I have mentioned our Farrier before, well here he is with one of todays great success`s! Sunny, has had her first shoes ever on today! The chap next to Sunny here is Ninian, the Farrier!
A first for us too, as she has never had anything done apart from being trimmed. She stood like the true “Lady” she is. Even the banging of the shoes at the anvil, the hammer on the foot, and even when the nails were hit home, she never flinched! I must have done something right with this horse! I had decided to shoe her as she goes back into work this week, and as we are going onto tarmac roads, she will need her feet protected.
Success number two! Wally! he was a little “Tinker” to catch, but a well thrown Lariat sorted that out!
But here is the thing, once I caught hold of him, well, it was like “wonderful!” He stood fantastically! As you can see, he isnt tied, the rope is on the floor, and he isnt bothered one jot!
A bit “ribby” maybe, but that will improve. He has rock hard feet! And learns fast. It was only a few weeks ago that we got him. And he has had his feet handled regular since then, so he is coming on nicely.
Barney`s turn next! God love this horse!
He has always stood well for Ninian, sorry about the odd shape of the horse, but I was a tad too close!
And finally, bringing up the rear! Here she is, the Matriarch of the herd………Gracie.
again she dont need tied, stands herself, and goes to sleep!
So that was the morning today! barney has his “new” secondhand saddle from ebay, so we are back on the road as it were! Money well spent!!
