The horses all got trimmed today. I Went out a few hours before the farrier was due to stop so that I could put halters on the two red horses. Last time out farrier was out, we had to skip Pistol because he wouldn't let us catch him. It is super embarrassing when your best trained horse is an absolute ass infront of someone. When you have him on a halter and when you are riding him, he is amazing....but you have to catch him. That is the tricky part. He was so good last summer, so I thinking it might be his teeth again. If he wasn't such an awesome ride, we probably would get rid of him.
Pistol was perfect for the farrier. He always is. Duke, danced around a little bit, he always does. But his feet were the best of the bunch. George was up next and he was almost perfect. Our farrier is also a certified equine massage therapist and was rubbing him a bit afterwards, it must have been a tight spot she rubbed because he looked like he was going to bite me, but he stopped himself. It's funny that he always acts like he wants to bite me and almost does, but then it's like a little light bulb goes off and he stops, and then basically punishes himself. It hasn't stopped him from biting other people, but he hasn't bitten me.
Pony was last. And she was the worst. She usually is the worst one. She actually kicked the farrier this time. I can't imagine how frustrating it would be to work on those little devils.
I've been doing spring cleaning in the barn. Urgh. The worst. So I went over to our trailer because I remembered I forgot to clean it out last time we hauled pony in it. When I went to the dressing room to get the broom the smell of all our tack in there made me want to load up and take the horses trail riding somewhere... Might be a bit too soon for that though...
