When we got to the barn Ophelia and Denali were side by side in their pasture/run. They haven't taken the temporary fence down yet, but I don't think there will be a problem. Denali was a good girl. We took her blanket off and de-mudded her. She was so gross. She seems to have pony dandruff? After taking her blanket off she kept kicking her belly. Turns out she was pointing to where she wanted a good grooming. At one point she lifted her hind leg like a dog and held it while I scratched behind it, and under her stifle. It was pretty funny. She even kept her brain attached to her body for the most part.
Her feet are still looking really good (for what I know about feet.) I was going to ask my friend to take a picture for you to judge, but I forgot. :-/ Next time. I know the wet ground is making her frog a bit squishy, but the rest of her sole felt hard. Her feet have changed so much since going barefoot 2 years ago. I bet that she has gone up a shoe size.
Now for some photos! (Most of Ophie since her momma now lives in San Diego and hasn't seen her in two weeks.)
|Please read what the 'Big Kids' get. I laughed so hard. The 'Big Kids' are her personal horses. Of course they get fed. :)|
|So itchy!! SOO SOO Itchy!!|
|Ophie with her make-up. She was so upset that we took it off.|
|I love this mare...|
|Oh Mare-Face. You look so ugly when you are being nasty-mare-face.|
|This is Denali's Right Hind in 2009. The Lump has never gone away, and it was always pretty swollen.|
|Same leg yesterday. The lump is almost gone!! Yay. Not that it will make her magically rideable, but one less thing to worry about.|
