UGH, Monday

Actually I didn't mind too much coming to work today. It is a beautiful morning full of sunshine and not too chilly temperatures. I have a little bit of work to do, better than Friday when I was bored out of my mind.

My farrier finally came yesterday. The horses didn't get new shoes, I decided to keep them barefoot this winter since they are not being ridden. No need to spend that extra money and all. My mare did really well. She always has to be sedated and was this time but he used a different kind of drug where she would relax but still know what was going on. We needed to do this to try and work her out of her fears of having her feet picked up. I would imagine the fact that he didn't actually have to beat nails into her feet helped a bit. I know it would if it were me. That being said I imagine she would have preferred to have a pair of these


What girl wouldn't right?


Very funny Mom.

I remember that we had to twitch a few horses to get them shod. Never had to sedate one though. Are those your new shoes?

No Syd, those are Abby's. So had the idea a couple of days ago that I should let my daughter's gelding use them since he had lost 2 shoes. I have never twitched my horses. I would imagine this mare would kick the shit out of the farrier if we were to do that.

I just love her shoes.....Madison used to have a trunk full of dress shoes...she played dress up for hours.....those were the good ole days.

I think pink is her color and she would love those new shoes.
