Anyways, successful jump lesson this morning. I even took a picture of the ring set up so I don't have to try and remember it. These were the heights for the lesson after mine, we are still chilling around 2'
|Outside gymnastics with one strides, single on the other long side, singles on the diagonal|
After our ride, we got a bath. In case you think your horse can win the derp award, Fawkes would like you to know about his entry. In which I was washing his mane, he got bored, backed up and threw his head around, and managed to get the hose stream right in his ear. He was soooo pissed. He also spent his entire bath shaking like a dog so I got soaked too. Thanks buddy.
Because he will be clean for about 30 minutes, I wanted to get some photos. Then I decided to document his current colors, bumps, chips, and oddities. So, I present our study in orange:
|Princess horse won't eat apples ever since I poisoned apple sauce with bute|
|His pin firing scars which I still find so strange|
|He has lots of random white spots like this one behind his right ear.|
|This is the superficial hoof crack where he stepped on himself. Ugly, but bothers him not at all.|
|Conformation shot expert I am not, but look at all the clean and shiny! The white sock is white!|
|The sun was sadly behind a cloud because he is so shiny he actually can cause orange-blindness|
|Random scrapes on his right shoulder. The face in the bottom right is likely the culprit, although|
Fawkes is always asking for abuse.
|Hocks that will never heal no matter what bedding he has. Maybe an air mattress in his pen...|
|Our super fancy front pads|
|His tail has natural ombre effect and is basically a fall palette. |
I love its colors and how well it deals with my neglect
|Are you done yet lady or can I eat whatever you have??|
|So.....ass cheek chafing or, more likely, rubs from the fly sheet straps. Oh the indignity.|
|Little orange ermine markings on his sock!|
|Lots of white hairs on the left hind.|
