Good Saturday Evening,
Well it was a good day. But then again, most days just being with the horses is a good day.
Today, Justice had his feet trimmed for the first time. He did great! He was a bit nervous at first as this was the first time with the tools. He has had his feet handled from the day he was born. He got with the program so quickly. Faith was placed in the round pen and she went to her normal spot and stood quietly. It is interesting how much a mare conveys to their little ones. If she fears, they fear and so on and so forth. But he remained fairly calm. I kept his little hoof clippings... :) Once we were done with his feet, I played around with him for quite awhile. I believe that once he is weaned we will find him easier to work with. We had some of the same issues with Hope. Jerri conveyed so much of herself to Hope that at times Hope was impossible to handle. Whereas AJ was laid back right from the start, as Apple was of that type of personality. It all worked out and it will once again.
I have grown very attached to Justice, and I think he is going to make an outstanding horse, so I have decided to allow him to steal my heart, and I will belong to him for the rest of our lives. I look forward to growing with him and learning together.
I puttered around with Jonah a bit today and of course Dublin had to get in on it. Little Bear is continuing to get stronger and stronger everyday, and is a big talker. You do not have to have anything, he just loves to whinney and get your attention. His coat is looking beautiful and the bald spots due to Alopecia (he came here this way) have beautiful new growth coming in.
All the horses are doing well, from the oldest to the youngest..it is good.
All the dogs are good, and have been lazing around the house, but of course going out at night seeing if there may be a tasty morsel..ugh..but it is what they do. The run, they play, and they are always on alert. They are a good group of hounds..gotta love them.
I would also like to take this opportunity to bump our Hay Drive, Doc Wilbur's Medicine Cabinet. There are some beautiful gifts being offered for the month of August. Thank you to everyone who has already participated and we wish you the best of luck.
I hope the remainder of your weekend is blessed with all the good that one could hope for. We will talk again soon.
