Beautiful's Third Trim
Well, another day, another trim--Beautiful's third in three months. Didn't get the back feet, unfortunately, but she almost gave them. If all he'd done is pick it up and hold it out, he could have got it, but he couldn't get her hoof and leg in between his legs. She just didn't trust him enough. The female farrier will be out in a few weeks--so hopefully, she'll be able to get them then.
My farrier did say that her feet are looking great, and she's going to be just fine. He said there's not much you can do about the bad care she got to start with, you just have to give her good care now. And, he complimented me on gentling her--and said she has come a long way.
The weather here in Spokane has been GREAT--so I'm out on trail rides almost every other day. I'd go every day if I could, but I run out of riding partners willing to ride at the same times I do. The ride I'm including here is up at Palisades Park in Spokane. We rode Rimrock Drive which overlooks the city and Mt. Spokane.
There's hardly ever any horses out there--and I'm SHOCKED!! Back in Lewiston everyone took advantage of the local trails, but here it seems like I never run into other equestrians. What's the DEAL??? Do people ride their horses in Spokane?? Hope I see more horse and riders out there this month!!!
Happy September Trails, Horsey friends!
