It's 44 degrees and muddy, but the snow is melting. Right now, Beautiful's turn out is a lake--a swamp--a bog--a mess.
She's muddy, as you can see. Some of the mud has dried on to where it's hard to get it off with a curry brush.
My farrier came by today to do Red and Cowboy's feet. He stopped in to say "hi" to Beautiful since she'll be due for a trim the next time he comes around. He told me she looks like "horse" now. I take that as a compliment. I replied that I think she's going to be a very beautiful horse, indeed.
The good thing about having a lake in your turnout is that it does prepare your horse for water crossings. Or at least, I hope so.
Here she's feeling good and came running at me and reared up. I was on the other side of the fence and she was trying to get my attention away from Jasmine the pony.
Another thing of interest. I introduced her to Cowboy today through the fence and she turned her hind to him like she is in heat. Hmmmm...anyone have mares in heat right now? I suppose the change in weather could have triggered her.
Here is my 12 year old dog, Elsa. She's a sweetie. Just relaxing in the little bit of sun we had today.
If I have any favorite bird it is definitely Candian Geese. Today there were maybe 100 of them circling around our house because the neighbor's field has turned into a real pond. I ran to get my camera, but I was too late for the picture. I am, however, going to be ready the next time they come. That is a shot I really, really want.
