able to open a gift that makes me feel special.
Until next time
