I was a little concerned about the big grasshoppers, but she just shook her head and kept going. I hate those crawly feet and I thought she'd object, but she didn't seem bothered. What a good girl!She looks nice with the natural wood cart shafts.
I don't think mine would tolerate grasshoppers very well. Peanut MIGHT, but Cappy'd have a fit
At least you had permission and learned something from the experience.That particular strap is always a stinker! I always get the thing backwards. Same with the wrap straps. They LOOK so easy until you take them off. Your story reminds me of when I was a kid and cleaned a double bridle for the first time. Straps and bits and curb chains and reins everywhere. Thankfully Mom came to the rescue.
What a good girl to deal with the obstacle so well!Drove Que Paso for the first time this year. We were kind of miserable with the heat/humidity and the knats so we just walked around for about 30 minutes or so. I used my new crossties under the metal carport for the fist time. It was wonderful. She stood still while harnessing and hitching and for me to get in the cart for the first time ever. She enjoyed the carport, too. We worked on backing, pivots, turns, and whoa/stand. Her whoa/stand were crappy but her pivots and turning were great. We ran into an obstacle with a shaft end (at a walk) and I had to back and pivot her to get off it and she did all this without getting flustered.
No, usually I have to clip him in August but this year he isn't hairing up as bad. I'm keeping his head and legs tidy. I might still have to later, but so far he's okay.Hard believe he'll be 24, he looks great Marsha. Have you done a mid summer clip yet? I just did my welsh pony yesterday. I was pretty hot and itchy afterwards, but he was cool as a cucumber.
