Mara B was lucky to meet “Aunts” (and followers) Beth and Kay today! They were sweet visitors and great groomers. We all enjoyed the horse time plus the beautiful warm weather together. Mara B and I then rode across M to Swedish Mission Road for our outing. Mara gave me a little spring spin around on the way back, not sure why? There were no “issues” so we regrouped and calmly continued on our way. Spring riding can tend to be a bit of starting over again….
This afternoon Mara and I rode to the Meyers, and I always like seeing their speed limit sign! 15MPH is probably about our speed most days, which fits us both very well. Mara was great and our time together relaxing, good to be in sync.
Jennifer and Bella and Mara and I enjoyed a ride down the road together this afternoon. It was a very pleasant stroll with sunshine, mild temps and light wind. It felt so good to let the horses stretch their legs on an outside ride. Mara even felt a bit warm when we returned to the barn.
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.
