Well. I went and did it. I adopted a wild Mustang. Here she is.
Just kidding! Anyway, this is just Paint Girl's mare, Fritzy. Know something kind of funny? Fifteen minutes before I took these pictures, she had been, groomed, longed, and totally clean. The minute she was back in her pasture, she dirtied herself up.
We planned to do our first trail ride of the season on Sunday, so on Saturday, Paint Girl and I decided to longe the "kinks" out of the horses. Fritzy was the only one that really needed it, since she hadn't been worked much all winter.
The neighbors were riding their horses in their pasture, which is separated by a line of trees behind the arena. Our horses spotted them and went on high alert. Paint Girl was longing Fritzy, who flagged her tail and got all prancy.
My Boy got all studly and raised his neck and head high.
My Boy and I hung out and nibbled on arena weeds while we waited for Fritzy to be done. Er, at least he nibbled on arena weeds, I ate a protein bar.
Wait, I'm not next, am I?
Then my spotted stinker got worked, too. His newly shod tender hooves are back to normal. I still think his toes are a bit short.
Bad news, that blasted sarcoid has scabbed up again! Which means it was oozing from the Xxterra we put on it last weekend. I'm starting to get frustrated. I applied Xxterra again on top of the scab this weekend. I'm going to call and consult with the vet this week.
Oh, and these dandelions from my photography blog? I think they're gone now. There has been some large, red spotted animal on the loose, devouring weeds.
To be continued.....
