I was doing some research though about treats for horses who have a tendency to put on weight easily (which could lead to things like insulin resistance and laminitis) and learned that a very healthy treat is green split peas, so I got some to try with the horses. Chrome and Faran have no complaints. Zep wasn't too sure about them. I'm not sure I like them because they are so small and easy to drop which is wasteful. And it take Chrome a second to get them out of my hand and he leaves behind gobs of slobber. Wait until you see the video. It's gross.
Oh and please ignore me in the video. I sound really dumb for some reason. I actually said "gape toothed Chromey" . . . what the heck does that mean?? I was referring to the way that he has his teeth wide open when he take treats, even though he's using his lips, which makes for a slobbery mess. I sound like a redneck. Just please ignore me in the video lol. And yes at the end I did thank Zeppelin for biting Chrome to stop him from crowding the gate lol. Talk about convenient timing. :D
Anyway I guess that's all for today. I'm hoping tomorrow is cooler because our farrier is coming out. This will be Faran's first trim since we brought him home. :) Wish us luck!
P.S. I forgot to mention we fly sprayed Faran tonight and he was very skittish of it again. My husband hasn't been practicing. I'll have to scold him lol. Just teasing. He eventually calmed down and let me spray him though. And he approached us of his own free will after we turned him loose so I don't think he's holding it against us. :) He wasn't acting crazy, he just wanted to dance around a bit.
P.P.S. Oh and I forgot to mention that when I finished brushing Faran I was standing there and Zeppelin walked up to me wanting attention so I let him sniff the brush. Then he let me gently brush his forehead and the left side of his neck. Yay! I was so excited. Okay that's all this time. I'm sure! :)
