|The best trot photo of the day, even if she was trotting down hill. |
I'm still trying to get a great trot photo of this girl. She just doesn't trot that much....
|I love her expression|
|A kind face|
|The face of a very happy, very muddy, rolling horse. Some things never change.|
Her mane is still totally out of control. Usually a couple inches at her withers fall on the right side. After that a few inches fall on the left, and the rest is split up the middle. It's still fine baby hair but it's gotten a lot longer. I braided it once, but as soon as I took it out it went right back to it's normal position. Most days I brush it over to the right, but tonight I brushed it to the left. I think it actually wants to lay on the left...Has anyone ever had success training a mane? If so, what did you do?
I also groomed Roz. As you can see from the above photos, he was super muddy. He absolutely loves to roll, which makes keeping him clean a full time job. He also doesn't usually enjoy grooming. Those two things are not a good combination. He needs a bath so bad and won't get one until the weather warms up again. At least he is clean under his blanket! He looks great (other than the mud) and is at a very nice weight. He's not the easiest keeper but he's not horrible either. Each day he gets free choice local grass hay, 5lbs of Purina Active Senior, and 2 scoops of Platinum. I also just had a fecal egg count done on him, and he's clear.
