It was Fernando Farrier day!   (Sorry that I missed Monday… I had to work on Sunday and it was sooooo crazy busy, I was exhausted and just wanted to go to sleep.  So, I did.)


Wrigley. As long as he has hay, he is a good boy.

BG, always tries to be as polite as possible. But, with her splaying in the mud last year, her back end is still a bit tender. And, now her Spring allergies are back. With all that, she was still a good girl.

Finn was perfect. He is always perfect.  (Can you believe how big that tree is in front of him?!  I only planted that coming upon 2 years ago! Black Diamond Vermicompost is THE BEST.)

Gwen. She is older so one hip hurts a bit, but she was good. I had just braided her hair…

Missy Miss was surprisingly calm and quiet. Usually, she fusses for the first foot. Not today. She was an angel.  It is Amazing how well her feet have healed since she first came here.  She’s got mustang platters now. )

On the other hand, Dalton was not a patient boy today. So, I didn’t get any photos as I was keeping him steady. Dalton was upset because he knew it was his turn to be in the big field and he wanted to get there. As soon as we were done, I turned him out and he ran to the furthest corner. Dalton LOVES being in the big field.

Dodger. 40 years old and doing well. I give him green grass as often as is healthy for him, and it really perks up the old boy. He loves to eat near the paddocks. He thinks he likes to go into the big field, but it intimidates him once he is there… so in front of the paddocks is his favorite, safe, grazing area.

Norma always waits her turn. She comes up and stands there quietly. Mostly, she supports Dodger. Or she just wants to get it over with; I’m not sure. She is Such a perfect donk.
