I had a lesson tonight on the Paint Mare, but before I got her I went to visit Ms. Slew and groom her. She was a dirty, dirty mare. She had her feet done on Monday, and was SO SO sore today, not impressed. I guess my farrier told my trainer she might be sore because the ground is so wet, and her frogs are soft. I'm not totally hoof knowledgeable, but I thought that's why they left some hoof wall, so that they didn't walk on their frogs?? Regardless, I am sort of done with watching Denali be sore.
I made her a nice warm bran mash and mixed some bute in with it so she'd feel a little better. I guess that wasn't enough because she stole my sandwich too...my ham sandwich.... Sigh... Oh Slew, you shouldn't eat meat! You're a vegetarian!!
Good lesson on the paint mare. I was SO TIRED that I asked if we could cut it early, and finish it this weekend. Thankfully my trainer was flexible. Tomorrow I get one of my two new students. Yay (sarcasm). The other one comes on Monday. OH! How I wish I could explain what was going on at my job. I think I need another blog for that one!!
