Shoeless and Photo Spam


Yesterday I was finally able to pull Suzie's shoes off - a kind friend of mine let me borrow her shoe puller and it made the job 10x easier. Comparatively, in 2014 we had just endured a snowmageddon, so it makes me feel like less of a shitty horseowner that I wasn't riding my horse around this time last year. But all is well. Suzie was good and I've layered her hoof soles up with venice turpentine in hopes to strengthen them. Shoes will go back on when we get back from vacation - around then she is due for a re-set anyways. I want to give her feet a chance to grow out so the farrier can fix them up as much as possible.

Patient, good mare.

Other than that, nothing much as changed. Hopefully with this Daylight Savings Time in effect I'll get some drives in on Spud.

For now though, enjoy some photos of my cute dogs:

It was hilarious because she had just fallen in from the cracked ice.

The bestest dog in the world.
My bandana is the best.

    1. Thank you :)
      And Suzie, for as much of a spaz as she can be is pretty tolerant of my oddness.

  3. Hopefully a little bit with naked feet will make the shoes stay on next time around!

    1. I'm hoping so. Generally she goes "shoeless" in the Winter since I'm not riding anyways.
