Saturday morning I tied Emi up and then snagged Roz when he finished eating his grain. He loves being muddy but since it has been relatively dry here the past week I figured it would be a great time to knock the mud off. He cleaned up well and actually seemed to enjoy his time being groomed. His weight is still looking really good which is a great sign mid winter. After I let him go he posed nicely for me to take a few more photos.
Sunday afternoon, when I returned home from the barn, I wanted to wash Emi's dirty tail. I started off with just a bucket of water but quickly realized that wasn't going to do the trick. I pulled her out of her paddock and tied her to the trailer. She got the cold hose treatment on her hind legs and tail. While I washed she played with the shampoo bottle and with the end of her lead rope. I was struck by the fact that a year ago I wouldn't have been able do this that easily. My baby is growing up!
