The weather has been nice. Finally! Which brings out the silly in the girls. Sure can’t blame them, it’s been a long, brutal winter, and they need some fun in the sun too!
We came into the pasture to find that all but Astrid were laying down, enjoying the warmth of the sun. While we were there Sable decided to half roll, and scrub her face on the ground. Everyone is itchy everywhere as the winter coats start to shed out.
She’s such a goofball, this horse is…she sees the camera and smiles, no matter what she’s doing.
I’m glad to have got this shot, because I had no idea Cookie has this white spot. You’ll notice a bit of a grin on her horsie face too. 😉
I have whole series of Astrid rolling-which will come in another post after I edit the pictures…
Since the winter coats are blowing, and it was Spring Break, The Kid and I spent some time grooming everyone. We took turns with Ruby and Astrid, Kid groomed Sable, and I got a few brush strokes on Cookie here and there.
Ruby does loves to be groomed. It’s one of the best ways to spend time with her. She’s actually pretty pushy about it, if you’re grooming someone else, so we try to tag team grooming. Someone is always with Ruby, while the other person grooms one of the others. We can’t always do it that way, so sometimes, Ruby has to be backed up, but most times, when there’s 2 or more of us out there, grooming goes very well.
Helper Horse wants to see what you are doing, all the time! LOL!
Astrid likes to be close to people all the time, so when I’m working on someone else, it’s like I’m the middle of a horse sandwich. She puts her nose on my shoulder and blows in my ear, she nibbles my hoodie, checks pockets for treats, and loves to lick my rubber boots.
But she’s a very sweet weirdo, and we love her. 🙂
