I had an early morning connection time with Mara B today, she was covered in sand and dirt after a heavy rain last night. I enjoyed cleaning her up and dusting her off.
We were low key because today would have been Benjamin’s 29th Birthday and we wanted to simply remember Benjamin reflect and rest today. (Here’s a photo of Benjamin with a horse I leased.)
So rest and reminisce is what we did today.
Maura took great care of Mara B again today, and even gifted her with one of her bridles from her past endurance riding days!
Mara B is stylin’ now, and has been so well cared for these past few days!
Cousin Maura G spent time with Mara B today! They bonded with some grooming and lunging exercises and enjoyed their stable time together.
While Jay and I are out West with our favorite cowboy, where we met a few of his neighbors.
Maura G and Mara B meet up with the Vet tomorrow.
Tire tubes and snowmobile treads entertained us today! Mara and I rode in the indoor arena and transported the tire tubes around, I tossed them off of her while riding and walked through them on the ground for a little fun. The snowmobile was parked outside the barn when I walked Mara B back to her paddock, so she investigated it and posed for a few photos next to it.
Maddi tells me that Mara B is really shedding out at home. My day was for reading and relaxing, and I’m sharing my book titles with you.
Mara had another frozen ice ball in her hoof this morning, and also had her farrier appointment today. The before photo shows the challenge for horses walking on a snow packed hoof. After her trim, her hooves were in much better shape. Mara and I both enjoyed Brian and Dillon, her friendly farriers and we rely on their talents for carrying for her feet.
