Slacker

Man I am failing at this blog posting thing!

I know I don't say it enough but I really do love my horse :)


Wednesday Henry got a light work out... lots of warming up and just getting him moving.

Hubby and B came so it was nice to have the help!

Friday Henry got a trainer ride... he was a gem :)

Here are some videos-

Saturday I turned him out, we think he might have a stone bruise- since we have nothing pending and I am in baby cooking mode I am just letting him take it easy for now- no need to push anything :)

Sunday it was amazing weather out, it's been tooooo long since Henry has a bath or even hosing. I know we are in a drought so I gave him a bath using the littlest water I could- a quick body hose down and scrub, quick man part washing and tail condition. He has so much dried sweat on him it was nasty what came off when the water hit him!







B and I spend about 3 hours soaking in the sun, tending to Henry, filling waters, cleaning, hanging out and chatting with everyone!

Henry had a good amount of time out hoovering ever blade of grass and drying- he even rolled into the hot wire fence that separates the "turn outs" which was funny cause I told him not to roll!! Should have listened to mom :)

More grazing while I cleaned his stall and filled the water.

Hubby and I are going to go on a date tonight, so Henry will get the night off. If he is feeling better- I'll do a light hack tomorrow, another light hack Wed if he is ok, off Thursday, trainer ride Friday and idk Saturday.

The forecast says that rain is coming so im glad I got a layer of dirt off of him before the next gets layered on ha!

  8. Lucky you with weather warm enough to bathe, would love to scrub loose hairs from mine; Nancy is shedding something awful - could use help from hose ;-)
