The ranch has been a busy place this week. Winds howling at 30-40 mph with gusts up to 60 mph made it so we had to eat our hay on the run. The hay even blew out of our feed tubs.
The photo is of Coelho having a bit of a fit today in the arena. He is not ready for his winter vacation to be over. He gave the SCC a bit of a hard time. Once he was saddled up and ridden he was just fine.
Shandi is still trying to be a big girl. She isn't being so pushy with the mares, they are teaching her herd manners.
Sir Darby was playing peek-a-boo in the arena with the DOR putting a shirt over his head while she was riding him. He was a real good boy about it.
Jack got his feet done and a new friend in his pasture. The two of them ran themselves silly. Jack was lathered up from all of his silliness. The farrier told the DOR if Jack was able to do that he should be perfectly fine carrying weight and walking. Jack will be heading up to the therapist to learn to carry himself correctly with a rider at the end of this month.
Mighty Mouse is still waiting to be gelded so he can come home. The DOR is heading up to Ellensburg to work with him tomorrow.
I am hanging out in a pasture keeping an older mare company. I needed to move so I could get some extra feed, mush. I always drop weight with the change of seasons from fall to winter and winter to spring. I just don't like drastic weather changes. Besides being Salty The Wonder Horse involves care taking duties.
That is all the news from Grumpy Old Horse Ranch where not all the horses are old and Sir Darby is the only one who is grumpy.
