Lots of snow dominated today’s horse time! Mara B practiced being tied and waiting patiently for me before our arena ride. Then Jay and I walked her through some deep snow on the return to her paddock. Mara closed her eyes as you can see, she’s had plenty of snow now I guess and so have we.
Just by chance, Mara B and I were tacking up and riding at the same time as Aubrey and her horse Chance! So today’s horse time spanned the generations, highlighting the ageless fun for gals and their horses. It was a treat for us.
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.
