No Sedation

Paddock cleaning was taking place when I arrived this afternoon.

Then for the big news! Mara B was able to have new shoes put on without being sedated. Mara is such a good horse, until it comes to having horseshoes nailed on to her hoof, she simply has not tolerated it without being sedated. However today we let her eat oats (which she never gets to eat) to distract her while Brian pounded in the nails and it worked! I’m very pleased.

On the way back to Mara’s paddock we stopped to assist Devine load into his horse trailer. Putting Mara in first, made it more comfortable for Devine to then load, and it was a fun adventure for us.

So no riding but plenty of good horse activities for us today.
